Scholastic Book Fair: 10/17-10/30
The Scholastic Book Fair is back! While the fair will be exclusively held online this year, we still plan on making it a fun experience for our kids. Features include:

  • Each student gets one free book! Choices will be made in the classroom for Cohorts A and B and Tosa Connected families will be contacted via mail. This is an option only because of your support during previous years. Thank you!
  • Roosevelt’s very own online store, with a large selection of titles, at the right price points
  • A Virtual Fair so your kids can still experience the book fair in 2020
  • Every dollar you spend will benefit our school directly (25% back in rewards to fund future fairs and more books for our classrooms and library)

We can’t wait to “see” you at the Fair!

Box Tops
Box Tops Fall submission deadline is approaching. There are two ways to participate in earning money for Roosevelt Elementary:

  • Clip Box Tops and turn them into your child’s classroom teacher OR mail them in yourself.  Click here for more information.

Eventually, Box Tops will be phasing out the “clip it” option, so if you have not already start scanning your receipts, it is an easy and convenient way to earn money for Roosevelt.
