LAST ACTIVITY NIGHT OF THE YEAR

We need volunteers for activity night! Please go to: http://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm?go=s.signup&useFullSite=true&URLID=10C0D4CABA62CABF94-activity

The last activity night of the year is Friday, May 15, 6:30-8:30pm. If we don’t have enough volunteers we will need to reduce the activities during the event.

Prices are  $3 in advance ($1.50 for reduced lunch program), $5 at the door ($2.50 for reduced lunch program) or free for families that qualify.  Students enter at the back of the building, in the courtyard, and may be picked up in the front or in the back.  All students must be picked up promptly at 8:30pm.

 

THANK YOU

Many thanks to all the parents who brought in salads and desserts for our staff appreciation luncheon last Friday. The food was delicious, and the teachers and staff enjoyed it. We appreciate all our teachers and parents do to make Roosevelt an excellent school. Empty dishes can be picked up at the office. Thank you!

Hello wonderful parents of 8th graders. As you know our 8th graders are “graduating” and moving on to high school next year, sigh. In order to celebrate this accomplishment we are putting on a dance party for them after the promotion ceremony on June 9th from 8-10. We need your help to supply them with delicious, nutritious food for the evening – and some junk food too to celebrate 🙂 . Please sign up here: http://vols.pt/uFpq2Z
