SHOWCASE 2016- RETRO ROOSEVELT

Showcase Roosevelt is May 13th, 6:00-8:30.  Did you know Showcase is our biggest community event and fundraiser of the year?  Showcase is sponsored by PAR and put on by RMS staff, parents, grandparents, and community members–it takes a village to make it happen.  Not only is Showcase a fun family event with games, food, and entertainment, but Showcase is also the main venue through which PAR’s annual commitment of a .25 FTE (or in monetary terms, $27,800) is raised, which helps with staffing for the next school year.  How can you help? Watch for upcoming news about your student’s House Basket themes, then donate toward that theme; look for an upcoming link to sign up to volunteer; donate or ask a local business to donate an item to go in the Silent Auction–it can be as little as a t-shirt or as big as a vacation rental.  Questions? Contact Dana Fleming at alasaban@sbcglobal.net or Julie Hubbard-McNall at jhmcnall@gmail.com.

E. 24th Avenue Parking Meeting

A meeting to discuss potential changes to 24th Avenue from Willamette Street to Alder Street (including parking removal, addition of buffered bike lanes, and other potential projects) will be held Wednesday, April 13th, at 7 p.m. at Roosevelt Middle School (680 E 24th Avenue, Cafeteria). The meeting will present parking utilization data, site plans and long-term traffic control plans on E 24th Avenue. Removal of some parking spaces would facilitate buffered bike lanes on E 24th Avenue and respond to access control plans at the new Roosevelt Middle School.

INCOMING FRESHMAN PARENT NIGHT April 27 7pm

Hello incoming Parents of the class of 2020.  We would like to cordially invite you to an information session on April 27th in the SEHS auditorium at 7:00 p.m. to help prepare for the transition from Middle to High School.  We are looking forward to having your students in our classrooms this next year and would like to share some information that we know parents have found helpful at this important time for you and your student.  In addition to providing information about summer program opportunities and how to make the most out of the last months of middle school we would like to give parents an opportunity to hear about the most effective ways parents can support their student in the first few weeks or months of their high school careers.  We know this is a busy time of the year with lots happening for each of you so we promise this will be time well spent and will certainly lead to a more successful transition.
