The Week of September 19, 2022

Roosevelt Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We finally have some cooler weather now that we are almost 5 weeks into the school year. Students are enjoying the new playground and playing games on the turf at recess times.

We hope to start the Walking Club this week! Ms. Tobin has planned to run the Walking Club on Mondays and Wednesdays during the lunch hour. We still need a few more volunteers to make this happen! We need one more volunteer on Monday, September 19th and 3 more to run the Walking club on Wednesday. Please click on the Sign Up Genius and consider signing up for a volunteer slot or two! We appreciate your help making this a successful and fun for our students!

Jennifer Combs, Principal
