Roosevelt Weekly Parent Info

Hello to all Roosevelt Raccoons! Here are a few reminders for the week:


Mankato Area Public Schools is seeking feedback on the proposed 2018-19 and 2019-20 school calendar years. Four versions of each school year have been posted on the MAPS website under Families and Students "Calendar" on our District homepage. Feedback from our community stakeholders will help to inform the next two school calendar years. Here is a link to a letter that details the timeline, gives directions that explain how to access the calendars, and outlines the three options for giving feedback.


• Yearbooks are on sale! Here is the link you can use to order your child's yearbook. The Roosevelt code is: 3686718. As a reminder, 5th graders receive a FREE yearbook, a $12 value courtesy of the Roosevelt PTO. If 5th graders would like to add personalization or other upgrades, parents will have to add these items and pay for these additional costs using the paper order form and not the online option! If you have a 5th grader and do NOT want any extras, do nothing! Isn't that nice??
