Which state holds a state wide Reading Fair competition for students in grades Pre-K – 12th each year?
a. New Mexico
Outdoor Education & Yosemite…
5th & 6th grade families are asked to please turn in their payments for this year’s Outdoor Education and Yosemite weeks. Payments may be turned in to the school office. Checks and credit cards are accepted.
In addition to the ice cream truck that has parked next to Schaeberg Library every afternoon at dismissal time, there is now an ice cream cart at the Schaeberg gate. If you are giving your child money for the Snack Shack, they may be using it to buy from one of the two vendors on the street. If you would like to make sure that your child only buys snacks from the Snack Shack, you can purchase Raccoon Bucks that are acceptable currency for any item at the Snack Shack. Raccoon Bucks are available for sale at $1 each in the school office.
All sizes have been restocked and are again available for sale in the school office. If you’re stopping by the office in the morning or just before afternoon dismissal to purchase spirit wear, please be patient with Gwen and Rosie. There is always a lot going on in the office during those times, so it may take a while for them to get the chance to retrieve the items for you from the storage room. Also, if you are paying cash, please have exact change – the office is not allowed to hold cash to make change. Checks should be made out to Roosevelt PTA. You may also pay by credit card.

Trivia Question Answer…
The correct answer is b. Mississippi! Every public school in Mississippi holds a Reading Fair competition. The winners from each school then move on to a district wide competition, then a county wide competition and finally a state wide competition.
As far as we know, Roosevelt is the ONLY school in California that holds a Reading Fair competition! Last year, we had some pretty great entries, so everyone is really excited for this year’s competition.
Please come to our Pizza & Prep Night on Tuesday, December 2 at 6:00pm in the Cafeteria to find out more about this year’s Reading Fair (to be held on January 13). If you sign up to participate in this year’s Reading Fair, you will receive a free tri-fold board and a set of art supplies!
