Here are some good ways to find used children’s books:
* Look for books around the house that are not being used anymore or you have outgrown.
* Check neighborhood garage sales for used children’s books.
* Ask grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends if they have any books they could donate.
* Take a weeks allowance to a thrift store. Buy a few used books and feel good about giving to others.
Thanks for your support! The drive will run Monday, April 10th – Friday, April 28th.

This year’s Daddy Daughter Dance had a pink and yellow “under the big top” theme! Roosevelt’s favorite DJ spun great dance tunes and the dance floor was packed! The meal included hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, and pretzel bites. Dessert was mini pink velvet cupcakes and donuts loaded with colorful sprinkles! The girls could also take as a favor pink cotton candy or popcorn! What a fun night!
Thank you to our Daddy Daughter Dance Committee and a special thanks to our committee chairs Heather Moore and Palma Voutiritsas!
Have your daughter grab her favorite party dress and come out for a fun night of dancing under the big top!
D.J. and dancing, food and more!
Tickets are now on sale here!

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

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!
Roosevelt’s Sock Drive was a huge success! Pete’s Sack Lunches was impressed with the number of socks our kids brought to school and said to say Congratulations to the children and their families!
