Hey Roosevelt families! Roosevelt Activity Day (RAD) is Roosevelt's BIG fall fundraiser and it is on Friday, October 6. In conjunction with Walk and Bike to School Week we are going to raise money for Roosevelt, highlight active and healthy living and have FUN! After a modified morning schedule all students will walk through the local community with their house. Students will walk to raise funds to support ongoing programs, field trips, teacher grants, etc., and to promote school climate and spirit. Each house will also show its school spirit by dressing according to a theme, shouting cheers, or any other creative way the house decides to show its spirit. The house that raises the most money will win a house party.
We are asking students to collect donations. Please help our Roosevelt students achieve success by sponsoring them. There are five levels of fund raising: Walker ($25), Jogger ($50), Runner ($100), Marathoner ($150) and Ultra-Marathoner (over $200). Which one will your student be? How much can your student's house fund raise for Roosevelt? Students will receive their collection envelopes in house on Monday, September 25 so they can start collecting donations. Please make sure you read with your student the pink fundraising tips tucked inside the envelope. Turn in dates will be Monday and Tuesday, October 2 and 3, and Thursday and Friday, October 5 and 6. Also, family and friends can donate online at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/RooseveltRAD
So get moving Roosevelt, it’s RAD!
FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Dear Roosevelt Community! I hope you had a wonderful summer! We are thankful to begin this year
familiar with our surroundings. Spending an entire school year in the new facility helped us learn the best ways to use this space. We are finally unpacked! Now we embark on more change … a new schedule. As you may know, our staff developed a new schedule to support an increase in science minutes, a more equitable PE and health experience, and a more financially prudent outlook (to support similar class sizes). This will come with challenges as well. While we were able to emphasize some good things and make some positive changes, we certainly will need to get comfortable with less elective choice. This is a big shift that will be a challenge for many; however, we are hopeful the benefits of the change make sense to our community.
We encourage families to visit the school website often for current information and to sign up for eNews, the weekly electronic newsletter.
The website also lists information about fundraising and volunteer opportunities. Roosevelt values family support through donations, volunteering and academic assistance. EEF donations help Roosevelt to continue programs that allow for student choice and academic exploration; so thank you to all who support our school through EEF donations. Volunteers are also critical to the supportive environment and academic excellence at Roosevelt, so please consider either volunteering at school or assisting your student in achieving greatness.
Please attend Roosevelt’s Ice Cream Social in September so we can become reacquainted. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Many, many thanks to all of the truly magnificent parents, family members, students, staff, teachers, donors, South students, and community members who helped to create an amazing Showcase 2017! Thank you to those who spent months in the planning and executing of Showcase to ensure a fun evening for all. To those who joined us on Friday and spent the evening exploring all that Showcase had to offer and helping to make it a successful fundraiser, we appreciate your presence and participation. We are grateful for the time, energy, and heart that people put into making this event so special. What a fun way to celebrate the many elements that come together to make Roosevelt unique. Events such as Showcase are a great reminder that it truly takes a village and we are fortunate to be part of a truly remarkable community. Until next year…
