ACTIVITY NIGHT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

There will be a Valentine’s Day themed activity night on Friday, February 12th.  We’ll need lots of parent volunteers to staff the event.  Please contact Laura with your interest: laura@trustywords.com.

 

DONATIONS FOR CAROL SINCLAIR

Many of you may be aware that our choir and language arts teacher, Carol Sinclair, is on medical leave for cancer treatment.  An account has been set up at Selco Credit Union for donations to assist with Carol’s medical expenses.  Donations can be made at any Selco location to the Carol Sinclair Medical Fund, Account No. 532488.

 

ACTIVITY NIGHT FUNDRAISER

Roosevelt’s Student Government class has established this month’s Activity Night as a fundraiser to help with Choir and Language Arts teacher Carol Sinclair’s medical expenses as she battles cancer. This means that admission to the evening’s event will be FREE for everyone, including student guests with a properly authorized permission form; but a donation, similar in price to regular admission prices of $3-$5, is encouraged. Students who wish to attend Activity Night will still obtain their Activity Night card from their advisors and may make an optional donation at that time, or they make an optional donation at the event, but donations are NOT required to attend.

REPEATED FROM LAST WEEK

SCHOOL CHOICE ACTIVITIES AT ROOSEVELT

This year’s dates for Roosevelt’s school choice activities are below:

School information presentation: (Th), 6:00–7:15 p.m.  February 25

School information presentation: (F), 9:45–11:00 a.m.  February 26

*All events are drop-in, no reservations required!

 

ROOSEVELT MIDDLE SCHOOL EXHIBIT- PLEASE HELP

With construction of the new Roosevelt Middle School well under way, work is also progressing on creating an exhibit that will honor the historic Roosevelt Middle School (1950-2016). This exhibit will interpret the historic school structure itself and celebrate the students, staff, and community that have been a part of Roosevelt’s story since 1950.

This is where you can help. We are looking for historic photos and stories from people who attended, worked, or otherwise visited Roosevelt from 1950 to 2016. It may be a funny photo, a fond memory, or something else from the past. What was on the walls? How were TVs used in classrooms? When did you first use a computer at Roosevelt?

In addition, we are looking for pieces of material history. What’s material history? It can be lots of things! Maybe it’s an old schedule or newsletter from the past, a piece of art made for class, a lesson plan or syllabus, homework from long ago, sports jerseys, programs for musicals… If you think the object is interesting or fun, let us know and it might be displayed for future visitors and students to see!

Please submit all memories to rms_memories@4j.lane.edu.  Thank you.

 

TEEN AND TECHNOLOGY INFO NIGHT
