RMS Wildcat Weekly

November 22, 2019 Information for our Families

Happy Friday!

Greetings Wildcat Families!

First off, thank you to all our Wildcats for a great week! We have a lot to be grateful for at Roosevelt, and we are especially grateful for our wonderful students, staff, and families in our school community. We are grateful for the many students who were honored this morning as Wildcat Students of the Month. These students were nominated by their teachers for displaying the PAWS of the Month: Collaboration. We appreciate their great efforts as Wildcats! We are also grateful for the performers who so bravely and generously shared their talent at our Wildcats Got Talent Show last night! Our Choir Director Mrs. Inouye gave a fantastic performance of our National Anthem, and the many students who performed were amazing! We also want to thank Christy Nicholson, PTA volunteer, for her skillful organization of the whole event. Thank you and congratulations to all!

Please remember that there is no school next week. School will resume on Monday, December 2nd. We wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and a relaxing break!

Attendance: Attendance is key to student success! Please encourage your student to attend school every day and arrive on time. Remember, absences must be cleared within 72 hours (3 school days) after student returns to school. We also appreciate when you schedule dental/doctor appointments outside of the school day to avoid instructional interruptions.

Safety Reminder: Parents, please remind your students to use the crosswalk when arriving or leaving school. The heavy traffic makes it unsafe for students because drivers may not see them as they cross the street.

Health office: Due to the continued warm weather, please send a refillable water bottle with your student daily. Thank you to all the parents/guardians who have been providing proof of updated immunizations.

We will have Spanish interpretation available at all forums. Further, we will be posting to the Vista Unified web page a link to a digital feedback form for all community members who are not able to attend a forum in person.
