Order the 2018-19 Roosevelt Yearbook using this link. Yearbook ID: 368671or look up by state and city of Mankato. Order By: Thursday, March 21st. 5th graders get a free yearbook!!! If they want the add-on, they should pay by cash or check once the flyers/envelopes come home (which will be soon). Make sure they indicate their grade on their paperwork.


Box Tops & Milk Moola: Please remember to bring in all Box Tops and Milk Moola by the end of February. The submission date for Box Tops is March 1st. The next submission date isn't until November so we don't want any to expire over the summer. Also please send in any Milk Moola. Kwik Trip is discontinuing this program so all submissions must be in by March 31st. The PTO thanks everyone for their collections!


Rocky Time: Today we continued the theme of RESPECT & KINDNESS. We read a fantastic book about kindness and wrote notes to people who have done kind things for us. Ask your child about this!


No School Friday, March 8 due to conference preparation day for teachers. Conferences will be held on March 11, March 14 and March 19. The link to sign-up for conferences will be set to you tomorrow, March 1. Be looking for this coming your way!


5th Grade Parents: Please consider attending a DMMS PTA meeting yet this spring. The next meeting is March 18 at 6:00 at DMMS. This would be a great way to bridge the gap between elementary and middle school.
