Because there was no school last Friday (Friday, May 1), the May PAR Business Meeting was  moved to tomorrow, Friday, May 8, 9:00-10:30 am, in the Welcome Room across from the office.  All parents/guardians of RMS students are PAR members and are invited to attend.



1)  Dickie Jo’s and Dickie Yo’s are sponsoring a fundraiser for Roosevelt Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14.  Twenty-five percent of the value of your order will be donated to Roosevelt, so pick up a fundraising flyer in the office. The Flyer is also attached.



The last activity night of the year is Friday, May 15, 6:30-8:30pm.  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.  If your student wants to invite a friend from another local middle school, permission forms may be picked up in the office and must be returned with all signatures by Wednesday, May 13.  See the attachment for more details.

Also, if you’d like to volunteer or/and have props for photo booth to donate (hat, boas, empty frames…) please contact Laura at

The 2015 UO Science and Invention Fair (in cooperation with Eugene & Springfield Public Schools) is a chance for children of all ages to develop an enthusiasm for science by designing and carrying out his/her very own experiment. The fair is open to all Lane County children in grades K-8.  The fair will be held on the UO Campus May 9th, 2015 11am-4pm. This event is open to the public and family friendly. It is our goal to make science fun and accessible for all children. We think of this fair as an introductory event designed to encourage students’ interest in science. To that end, we have sought to make the rules and requirements of this event as simple and straightforward as possible.  This fair is open to all members of the public. Even if you are not entering a project, come and have fun learning new things! The fair will feature booths and tables from a number of science outreach programs in the community including SPICE and the Science Factory. A number of demonstrations and activities will take place during the judging and the fair will culminate in an awards presentations and a fun physics demonstration.  For more information, please visit
