Things like Staff Appreciation, Packs for Teens, Race and Equity committee and many other advocacy programs that are fought for at the state level.

$35 for an individual and $50 for two.
$12 for a student (sold separately online)
RHS PTSA BOARD
Every year the PTSA supports Staff Appreciation. We've brought hot lunches to school, hosted a holiday cookie exchange and served pizza during curriculum night. Although we can't do these same things this year, we will continue to provide support in fun new ways; snacks boxes at the school for staff who decide to come in, gift-card prizes for the holidays and meal vouchers to support staff on tough days.
PACKS FOR TEENS
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 and stocking a pantry. Additionally, we provide holiday baskets that include gift cards, jackets, socks, underwear, toiletries and food to our Roosevelt families. https://www.roosevelthsptsa.com/packs-for-teens
If your family would like support from Packs for Teens, please email

RACE AND EQUITY COMMITTEE
The Race & Equity Committee (REC) - a group of parents, students, and teachers - formed last summer as part of the PTSA’s Anti-Racism Resolution adopted in June. We are motivated and determined to help RHS be an inclusive environment where families, students, and teachers from all backgrounds are welcomed and valued. We want RHS to be a community in which kids thrive and become the best they can be. We are a working group, focused on three initiatives:
1. Education: Provide anti-racism educational experiences and conversation opportunities to encourage a common understanding of the issues among RHS families
2. Support for victims: Make the reporting process for harassment and abuse transparent and accessible to RHS students
3. Outreach: Amplify the voices of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, and provide opportunities for diverse groups to learn from each other
The REC is one of the great things the PTSA has going on. If you are interested in learning more or joining the REC, email email@example.com.

From its inception, PTA has been dedicated to advocating for the health and welfare of children and families. The RHS PTSA, in partnership with Washington State PTA (WSPTA) and National PTA, continues this legacy. We advocate at the school, district, state, and national levels for policies that have a positive impact on children and families. At school, RHS PTSA brings the voice of families to administrative and curricular decisions through its representatives on the RHS Building Leadership Team and the RHS Instructional Committee. At the state level, we vote on and support a legislative platform of issues that include school staffing, social and emotional health, school funding, and career and technical education. Our voices on these critical issues are only as strong as our membership numbers!
