A few reminders so you can stay in the know:
~ ACES: If you know anyone, age 16+, who might be on the hunt for a GREAT job opportunity, please have them consider joining the ACES staff. Here's the link to the application process, or you can call the ACES office at 387-5501 to get more information.
~ Walk-A-Thon: The Roosevelt PTO plans to do our annual Walk-A-Thon fundraiser on Friday, October 15. We will kick off this event at school on Friday, September 24, so be looking for information to come home with your child TOMORROW. The is the PTO's ONE & ONLY fundraiser, and it's a simple, awesome event!!! Thank you, in advance, for your support!
~ Receipts = Cash for Roosevelt: When the cashier asks you if you want your receipt, say yes!! There are two very simple ways to raise money for Roosevelt Elementary using receipts!
Hy-Vee’s Cash 4 Kids program gives schools a percentage of the receipts (except Hy-Vee gas stations) collected throughout the school year. Start saving your Hy-Vee receipts and drop them to the office or send them with your students.
BoxTops for Education has changed over the last couple years; while there are still a couple random products with clippable boxtops, the program is almost all digital now. Download the App and begin scanning your grocery receipts. Pro-tip: scan all your receipts even if you aren’t sure you purchased a boxtop product, you might be surprised!

~ Masks: Just a friendly reminder that masks are required for anyone who enters our building. Should this be a concern, please email or call me. If you are a parent who is coming into the office for any reason, please be certain you are masked.
~ Substitute Teaching: Have you ever thought about being a substitute teacher? Our sub pool is quite limited this year, and we are on the hunt for interested individuals to consider this opportunity. A 4-year Bachelor's Degree is required, and you would need to obtain a substitute license, but we can help with that process. AND...if you only wanted to sub here at Roosevelt, and nowhere else, we could help to support this. If you have any inkling that you might want to do this, please reach out to me!!!
~ School Pictures: These are currently scheduled for during the school day on Friday, October 8. Here's the online link to order pictures. The school code is: FM370866. Paper copies will also be available in the office should you need/want that. Please have your child come to the office to get a paper copy if you prefer ordering that way.
Thanks for all your support in these first few weeks of school--your voice, your encouragement, your reinforcement of expectations all matter! Thank you!
