Roosevelt Fun Run Volunteers Needed: 10/4
Woo hoo!! It’s that time of the year again! The Roosevelt Fun Run is the school’s largest (and most fun!) fundraiser! While raising money for the school, it is also an opportunity for every student to share their school spirit, work on their physical fitness, raise money, and contribute directly to the school by raising money for field trips, cultural initiatives, and many other PTA programs. Give the kids a boost and help raise funds for our school! We need your help with tracking laps for 2-4 students and other duties. Feel free to volunteer for as many class times as you want. In order to be guaranteed to be paired with your student(s), sign up by October 2nd, and please enter your student’s name in the comment section when signing up. We welcome half day and all day volunteers, too. Click here to volunteer: Roosevelt Run Run Volunteer Sign Up.

Veterans Day Ceremony: 11/11
We are pleased to host our biennial Veterans Day Ceremony this year on November 11, at 9 a.m. During this school-wide gathering, we honor the men and women who have served in the military. Friends and family are invited to join us.

A highlight of the ceremony is a slide show featuring family members of Roosevelt students who are veterans – grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, siblings, etc. If you have previously submitted photos, your student will be bringing home a copy of your most-recent slide. Please let me know if you have any changes to the slide.

If you have not previously submitted photos, but would like to have your family members who are veterans featured in the presentation, please submit photos (electronic is preferred) to Peggy Paar at paarpe@wauwatosa.k12.wi.us by Monday, October 28. Please indicate the NAME of the person featured and his/her relation to your child. If you are unable to submit an electronic photo, you can send in a hard copy (labeled) and we can scan/return to you. (Electronic is preferred to ensure you can preserve your cherished photos. Sometimes items do not transfer well in backpacks).
