ROOSEVELT ROUGHRIDER TRACK AND FIELD 2017

WHEN: Practices begin on Monday, March 20. Practices will be held every Monday-Thursday from 3:45PM – 5:30PM, except on Wednesdays 2:50PM – 4:30PM due to our early release schedule.

WHO: Any current RMS student who is interested in participating on this year’s track team is welcome to participate.

COST: The cost for the season is $100.00 per student-athlete. There are scholarships available based upon individual/family need.

WE DO NOT WANT MONEY TO PREVENT SOMEONE FROM PARTICIPATING!

MEETS: Track meets will begin on Thursday, April 13 and be held most Thursdays until the 4J Middle School District Meet on Thursday, May 24th. Dual meets (the 1st four meets of the season) start @ 4:45 PM and typically last around 2-3 hours.

WHY: Being part of the track team at RMS is important in a variety of ways. First, it provides a healthy activity that many of our students need in our current world of technology and video games. Second, it teaches each athlete the importance of being part of a team. Finally, it gives our students a chance to connect and foster positive, supporting relationships with people, both students and staff, they may not normally interact with during the regular school day.

Required paperwork and season schedules are available in the office and from Coach Eric Johannsen. Please don’t hesitate to contact Coach Johannsen if you have any questions. Phone: 541-790- 8551, johannsen _ e@4j.lane.edu

Track meets will begin on Thursday, April 13 and be held most Thursdays until the 4J Middle School District Meet on Wednesday, May 24th.

WANTED: PICTURES FOR YEARBOOK 

The yearbook team is looking for pictures of Roosevelt students playing extracurricular sports. If you have any good photos of your Roosevelt student playing sports outside of Roosevelt, then before the end of March, email a digital copy to the yearbook at jessica@gaiacreative.com.

SEND A NOTE IF YOUR STUDENT HAS AN APPOINTMENT DURING THE DAY

Please help us avoid interrupting classes. If your student needs to leave during the school day, please send a note to school with your student, including the time s/he should be excused from class and the reason for leaving. Your student should then show the note to the teacher at the beginning of class and excuse her/himself at the proper time. This is our preferred way of handling students needing to leave during the day. Thank you for handling this in advance and for helping us have fewer interruptions during instructional time.

CONGRATS CHESS CLUB!

Congratulations to the chess team, which won the State Championship over the weekend.  Players on the team are Jack McClain,  Victor Dossin, Arvind Mahadevan, Alejandro McClain and Leo Reeves.
