For more information please contact Nicole Lynch at or Karen Berg Smith at

Chuck E Cheese Restaurant Fundraiser…
Thank you to the families that supported the restaurant fundraiser at Chuck E Cheese. We raised $313.81!

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.
