Reminders & Updates!

Since this is a short week, here’s another reminder for events this week, plus a few updates:

Coffee with Principal Girardi…cups_of_coffee
Come and enjoy a cup of coffee with the principal on Wednesday morning! Parents are invited to come and meet with Principal Girardi over a cup of coffee and snacks at 8:00am in Room 1 (the room across the hall from the school office). Hear first hand about district and school news, talk about any issues or concerns you may have or just come for the coffee. This is also a great opportunity to meet other Roosevelt parents! This is a very casual meeting so if you can only drop in for a few minutes, you are still welcome to attend. Spanish translation is available for those that need it. If you have a younger child, you are welcome to bring him/her. Tell a friend!

This class is open to 4th -8th graders who are Native Speakers only.  Grammar usage and writing will be emphasized.  The 8-week session will run through early March and the cost is $40 per student.
