Due to MAP testing on May 12, the book fair hours will be limited to when the library is able to open after testing. Thanks and Happy Reading! ~Mrs. Anne Williams

Incoming 6th Grade Orientation Nights: We look forward to meeting all current 5th graders who will attend Roosevelt next year at our upcoming orientation nights! The evenings will begin at 6:30 pm and end at 7:30 pm. All attendees should report to the Lass Auditorium. (The evening will include a presentation in the auditorium, a self-guided tour to explore the building, and stations set up in the cafeteria for questions).
Because we will be following safety protocols and limiting attendance to the student and two adults (Parent/Guardian), we ask that the students from the listed schools attend only on their specified night!
• Thursday, May 6: Students and parents/guardians from Audubon, Bryant, Carver, Fulton, Irving, Lincoln, and Marshall should attend.
• Tuesday, May 11: Students and parents/guardians from Eisenhower, Prescott, Sageville, and Table Mound should attend.
• Thursday, May 13: Students and parents/guardians from Hoover and Kennedy should attend.
Parochial school students who live in the Roosevelt boundary and will attend Roosevelt next year may attend one of the nights. Parents/guardians of students coming from parochial schools should also contact the Guidance Office at 552-5013. Thank you!

This is a great opportunity to learn about the Mustang vocal program, ask questions, and meet your future director. Mrs. Roe will also listen to you sing “Count the Stars” and give feedback so you can experience what it’ll be like under her direction. ~Mrs. Toups
