Back to School Family Dinner Dance…
Come and join us for our annual Dinner Dance on Friday, September 19 at 5:30pm!  Tickets cost $5 per person and include dinner (lasagna, salad, rolls, dessert and a drink) and dancing to a DJ for the evening.  Tickets need to be purchased in advance. Please fill out the white form that came home to get on the entry list or put the following information on the front of an envelope along with your payment:  the number of tickets needed, your child’s name and classroom number. Make checks payable to Roosevelt PTA or send cash in a sealed envelope with your child to the school office. Please Note: 5th grade families are being asked to help out with this event.

Spirit Wear…
All sizes of Roosevelt spirit wear will be available the week of September 21. Those that pre-ordered spirit wear will be notified when your order is available for pick up. Spirit wear may be purchased in the school office. Please be aware that the office is quite busy at the start of each school day and at dismissal, so please be patient with our office staff.

World’s Finest Chocolate…
This is our school’s biggest fundraiser of the year and helps to pay for so many programs offered throughout the year, so we really need parent support! If every family sold just 1 box of chocolate, our school would earn almost $20,000 which would cover the cost of art or almost 2 Chromebook carts.
Please note: Once you sign out a box of chocolate, you are responsible for the full cost of the box. Partially sold boxes cannot be returned to the office! If you are having trouble selling your entire box, PLEASE come by the school office – there may be other families that are willing to purchase some of your chocolate to sell and you can be matched up with those families.

Win an iPad Mini!…
You can still turn in your $150 donation to the Roosevelt Enrichment Fund to have a chance to win an iPad Mini! The raffle will be held at the November PTA meeting.

Checks can be made out to Roosevelt PTA. The PTA also accepts credit cards. Please stop by the office or send your pledge forms in an envelope to school with your child.  Anyone that gives $150 will get a special green t-shirt that your child may wear as uniform, a gift bag and a chance to win an iPad Mini! (If you have turned in your $150 and have not received your raffle ticket, green shirt or bag, please contact the school office.)
