Dine & Donate Night in April


Grade Level Recess Fun!

Grade Level Recess – Buckets of Fun

The PTO would like to help our students have fun and Bee Fit during their outdoor play time. In an effort to provide a greater variety of play options during grade-level recess, we are assembling large “Recess Buckets” (one per grade) stocked with a variety of balls and outdoor toys to be used and shared during each grade-level recess.

The PTO will be purchasing a number of different items including balls for the GaGa Pit and some Skip It toys and thought we might ask the Roosevelt community to consider donating gently used (or new) items as well.

Suggested items include:
basketballs, soccer balls, beanbags for hopscotch, playground balls for 4-square, and jump ropes.

Large red collection bins are available outside of the main office.
Thank you!

Roosevelt Girl Scouts Spread Kindness

Girl Scout Collection for children at Lutheran General

Roosevelt’s 5th grade Girl Scout Troop #40560 is working towards their Bronze Award – the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can achieve.  This requires them to plan and execute a service project as a troop.  These girls have decided that they want to help other children.

Specifically, they are asking fellow Roosevelt students to donate items that can be assembled into activity bags to be distributed to children at Lutheran General Hospital.

They are asking for each grade to bring a different type of toy or item that can be added to the activity bag (all items must be new):

Kindergarten – Crayons or Colored Pencils
1st Grade – Toy Cars
2nd Grade – Playdoh or Silly Putty
3rd Grade – Coloring Books
4th Grade – Small Toy Balls or Stress Balls
5th Grade – Fidget Spinners or Rubik’s Cubes

A collection box has been placed outside of the main office at school.
The Girls Scouts will be collecting donations through March 22nd.

On behalf of Troop 40560, thank you for your support!


Cultural Awareness Week Update

We are delighted to see so many families submit pictures of your family heritage!  There is a wonderful display outside the school office, and there is still time to contribute a family photo if you would like to do so next week.  Also, the Cultural Awareness Week Flyer was updated to reflect that our Friday “dress up day” provides students an opportunity to wear an outfit, which represents their own culture/heritage.

Click here for a current flyer for Cultural Awareness Events!


Girls on the Run

The Girls on the Run program will once again be offered for Roosevelt 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade students.

Please view the attached flyer for more information.
