All sizes of Roosevelt spirit wear are back in stock! (For those that pre-ordered spirit wear, it will be sent home with your child.) Spirit wear may be purchased in the school office. Please be aware that the office is quite busy at the start of each school day and at dismissal, so please be patient with our office staff.
World’s Finest Chocolate…
This is our school’s biggest fundraiser of the year and helps to pay for so many programs offered throughout the year, so we really need parent support! If every family sold just 1 box of chocolate, our school would earn almost $20,000 which would cover the cost of art or almost 2 Chromebook carts.
Please note: Once you sign out a box of chocolate, you are responsible for the full cost of the box. Partially sold boxes cannot be returned to the office! If you are having trouble selling your entire box, PLEASE come by the school office – there may be other families that are willing to purchase some of your chocolate to sell and you can be matched up with those families.
We’re getting there…
So far the Enrichment Fund has raised enough to pay for our school’s Art teacher, Marlene Perez, free chess lessons every Tuesday, the Girls on the Run program and SMART Boards in more classrooms. The PTA would still like to purchase more technology and have money to offer scholarships to Outdoor Ed for 5th grade and Yosemite for 6th grade and pay for the parent chaperones to Yosemite. In addition to new technology and the 5th & 6th grade trips, any money raised this year will also go towards field trips ($20 per student), supplies for teachers, after school Enrichment and much more!
You can still turn in your $150 donation to the Roosevelt Enrichment Fund to have a chance to win an iPad Mini! The raffle will be held at the November PTA meeting.
Checks can be made out to Roosevelt PTA. The PTA also accepts credit cards. Please stop by the office or send your pledge forms in an envelope to school with your child. Anyone that gives $150 will get a special green t-shirt that your child may wear as uniform, a gift bag and a chance to win an iPad Mini! (If you have turned in your $150 and have not received your raffle ticket, green shirt or bag, please contact the school office.)
