We invite you to one or both of these events on Thursday, December 13th to build community within our Roeper family and to share the holiday spirit with our neighbors!
#1 Annual Holiday Caroling: 6:00-7:15/7:30pm (meet at 6pm in the Birmingham Campus Cafe)
Members of the Roeper Community will gather on the Birmingham campus to eat goodies, warm up for five minutes and then go out into the neighboring Poppleton area for our annual holiday caroling. Offering our neighbors a choice of religious Christmas, secular Christmas, winter seasonal and Chanukah songs, we will warm their hearts and ours with about 45 minutes of sharing the holiday spirit. Abha Dearing, our MS/US Choral Teacher will lead us. She wants you to know singers of all ability-levels are welcome to come and enjoy.
Students of all ages, parents, staff, alumni and friends of Roeper are invited. Don’t think this is just for the Birmingham campus just because it is occurring there; we want to especially invite folks from the Bloomfield campus and the Lower School.
We will have cookies, pizza, hot chocolate and cider. This event is endorsed and supported by the U.S. Student Government, Middle School Student Government, the Fun, Fun, Fun Committee and Santa Claus.

#2 New Tradition – Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams at Beaumont Hospital: 7:45-8:30pm (meet at Beaumont Hospital & bring a flashlight or glowstick)
Organized by the Beaumont Children’s Pediatric Advisory Council, at 8 p.m. every evening in December, pediatric patients will shine flashlights from the hospital windows and look for community members standing outside the hospital to flash them back. It only takes a few minutes, but means a great deal to young patients and families. “Many children are unable to leave their rooms and can feel isolated in the hospital as the rest of the world continues without them,” Beaumont Children’s Child Life Supervisor Kathleen Grobbel said. “With the help of the community, we can make sure they go to bed with smiles on their faces.”
Please plan to arrive by 7:45 p.m. and allow time to park. Carpooling is recommended. Participants will gather on the sidewalk near the Medical Office building and across from the East entrance. Look for the folks holding Roeper posters so we can congregate together. Parking is available in the small parking lot across from the North Parking Deck and just East of the Medical Office Building on the Beaumont, Royal Oak campus. From the Thirteen Mile entrance, follow the blue signs toward the North parking deck and park in the lot across from the parking deck entrance. Additional parking is also available near the Coolidge entrance and at the Neuroscience Center.
