MAZE Day Information

NOTE: We need MAZE Day Volunteers!
If anyone can volunteer on either MAZE Day, your help would be greatly appreciated! Older students are also welcome to help with selling spiritwear, marking off forms or answering questions. Spanish speaking volunteers are needed as well.  If you can help, please contact or call the school office.

What are the correct dates for the MAZE days?maze
There was a typo in the letter from Principal Girardi in the MAZE day packet. The correct dates are:
August 20 – for students with last names A-L from 5:00-7:00pm
August 22 – for students with last names M-Z from 4:00-6:00pm

Who needs to attend MAZE day?
All Roosevelt parents, not just Kinder and new families, are asked to attend. This year Roosevelt also has a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) class for young 5’s. TK parents do not attend MAZE day but are more than welcome to come and find out about volunteering, enrichment programs and ways to help fundraise.

I can’t come to my scheduled MAZE day. Can I go to the other one?
Yes. If the MAZE day date that was scheduled for your last name doesn’t work for you, please come to the other one.

I can’t come to either MAZE day. What do I do?
If you can’t attend either MAZE day, please come in to the office on Monday morning before school starts.

I didn’t get my MAZE day packet. What do I do?
The MAZE day packets were mailed to Roosevelt families on Wednesday, August 14, so check your mailbox for a big white envelope. There will be blank forms available for you at both MAZE days, so please come even if you didn’t receive a packet in the mail.

Do I have to be at MAZE day for the two hours that it’s open?
No. The scheduled times are just a window. You can come any time during the scheduled time.

What do I need to bring with me?
You need to fill out all of your forms before MAZE Day. (If you are having trouble with any of your forms, assistance will be provided during both MAZE days.) In addition to your completed forms, bring your checkbook, credit cards or cash for the enrichment fund and spirit wear. Once you’ve turned in all of your completed forms, you will receive your child’s teacher/class assignment and school supply list.

Why don’t the MAZE day packets go out earlier?
The paperwork doesn’t go out until just before school starts for many reasons:

1. The school office is closed and the staff is on vacation until the second week of August.
2. The office doesn’t receive the final enrollment list until the weeks before school starts, so even if the office was open, they wouldn’t have a complete list of addresses
3. PTA volunteers have to submit pieces for the packets
4. Everything has to be translated and then copies must be made.
5. One packet per student (almost 600 this year) has to be assembled by Gwen and Haley
6. A mailing that big has to be scheduled with the Post Office by Gwen

The packets cannot be mailed out much earlier than they are because it wouldn’t be possible given the above timetable and logistical constraints.
