RMS Wildcat Weekly

November 1, 2019 Information for our Families

Happy Friday!

Greetings Wildcat Families!

First off, thank you to all our Wildcats for a great week! And thank you to PTA for hosting an awesome Halloween Costume Contest at lunch yesterday! The costumes were so creative, and our students and staff had a blast! Thank you also to PTA for coordinating with CNS to host a Fear Factor Taste Test Challenge. Our students received some nutrition education while sampling healthy food options, which is a great balance for the candy many students probably consumed yesterday! We appreciate our volunteers and their dedication to our Roosevelt community.

Fall Parent Teacher Conferences: Parent/Teacher Conferences are taking place on Tuesday, November 12 and Thursday, November 14. Both of those days will be minimum days to accommodate the parent teacher conferences.

The online registration window to schedule a conference will be open by the end of the day on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5. There is limited availability for conferences, so don’t wait to schedule. Step-by-step instructions are provided after you open the following link:


Attendance: Attendance is key to student success! Please encourage your student to attend school every day and arrive on time. Remember, absences must be cleared within 72 hours (3 school days) after student returns to school. We also appreciate when you schedule dental/doctor appointments outside of the school day to avoid instructional interruptions.

Safety Reminder: Parents, please remind your students to use the crosswalk when arriving or leaving school. The heavy traffic makes it unsafe for students because drivers may not see them as they cross the street.

Daylight savings is this weekend; Sunday, November 3rd. Please make sure your students are well rested this weekend so that it’s easier for them to adjust to the change.

Health office: Due to the continued warm weather, please send a refillable water bottle with your student daily. Thank you to all the parents/guardians who have been providing proof of updated immunizations.

Our award-winning Wildcat yearbook staff is currently taking pre-orders for the 2019-2020 yearbook at 20% off the end-of-the-year price! Support our school by purchasing a yearbook through the front office, our RMS webstore, or www.jostens.com! Click here to see our flyer.

Counseling Corner!

We are very excited to announce our first RMS Career Fest that will be held on November 12th & 14th from 8:30-11:30am. On these days, students will have an opportunity to hear from local professionals in different careers and learn about how to prepare for their future. We are still in need for guest speakers, so if you or someone you know you like to volunteer to speak to our students about your career, please contact Nancy Licona or Cory Way for more information.

If you notice that your student could use a little extra help, our B.L.A.S.T. (Boost Learning After School Tutoring) is now open! B.L.A.S.T. aims to help students succeed in their classes in a fun and supportive environment after school. There is a maximum of 35 students allowed per classroom, so come on over after school before spots will up! Tutoring takes place 3:15pm - 4:15pm. Click here to take a look at the BLAST schedule.

Roosevelt has over 20 clubs that take place during lunch and after school. Most of our clubs are open and students can show up to any meeting. For a list of clubs being offered this year CLICK HERE. If there is a club your student wants to start that we don’t already have, they can come get an application from the counseling office.
