RMS Boys Soccer Team: Runner-Up in the SDUSD MS Athletics Boys Western Division

Greetings, Roosevelt Families.

It was great to see our RMS Boys Soccer Team compete in the SDUSD MS Athletics Boys Soccer championship game on Saturday.  I am proud of their effort and sportsmanship.  Congratulations on a wonderful season!  We will display the Runner-Up plaque in our trophy case in the school office.

Important Announcement from our PHE Coaches: 

Please remind your children to make sure to lock their backpacks and valuables in the locker room. In both locker rooms thefts have occurred recently. Students should not leave their belongings unlocked and avoid the  risk.  If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your child’s PHE teacher.
