INFORMATION ON RAD!

Hey Roosevelt families! Roosevelt Activity Day (RAD) is Roosevelt’s BIG fall fundraiser and it is held on Friday, October 6.  In conjunction with Walk and Bike to School Week we are going to raise money for Roosevelt, highlight active and healthy living and have FUN!  After a modified morning schedule all students will walk through a designated neighborhood with their house.  The house that raises the most money will win a house party and houses that raise more than $1000 will get to throw water balloons at the administrators.  Each house will also show its school spirit by dressing according to a theme, shouting cheers, or any other creative way the house decides to show its spirit.

There are five levels of fund raising: Walker ($25), Jogger ($50), Runner ($100), Marathoner ($150) and Ultra-Marathoner (over $200). Students should have received their collection envelopes in House on Monday, September 26, to start collecting donations!  Please make sure you read with your student the green fundraising tips tucked inside the envelope.  Turn in dates will be Monday and Tuesday, October 2 and 3, and Thursday and Friday, October 5 and 6.  Also, family and friends can donate online at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/Roosevelt/RAD.  So get moving Roosevelt, it’s RAD!

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
RAD will take place between 12-1:10pm, Friday, October 6th, and we need 2 parent volunteers for each house. Please join us by signing up at  http://signup.com/go/dnYqMK or contact Laura Fuhriman: fuhriman_l@4j.lane.edu.  

PAR PARENT EDUCATION NIGHT

Please join us for our first PAR Parent Education Night of the year, a screening of the the film Screenagers, on Wednesday, October 17th at 6:30 in the dining hall. Following the screening, we will hold a discussion about the film. There is a sliding scale fee to cover the cost of acquiring the film. Details on how to purchase tickets will be available later this week, so stay tuned for a separate email with that information. To find out more about the film, visit https://www.screenagersmovie.com.

YEARBOOK

This year the Roosevelt yearbook will be created in Yearbook Club with parent volunteers as advisors. If your student is interested in joining the Yearbook Club, then encourage him or her come to an informational meeting on Wednesday, October 4 in room, C3 after school at 2:35. Regular weekly meetings will take place on Wednesdays right after school from 2:35-3:35. Extra hours may be needed outside the club time to meet deadlines, attend activities, take pictures, etc. This is a great way to show your creativity and contribute to the history of the school. Hope to see interested students Wednesday!

PARENTS AT ROOSEVELT (PAR) UPDATE

PAR is off to a great start! We had a fantastic turnout for our first meeting and are looking forward to a year filled with greater family involvement and input. Our goal is to create a meeting schedule that allows for maximum attendance and encourages participation from as many families as possible. Please stay tuned for our (early) October meeting date and time. Email ancborrevik@yahoo.com for further information about PAR (Parents At Roosevelt).

BOX TOPS – ANOTHER EASY FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY

It’s time to turn in Box Tops for fall! You likely purchase items with the pink Box Top$ for Education logo.  Many of you already clip and drop off the Box Top coupons and drop them off in the collection bin in the RMS office. Each Box Top coupon is worth 10 cents for RMS – they add up! Our first submission will be the end of October – please turn in Box Tops by Friday, October 27th to count toward the fall submission. Thank you!
