Roosevelt Weekly Parent Info
Hello to all Roosevelt Raccoons! Here are a few reminders for the week:
• The next Coffee with the Principal will be held Friday, January 19. Please come!! Drop your kiddos off at school and come to Cub Foods West for some great conversation and a nice, hot cup of coffee!
• OKAY Campaign! How's it going at home? Are you helping to teach and coach kiddos to say okay and do it right away? I know in my own household, we are really focused on this idea and why it's important. It takes PRACTICE to shape this behavior, so your support is really appreciated. A few students have completed their OKAY slips (the yellow ones that were mailed home) and returned them to the office. Keep working on this!
• Roosevelt Night At The Musuem: BACK by popular demand...it's Roosevelt's night at the Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota. When? Friday, February 2 from 6:00-8:00 PM. This event is FREE to all Roosevelt students and their families. This is not a drop-off event; students must attend with a parent or guardian. Come and play and have fun!
• Mark your calendar...the Roosevelt Family Reading Celebration & the Roosevelt Science Fair will be held on Friday, February 16. More details about exact times will be coming soon.
• Please register to attend Mankato Area Public Schools' Family Academy on March 5, 2018 held at Rosa Parks Elementary. Family Academy workshops give families tips, tools and strategies to help their children succeed in school. Food and childcare will be provided. Click here for current session descriptions. Register online or call 507-387-5501 with questions or for assistance.
• MyOn Blizzard Cup Reading Challenge has begun! Roosevelt has won this the past two years, and it would be great to win again! The challenge started December 26 and will continue until March 6. Any reading on MyOn, inside OR outside of school, counts in the Roosevelt total.
As always, thank you for supporting our work!
January Celebration Speaker
Roosevelt Raccoons were honored to host John Harrington, MSU Women's Hockey coach AND a player on the 1980 USA Olympic gold-medal winning hockey team, at our January celebration. He talked about the importance of listening, learning, finding a role model, working hard, and having passion. Wow! What a great opportunity for all!
Climb To Feed Kids
We did it!! The Roosevelt team did it--ten times climbing the stairs around Bresnan Arena to raise money for the Backpack Food Program. It was tiring and awesome at the same time!
Fifteen Minutes of Extra Recess
Ryan won 15 minutes of extra recess for his entire grade. Keep reading Raccoons!!
