Updates for January 5 – January 8

Just a few more updates for this week:update

Handwriting After School Class…
Due to the elimination of handwriting from the state standards, students haven’t been taught handwriting for the past four years in California. Our PTA thinks that our students should still learn the fundamentals of handwriting so they have added a handwriting class to be offered after school for three weeks beginning this week.

The class begins on Tuesday, January 5 and will be held on Tuesdays & Thursdays after school for 3 weeks. Students must be in 3rd – 6th grade. There are currently 9 more spots available in the class. The fee is $40 which covers the cost of the instructor and all materials. Contact the school office at 369-5597 for more information.

Yard Duty Position Available…
Roosevelt currently has a yard duty position open. The hours are approximately 11:00am – 1:15pm. This is a paid position. If you are interested, please contact Gwen in the school office at 369-5597 or You will have to fill out an application with the district and get fingerprinted.

If you and your child are interested in this year’s Reading Fair, you can still pick up a starter kits! The starter kits include 1 tri-fold presentation board, 1 set of markers, glue, construction paper and Reading Fair instructions. Please have your student come to the office to pick up an application. All participating students must return a signed application to receive a starter kit.
