Friday Folder: April 3

Year Book Orders
Yearbook order forms were scheduled to be sent home Friday, April 3rd with students. Due to Virtual Learning, 2019-2020 Yearbook orders will be taken online through Visual Image Photography (VIP) only.

PTA Board Treasurer Position
The PTA is seeking a new Treasurer with relevant experience for the 2020-2021 school year. Please email rooseveltpta@gmail.com if you are interested or reach out to any board members if you see us around school.

Spring Fling
Spring Fling is scheduled for May 28th. As things have escalated with this pandemic, it seems increasingly unlikely that Spring Fling will happen, at least in the traditional fashion. With many small (and larger) businesses struggling, we do not feel comfortable asking for donations. Instead, we would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the businesses that have been regular supporters of Spring Fling in the past. Please consider supporting these businesses during this time.

Here are some of our loyal local donors for Spring Fling, with a focus on those businesses that are temporarily closed or have had to modify their business model due to current circumstances. Purchasing gift cards would be a great way to show our appreciation to teachers/staff for all of their hard work and flexibility in providing virtual learning for our kids.

Pop Up Food Pantry
Thank you to all who have donated to the Pop Up Food Pantry!

PLEASE utilize it! Even if you believe there are others more in need than your family. It is there for all of us. If you are having a hard day, are low on food and a box of mac and cheese will bring normalcy to your child and take some pressure off of you, grab it!  Please spread the word to other Roosevelt families who may not be aware it exists.

ANYONE PLACING OR TAKING FOOD IS REQUIRED TO PRACTICE THE CURRENT HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE!  We will do our best to monitor the cabinet to make sure there is food available.  If any person finds the cabinet empty, please notify us at rooseveltpta@gmail.com.  PLEASE do not place any perishable or fresh foods in the food pantry.  Non-perishable food items in high demand include: applesauce and ready-to-eat meals and snacks (soup, canned ravioli/pasta, granola bars, chips, etc.)

Pancake Breakfast CANCELED
The Pancake Breakfast, which was scheduled for April 17 is canceled. We are disappointed that we are unable to have this fun event for the Roosevelt community and look forward to its return next year.

High Interest Day
High Interest Day is scheduled for May 15 this year. We are currently having discussions and reevaluating this event. We will keep you posted with any changes or cancellations as they come up.
