Roosevelt Weekly Parent Info
Hello to all Roosevelt families! A few reminders for the week:
• Climb to Feed Kids: Tomorrow is Dollar Dress Up Day to help raise money for our Climb to Feed Kids fundraiser. It will be opposite day, and your child can bring a $1 and dress up. Thank you for your support of this!
• Coffee with the Principal: I would love, love, love to see some of you join me for coffee at Cub Foods West on Friday, December 21 from 7:30-8:30 AM. Please consider coming, as it is great to connect with the Roosevelt community. Just drop your kiddos off at school, and come take 10 or 15 minutes to sit and breathe. It'll be a great way to start your day!!!
• Rocky Time: Today we had some fun playing BINGO! Thank you to all you who donated awesome prizes.
• Roosevelt third graders have the opportunity to participate in the statewide Read to the Final Four contest using myON Reader. Third grade myON reading minutes will count toward Roosevelt's standing in the Read to the Final Four bracket. Roosevelt needs to be in the top 17 schools to move on to the bracketed tournament rounds in January. I have heard that Roosevelt is currently in 20th place...keep reading Raccoons!
Have a fantastic winter break, Raccoons. Here's wishing everyone a safe, relaxing, and fun break. See you in 2019--school resumes on Wednesday, January 2.
Capstone Literacy Day
A huge shout-out to Capstone for sponsoring a Literacy Day at Roosevelt. Each student went home with 2 FREE BOOKS in addition to hearing authors speak about their books. Wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you Capstone!
Lunch with the Principal
Taylor won this month's Lunch with the Principal, inviting two of his friends along to eat with him. Mrs. Haggerty's sister, Ms. Herink, was visiting from Seattle and also joined them. Keep reading, Raccoons!
Michael Dahl was one of the visiting authors who spoke with students during the author sessions. Thank you, Capstone, for sponsoring this amazing event!
