Roosevelt Weekly Parent Info

Happy New Year!!! Welcome back!


Here are a few reminders for the week:


THANK YOU to anyone who helped to raise money for Climb to Feed Kids. It was a fun way to end the week before Winter Break. Show your school spirit by wearing Roosevelt gear and cheering on the Roosevelt team. We climb the stairs at 9:00.


ExCEL: IF your child is signed up to attend ExCEL, which is an after-school program focused on math, this begins January 8. It runs Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays after school until approximately 4:00. You should know whether or not your child will be attending, as you had to register them, but should you have questions, please contact your child's teacher. This is offered to students in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. We will NOT be offering it to 5th grade students, as we did not have enough students who were able to attend.
