SWEET TREAT! BACK FOR REAL!
After a hiatus in 2021, Sweet Treat is back on February 25th.

If you’re familiar – get that money ready and warm up your appetites.

If you forgot – remember, Sweet Treat is where we all have donuts together as a community (donut, juice/coffee, extra donut, etc) before school.

If you’ve never been – HEY! It’s exciting to have you as part of the community, join us, won’t you?

More details to come, but for now, mark your calendars for the morning of February 25!!

February 18th is Winter Walk to School Day! We will be celebrating by creating a walking school bus for the morning walk to school! This is a great opportunity to get some exercise, meet other Roosevelt families and walk with friends!

Community Closet
Wauwatosa School District’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) Council will open the district’s first-ever community closet! It will provide students and families in need with new coats/jackets, snow pants, boots, hats, gloves/mittens, laundry detergent, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, and other critical items.
Community members are encouraged to drop off the items listed above on Saturday, February 19, from 9 to 11 a.m., at Longfellow Middle School. There will also be bins inside each Wauwatosa elementary, middle, and high school on an ongoing basis, so please feel free to drop off items there after February 19!

Family Recess Supervision
Support the Roosevelt Staff and supervise students as they enjoy the new playground! Select as many slots as you’d like. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in with the office.

Please Note: Parent needs to be an approved volunteer through the Wauwatosa School District before they can start supervising/chaperoning recess. Volunteers can click on this link to access the volunteer application: https://www.wauwatosa.k12.wi.us/Page/408  Please be VERY careful when submitting the volunteer application. Make sure your first and last name are consistent (with your legal name) throughout the whole questionnaire. Sometimes phones and computers incorrectly auto-populate information and it can delay the background check process! We want to make sure you’re cleared in time for your volunteer opportunities!
