AS A COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS, RMS STRIVES TO CREATE AN INNOVATIVE, RIGOROUS, CULTURALLY RELEVANT LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT EMPHASIZES COLLABORATION AND A CULTURE OF RESPECT.
Parent-teacher conferences are Thursday, November 8, 8am-4pm. Your student should have received a pink colored appointment request form from the advisor Monday, October 8, but it is also available by clicking on the button below. Scheduling is completed on a first come, first served basis. Due to high demand, it is not possible to schedule all requests. Therefore, if you don't have concerns, you may choose not to participate. Your conference schedule will be emailed to you prior to November 8.
All conferences will be in both the small gym (teacher last names A-L) and the large gym (teacher last names M-Y). Please enter at the gym entrance doors next to the parking lot. Parents move from table to table, according to a schedule that will be provided, to meet with up to three teachers for a ten minute appointment with each.
Appointment request forms are due in the office by Wednesday, October 17.
Roosevelt Activity Day (RAD)
House has an amazing history of being the backbone of Roosevelt for more than 30 years. Through House, students feel a part of a smaller community, and we strive to establish a strong connection with their House Advisor and Housemates. The role of the House Advisor is to advocate for, and mentor your child for 3 years at Roosevelt. In addition, they are the communication conduit between school and home. Along with our one counselor at Roosevelt for 600 students, we essentially have 22 adults supporting this role. In order to support your child and give the House program more resources, we need to raise money for more staffing. The more teachers we have, the smaller the class and House sizes will be across the school.
Roosevelt Activity Day (RAD) is October 26th. Houses will be designated into 4 neighborhoods and enter into a series of fun events (community building) with the goal to have a fun competition between Houses and build trust and community in each.
You can be part of RAD this year and help ensure the success of every child at Roosevelt by donating. Your support is crucial to our efforts to add more House Advisors at Roosevelt.
We would greatly appreciate a donation of ANY amount to help us reach our year long fundraising goal of $100,000. This goal breaks down to $159 per student. Some families can not give, some families can give more. Please contribute as much as you are able.
Students will receive a fundraising envelope with fundraising tips on October 15th. Envelopes containing donations should be brought to school the week of October 22. Here are the ways you can make a donation:
- Make a donation online at https://www.schoolpay.com/pay/for/Roosevelt-MS--Roosevelt-Activity-Day-RAD/IdKDF
- Write a check to Roosevelt Middle School. In memo write “staffing.”
- Ask friends and family to donate to Roosevelt Middle School
