volunteerInterested in Volunteering at Roosevelt?

We would love to have you volunteer! To get started, please complete the background check at www.helpcounter.net/eugene. If you have already completed a CBC (Criminal Background Check) at another 4J school, you will need to complete a new one at RMS because they are site specific.  Once you have received approval, your application is valid for two years. Make sure to fill up the section: “What are you interested in?”. Thank you!


PAR (Parents At Roosevelt) is organizing this year’s Showcase, our annual fundraiser for Roosevelt Middle School. We are looking for VOLUNTEERS to help with the event. Please go to signup.com to see in which area you could help. Would like to help but are not sure which area to sign up, or you have question contact me.

Do you have students at South Eugene? They are welcome to help as volunteer during the event to earn hours, have them send an email to fuhriman_l@4j.lane.edu.

Thank you for helping with RMS fundraising event.


The book Fair is coming soon! Please plan to stop by the library during Showcase or before or after school April 26-May 1st to get some great books for your student and your whole family.

All proceeds support our library to purchase new titles and OBOB books.

Parents can also shop the online fair starting April 19.  Check out this book fair link:

Please contact Thishya Narayanan at thishya_n@yahoo.com if you have any questions about the fair.

We have several yearlong volunteering opportunities:

Parent Lunch Supervision: Our principal, Chris Mitchell, would really love to have parent volunteers to help with lunch supervision.  It would be great to have a parent or two each weekday who could circulate around the building during lunch, be a familiar presence for students, and if needed to gently remind students of expectations.  The 6th grade lunch is from 11:16-11:49 M, T, Th and F and from 11:02-11:35 on Wednesday.

The 7/8 grade lunch is from 12:22-12:55 M, T, Th and F and from 12:10-12:34 on Wednesday.  There is greater need for the 7/8 lunch, but we would appreciate any help you can provide.  Volunteers can be present from one to five days per week and you are welcome to eat at the cafeteria.  They serve delicious lunches for  $4.00. 

Crossing Guard: We are looking for a volunteer who could be present with Will at the end of the school day, for about 15 minutes, to help students cross the road safely. The times are M, T, Th and Friday from 3:30-3:45 and Wednesday from 2:30-2:45. Opportunities are available from one to five days per week.

To indicate interest in these or any other volunteer opportunities, please email our volunteer coordinator, Laura Fuhriman at fuhriman_l@4j.lane.edu.
