Parent Volunteers Needed…
We’re looking for parents to work with the different grade levels and chair events because many of our current event chairs will be graduating out of Roosevelt with their student this year or next. Events are assigned to grade levels for the work, but we need people that are willing to direct the volunteers.
The PTA is looking for parents to organize restaurant fundraisers which involves contacting restaurant managers, arranging a date and sending out flyers.
And finally, we need help with our school’s blog and Facebook account. You can decide your level of help – taking pictures in classrooms to be posted on the blog and Facebook page or writing a weekly update once per month.
Anyone interested in any of the above opportunities should attend the January 25th PTA meeting at 6:00pm in Room 14 or contact the school office.
Roosevelt Board Report…
Each school is scheduled to make a presentation to the School Board once every 2 years. On February 10 at 7:00pm, it’s Roosevelt’s turn to present to the School Board. Parents and students are welcome to attend to hear about what Ms. Girardi has planned for Roosevelt and to show your support for our school and teachers. The presentation should last about 30 minutes.
