PLEASE HELP WITH SHOWCASE ROOSEVELT – PLANNING MEETING TOMORROW

There are a variety of different ways in which you can help to make Showcase Roosevelt 2017 a success. Our main committees are: auction and fundraising, publicity and decorations, food, entertainment and showcase of talent, and student activities and games. While some of these categories are still in need of chairs to help guide them, all need manpower in the planning process. If you are interested in helping us put on this year’s event, please join us on Friday, February 3rd, from 9:00-10:00 in the RMS office conference room as we continue planning for Showcase. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please contact Alexis Borrevik at ancborrevik@yahoo.com. We will begin meeting more regularly as we get closer to PAR and look forward to working with many Roosevelt families.

MUCHO GUSTO FUNDRAISER Feb 2 – TODAY!

Mucho Gusto is sponsoring a fundraiser for Roosevelt on February 2.  A group of students in STOP (Start Teaching Others Peace) and the student government class is trying to raise a total of $1,800 to bring a guest speaker, John Halligan, to our school to raise awareness about and prevention of teen suicide, bullying and harassment.  Mr. Halligan has presented at schools all across the country.  These Roosevelt students feel it would be really helpful for all Roosevelt students to hear Mr. Halligan’s presentation.  

Please use the attached flyer at Mucho Gusto on February 2.
