Teachers Appreciation Week 2023

Greetings, Roosevelt Families!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Roosevelt Moms!  I hope you all enjoyed the day with your families.  Even though I am always thankful for my mom and all she has done for me, it’s great to pay special thanks to amazing women.

THANK YOU to RooFriends and the RMS Community for your generosity in treating Teachers and Staff during Teachers Appreciation Week!  Thanks also to all the Donors who contributed to RMS Teachers’ DonorsChoose projects.  Matching Funds are still available to fulfill the remaining teachers’ projects.
