 Roosevelt Wants You!!!

“Roosevelt Middle School’s volunteer program exists to enrich our school Community. We welcome the many diverse talents our volunteers bring, and we honor their commitment to our students and staff.”

Ms. Samantha Boice, President PTSA


Richard Harris, Chairman Friends Of Roosevelt Foundation

How do schools benefit from volunteering?

Volunteers can:

•   Increase children’s motivation for learning

•   Provide positive role models for students

•   Allow teachers to provide more individual attention for each child

How do volunteers benefit?

•   Opportunity to serve as role models 

•     Make new friends among staff and other volunteers

•   Make a contribution to the community

You can do it at your own schedule, including:

•      Recurring opportunities during the school day, before and after school and Saturdays

•      A few times per school year on weekends or evenings

•      You can even take some tasks home and complete them at your own pace

Parents of Roosevelt School students typically staff and coordinate the volunteer programs. Beginning in 2013-14, the Roosevelt Volunteer Program is recruiting a growing contingent of non-parent community volunteers and coordinators. It is anticipated that this new approach will provide continuity to the volunteer program beyond the three-year exposure of middle school parents, and introduce interesting and unique volunteer opportunities beyond those typical in school volunteering.
