Roosevelt Weekly Parent Info

Hello to all Roosevelt families! A few reminders for the week:


Climb to Feed Kids: We are again going to have a Roosevelt team for this fundraiser for the Backpack Food Program. IF the Roosevelt community raises $1500, then four different Roosevelt folks will be taped to the wall...sounds exciting, huh??!!! Your child can bring in any cash donations to their teacher starting now, OR here's the link to donate online. Your support is appreciated!!!


• Rocky Time: Today we continued our theme of PERSISTENCE & SELF-DETERMINATION. We celebrated our mistakes, read an awesome book titled The Most Magnificent Thing, talked about strategies for sticking with something hard, and began learning about steps to reaching a goal.


• 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. Third graders can view school rankings by logging into myON. Find more information about this on the flyer or by going to http://www.finalfourminneapolis.com/read-to-the-final-four/


Parking: Take a look at the picture of Roosevelt below. Please refrain from parking on the street in the highlighted area. These are permit-parking areas only.


Have a great weekend, Raccoons!!
