Good Evening Roosevelt Families,

The Japanese Friendship Garden’s Cherry Blossom Festival in Balboa Park is a BIG opportunity for the RMS Community to raise much-needed funds for education enrichment programs for our Students and Staff. Please volunteer for the RooFriends Cherry Blossom Festival Parking Fundraiser this Saturday and Sunday (March 11 & 12, 11AM – 2PM).  Just 12 volunteers could earn thousands of dollars. RooFriends goal is to raise at least $15,000 by June 2023! Thank You!!
