Roosevelt Board Report…
Each school is scheduled to make a presentation to the School Board once every 2 years. On February 10 at 7:00pm, it’s Roosevelt’s turn to present to the School Board. Parents and students are welcome to attend to hear about what Ms. Girardi has planned for Roosevelt and to show your support for our school and teachers. The presentation should last about 30 minutes.

Too Busy to Clip those BoxTops?…
Well, consider this: Last year Roosevelt earned $917.40 from BoxTops. This year we’ve already earned $766.70! Please remember to keep collecting BoxTops all year. You can wait for a BoxTops contest, or turn them in to your child’s teacher or the office at any time during the year.

Parent Volunteers Needed…
We’re still looking for parents to work with the different grade levels and chair events because many of our current event chairs will be graduating out of Roosevelt with their student this year or next. Events are assigned to grade levels for the work, but we need people that are willing to direct the volunteers.

The PTA is looking for officers for next year – Secretary, President, Treasurer, etc. All positions will be termed out this year by the current board.  (Positions may be shared by more than one person.) Please contact Principal Girardi if you are interested in any position by calling the office at 369-5597 or

And finally, we need help with our school’s blog and Facebook account. You can decide your level of help – taking pictures in classrooms to be posted on the blog and Facebook page or writing a weekly update once per month.

Anyone interested in any of the above opportunities should contact the school office.

School Funding Survey…
The new school funding formula (LCFF) by the state requires input from community members for allocating money to programs in the district to better serve students. Please take a few minutes before February 23 to give your input by taking a survery at
