Dear Incoming Wildcat Families:


The PTA at Roosevelt is a great way to be involved, to get information, and to make a difference. We always encourage participation on the board and with the different support activities we provide. Additionally, if you have any programs or contributions you’d like to bring to or share at Roosevelt we are very open to new ideas and adventures. Importantly, even if you aren’t able to directly participate, consider sharing your email with us to get important PTA communication emails with information and opportunities. We also utilize several social media sites including a private Facebook group “Roosevelt Wildcat Parent Group”, a public Facebook page “Roosevelt Middle School PTA” and several Instagram sites. Please join Roosevelt on social media!
