August Events in the Roseville and Rocklin Communities
Roseville Parks and Recreation
Get back into the swing of school with Roseville Parks, Recreation and Libraries.
Students in grades 1-8 can get assistance during Homework Help at the Maidu and Riley Libraries from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, starting August 28. Shy readers can read to a dog at the Downtown Library on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month.
If your children need somewhere to go before or after school, Adventure Club is the place to be. Open to students in the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District and Roseville City School District, they’ll experience fun activities, meet new friends and finish their homework while spending time in a safe place with positive role models.
Learning isn’t just for kids! Check out a STEAM Kit at one of Roseville’s libraries, and work on collaborative projects focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math as a family.

Rocklin has partnered with Skyhawks Sports Academy, National Academy of Athletics, and Vision Soccer Training to offer various sports programs for kids. There’s also a junior sports academy where youngsters (ages 4-6) will build hand-eye coordination and motor skills while having fun playing flag football and capture the flag, and going through obstacles. rocklin.ca.us/recreation
Expand your child’s mind at one of Rocklin’s interactive academic programs. Students will sharpen their investigative skills at a “Mystery and Myths” workshop, or awaken their inner maker with a “Mini DaVinci” course. Teens also have opportunities to study for their SATs, or strengthen their inner mathematician. rocklin.ca.us/classes
