Friday Folder: April 22


Nothing like starting the school day off with some delicious pancakes!
Please join the Roosevelt community for breakfast on Friday, April 29.  Kids, families, and caretakers are welcome!  To avoid a rush at the start of school, we will have 3 seatings: 7:10 – 7:30; 7:30 – 7:50; and 7:50 to 8:10.  Cost is $4.50 in advance (credit) or $5.00 at the door (cash/check only). To prepay and reserve your seat, please click here:

Also, we need a lot of help to make this event run smoothly.  This opportunity is a good one to meet other Roosevelt families.  Fifth graders are welcome to help.  To sign up to help, please click the following link:

Finances for Both Kids and Adults 
Roosevelt parent Emily Guy Birken (mom to Ari and James) has a new book out. Stacked: Your Super Serious Guide to Modern Money Management is a humorous and light-hearted guide to finance, written with co-author Joe Saul-Sehy. Emily and Joe will be at the Wauwatosa library at 1:30 on Sunday, April 24 for a book talk and signing. At the event, you can expect great financial advice and a lot of laughter. The book itself is an excellent introduction to financial literacy for teenagers as well as a good primer for anyone who wants to know more about money.

Seating is limited, and the organizers are asking attendees to sign up via this link:
There will also be an event at the Bayshore Barnes & Noble planned for Saturday, April 23 at 1:00 pm if you can’t make the Sunday event. Details for that event here:

Here are a few posts written by  Emily Guy Birken about teaching kids about money. Check out the links below!
