This Spring, Roosevelt students and families participated in a new book 'Fundraiser" from Books are Fun. This Book Blast event raised over $12,700 to get brand new books in every student's home. Every student earned ONE new book and some students received up to TEN new books. During this event, students earned cool prizes like cozy blankets and even little treasure chests stuffed with cash and treats! The Roosevelt library also earned close to $500 for new books. Thanks to the families and friends of Roosevelt students, this Book Blast was a big success!

Roosevelt families had Howie as a surprise guest at their Family Night on March 15th. Howie was sharing resources on immunizations, hours of Covid testing, and giving away coloring books.
Howie is a Border Collie from the new Health and Wellness Education (HWE) Center! The center is located at 331 N. 1st Street in Yakima. The mission of HWE is to provide YSD families with health guidance and support needed for the educational success of students. Some of the resources HWE offers include:
Physical and mental health care
We look forward to seeing where Howie shows up next to share health-related information for YSD families!
Congratulations to Roosevelt Elementary and STEAM specialist Amae Merrill for a fantastic and successful family night with STEAM! Over 500 students and their families experienced animal skulls and pelts, built rockets and paper chains, designed frames with marshmallows and spaghetti, learned about healthy teeth and salmon, got to code and make slime. If your elementary school would like to do a STEAM night, your STEAM specialist can make it real! Huge shout out to Roosevelt staff who all jumped in to present and support and Kudos to first year principal Cheryl Jordan who was a fantastic support!
