2017 Roosevelt V-Show is Coming!

2017 Roosevelt V-Show is coming!
“Dr. D and His Reality TV”

SIGN UP EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 22, 2016!!!
The V-Show is an entertaining stage show performed entirely by our kids and every student is welcome to participate!
K-4 students will be placed in a group (by grade) and perform a song and dance number on stage.
5th graders can choose to have a speaking role in the comedy sketches or work behind-the-scenes as technical support.
So…What exactly am I committing to if I sign my child up to participate?

Parent Participation/Volunteering:
When you sign up your child to be in V-Show, you will be asked to support the production in some capacity.  Not all volunteers sing and dance (although, that is super fun).  There are SO many other ways to help!
Check out the different volunteer options listed on the registration form by clicking on one of the Sign Up buttons below.

Rehearsals:
As you might expect, there are rehearsals.  The dates are listed below.  More specific practice times (typically 45 minute time slots) are assigned as we get closer to the show.
This is a fantastic carpooling opportunity!

Costume Fee:
There will be a costume fee (maximum $25).  You will be asked to pay this directly to your child’s coach later.

Showtime:
V-Show weekend is a busy one for sure with 4 shows in 3 days.  However, K-4 students are not expected to stay for the duration of the show.  Groups are assigned specific drop-off and pick-up times (typically 30 minute slots) based on when they take the stage.
And…now that you know all of that,
you’re ready to sign up!

PTO Thanks Linda Mirza

We were thrilled to have Ms. Mirza join us at the Roosevelt PTO General meeting on Wednesday, November 16, 2016.  She gave a great presentation on what she does at Roosevelt and about some of the wonderful programs to help children learn and grow with respect to their emotional and social intelligence.  Ms. Mirza also touched on the difficulties of walking the balance between helping your children navigate social situations and letting them “figure it out” on their own.  If you were unable to attend, please take a look here for her presentation.

Thanks to all who joined us at the meeting!
