⚗️🔬⚛️ 👨🔬STEAM AT RMS, BY MR. LAPORTE! 👩🔬⚛️🌡️🧪
This week, we are excited to partner with a group from CIRM (California Institute for Regenerative Medicine). One of the CIRM Interns working with CSUSM will be partnered with our STEM Ambassador to help bring this week’s stem cell focused activity to the middle schoolers. CIRM Interns spend their days working full time in one of San Diego’s stem cell labs and part of their program experience is performing outreach into the K-12 schools. This will be their 2nd year partnering with us.

Low cost student internet
Cox Connect2Compete | Affordable Home Internet
Access to technology at home is critical to the quality of a student's education, yet many students in America lack internet access. That's why we're working to provide opportunities for families and students by offering low-cost internet to qualified households with the Cox Connect2Compete program.
Support the PTA!
PTA connects families, schools, and communities by providing programs and services at your child’s school. PTA is the nation’s largest volunteer-led child-advocacy association working to drive improvements in the education, health, and well-being of all children and families. When you are a member of PTA, you are an advocate for your child and for all children, and you are able to vote at Association meetings held twice a year, receive benefits by being a PTA member, and most importantly, support Roosevelt Students. You can also make direct donations to support grade-level grants, which provide funds for 6th-grade Greek Day, 7th-grade Safari Park field trip, and 8th events as well as other projects and programs. Please help support our programs and students! You can join by visiting this site: https://jointotem.com/ca/oceanside/roosevelt-middle-pta
