Beautiful Day: This Saturday (Oct 21)

Beautiful Day is this Saturday October 21st, from 8:30 am -1:30 pm. This is an annual event where volunteers sign up ahead of time to work on projects at various schools in our district – including Roosevelt! Projects range from garden projects, painting, deep cleaning, spreading mulch, weeding, and more. The theme is to DO GOOD TOGETHER, and this happens as people from different Redwood City communities come together to serve our schools.

Please invite friends and family to work with you on the project of your choice. You’ll get a uniform-approved Beautiful Day shirt, lunch, and the chance to do good.

Please sign up ahead of time at
If you have any questions, please contact Victor at
