Online Auction to Support Roosevelt

Additionally, if you would prefer to give a direct donation rather than bidding on items, you can donate through the following link. Any size donation is appreciated!

Walk & Roll Challenge

Roosevelt is participating in the Walk+Roll Challenge on Wednesday, May 22nd and we need your help! Our goal is to encourage as many students as possible to increase their physical activity by using active transportation modes like walking, biking, scooting, skating, busing, and carpooling. This year we have great incentives and prizes to encourage our students to get active!

Although we encourage students to walk, bike, carpool, bus, and skate all year long, students caught walking and rolling to school on Wednesday, May 22nd will get free incentives and be entered into a prize raffle (including hydroflask, portable hammock, summer One-Pass).

Walking and rolling to and from school is an excellent way to add physical activity into a daily routine. Kids need at least sixty minutes of physical activity every day to keep them healthy – and many kids in Oregon just don’t get enough. Positive experiences gained through walking and bicycling to school will pave the way for being physically active throughout life.

Thanks again for helping encourage healthy habits in our school community. We couldn’t do it without you. Want to help with this year’s Walk+Roll to School Challenge? Please contact Jennifer Smith at

Junior Hi-Tones Camp is a great opportunity for 5th-8th graders to spend a fun morning learning a pop song with choreography and vocal percussion. We’ll learn the song together, play games, have some snacks, and get to know each other. Campers are invited to perform the song with the Hi-Tones at their Trimester 3 Concert on Wednesday, May 29th, at 7pm in the NEHS Auditorium. Cost to participate is $10 and all proceeds go to the NEHS Choral Department.

South Eugene Basketball Information for Incoming 9th Grade Girls


Hello Basketball Families,

We are reaching out today to share information about the upcoming June basketball season. As the search for a head coach continues, we are moving forward with a modified schedule to ensure the girls have the opportunity to develop skills, gain experience and come together as a program.  We are planning an informational meeting on Tuesday May 14th in the SEHS main gym at 6:00pm.  The meeting with provide an opportunity for you to ask questions, register, complete waivers and make any payments necessary. (Families who qualify may receive financial support by emailing


Click on the link below to find a list of opportunities with team levels indicated:

Summer Sign ups

Please review your options. Our first step will be to gather information about interest. Staff and the athletic department will form teams based on numbers of participants and will be guided by the team level structure from the end of the winter season. We are working to solicit coaches and can finalize that process once the registration process is completed. Reminder; summer activities do not represent team placement during the season.  Summer is a time for athletes to keep their hands on the ball, gain experience and have fun.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to sign up using the link (Summer Sign ups) and email or call

Our head coach search continues and if we have hired a new coach prior to the summer season we will work collaboratively to integrate them into our current plans and possibly augment them if time and resources allow.
