THANK YOU TO ROOSEVELT VOLUNTEERS….

In the wise words of Winston Churchill, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”  The staff at Roosevelt Middle School benefits from this spirit on a daily basis and we wholeheartedly appreciate our volunteers.  On behalf of the RMS staff, I would like to thank all volunteers for their dedication to our students and families.  Roosevelt Middle School is very fortunate to have so many devoted volunteers who support our learning environment.  There are volunteers who support our main office staff, our library, our activity nights, our HAP program, mentor program, and much, much, more.   It is clear that the Roosevelt staff would not be able to offer programs and services to students and families without the support of our volunteers. Thank you again, Chris (and the staff)

CHECK THE LOST AND FOUND

The lost and found has grown quite large.  If your student has lost an article of clothing or a lunch box, then make sure to check the lost and found right away because everything left in the lost and found closet is going to be donated on Friday, May 5.
