Halloween Parade at 8:15am on the lower playground! Students may come to school in their costumes. For those new to the school, you should know that Roosevelt LOVES Halloween and we go all out! The costume parade begins on the lower playground at 8:15am so that the students can show off their costumes. Parents are welcome to join in the fun! Prizes are given in many different categories – best homemade, best makeup, best theme, etc. Costume rules: no toy weapons and no gore. Please remember that the students need to change back into their uniforms after the parade, so pack a uniform if they are not able to wear it under their costume.
Many classes/grades will be having Halloween or Harvest themed parties at some point during the day. Please check with your child’s teacher to see if any food items or supplies are needed.
3rd Grade, Room 5 will leave at 9:00am for their field trip to Woodside Store.
Don’t miss out! Come and join in the fun with a night of Spooktacular Bingo! at 6:00pm. Our Bingo nights are always so much fun! Will our Bingo callers carry on the tradition and come in costume? There’s only one way to find out! Come in your costumes or just come as you are! It’s a fun night for the whole familiy!

5th Grade Parents…
This year Roosevelt will be hosting Moving on Up to Middle School! on November 3 at 6:30pm in Room 8. This is an information night for parents of current 5th graders about the Middle School programs at Roosevelt. As your 5th grader is growing and developing academically, we want you to see how PBL grows with them in the Middle School grades. Students whose parents attend will receive a Free Dress Pass, 1 Raccoon Buck, a homework pass AND a chance to win a pair of Roosevelt sweatpants!
Parents of 5th graders not currently attending Roosevelt are also welcome to attend. Please call our school office to reserve a spot.
