TEACHER/STAFF APPRECIATION LUNCHEON

We at Roosevelt are incredibly fortunate to have such a dedicated group of educators and individuals who work tirelessly to make Roosevelt a warm, welcoming learning environment for all of our students. Whether it’s before, during, or after school, the time and energy they  put into their work does not go unnoticed. For that reason and so many more, next week we  will celebrate our teachers and staff for all that they do . On Friday, May 19th, PAR will provide a delicious lunch for all teachers and staff in the building. PAR will provide the main course, but would love contributions of salads, drinks, and desserts to round out the meal. Please go to https://tinyurl.com/rmsstaffappreciation and sign up to bring something that day as a way of saying thank you. With gratitude, Parents At Roosevelt
