The Roosevelt homecoming game is tonight (9/24/21)

against Lakeside at Nathan Hale High School.


5 p.m.!



REMINDER: Students must wear a mask when entering the building. Tip: Have extras stashed in your backpack so you’ll always have spares if you need them.

District laptops REQUIRED for state testing: If you are a student who uses a personal laptop, you will need to pick up a district laptop in order to take the state tests coming up. Please go to room 346 on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday to get one before testing begins in the first week of October. Also, please download and complete the Device Use Agreement found HERE and bring it with you.

Help for Roosevelt families in need: With the generous support of the University District Food Bank and financial donations from our community, the RHS Packs for Teens program serves Roosevelt’s families in need each week by delivering packs of food to families, distributing weekend packs to students and stocking a pantry. Sign up to volunteer by emailing Roosevelt High School PTSA Packs for Teens or signing up for a volunteer shift on Thursday afternoons or Friday mornings. Please help us to provide needed food, toiletries and cleaning supplies by shopping the pantry wish list or by donating. Need a pack? Please contact Erin Bailey, our academic intervention specialist, if your family or student would like support. Email:

Orchestra students: Save the date for the Orchestra Retreat, Oct. 7 to 9, in Seattle. Details will be posted to the RHS Orchestra Boosters website.

Our PTSA, in coordination with the Washington State PTA and National PTA, is strongly involved in advocacy on behalf of children and families, working together to amplify the voices of historically marginalized community members, including Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and LGBTQ+ , as well as families of all religious traditions, families experiencing homelessness or disabilities, and families with special education needs. We seek to provide opportunities for diverse groups to learn from each other, and design new programs to support everyone in our community.


The purpose of the Roosevelt High School Special Education PTSA is to support and build community among the parents of SPED students at RHS. We will be holding meetings as an opportunity for parents to share resources, learn from speakers about programs within the district and in the community.

Please send an email for more information.
