High Interest Day: Thursday, May 26
We are looking forward to High Interest Day this year. Although it will look a little different than previous years, this year’s High Interest Day will once again be filled with fun classes for Roosevelt students to explore.
Volunteers Needed: Have a little time to spare? We will need volunteers to make the day run smooth for our kiddos and activity leaders. Opportunities include: session helper (set up/chaperone/be an extra set of helping hands), volunteer/leader check in, event set up, beverage distribution, lunch distribution. We appreciate any time you can give to make this a fun, organized day! Sign up for one or more opportunities:

Activity Selection – PLEASE COMPLETE THE ONLINE FORM (see links below) FOR EACH OF YOUR STUDENTS BY MAY 13: Please see the attached descriptions for each grade level’s offerings. Please complete one form per child and help them rank their preferred activities. We do our best to give each student his or her top choices but this is not always possible based on presenter availability, session schedules, and other factors. JK students will enjoy gardening and amazing animals.

Fun Run Follow Up
Thanks for a great fun run today! The kids did a great job! It was so fun to come back together as a community and see the kids enjoying this event.
Special thanks to all our volunteers today for making this a success!!

Your child will be bringing home their lap card and a donation envelope today.
Please note, each card has an additional hole where the card was pinned to your child’s shirt, so the lap count will not match the number of holes in the card.

Donations are due May 20. Please collect any donations and write ONE CHECK to send *in the envelope that your child brought home today*.
