Tomorrow, June 9th, the open space behind Roosevelt will be closed for aeration and grass seeding. The field will need to stay closed to the public for at least two weeks (until June 23rd) to ensure that we have grounds that are usable and inviting for our school and whole community for the rest of the year! The playground will remain open to everyone during that time!

RCA is a part of Kids on Bikes and the Bike Library program for our older students. The students have enjoyed the Bike Library; however, many students who want to be part of this after-school program have no bike riding skills. All Kids Bike will allow us to teach our younger students how to ride so they can eventually be a part of the Bike Library. We are looking forward to growing a program that inspires a lifelong recreational activity. Find out how you can support this program here: https://support.allkidsbike.org/roosevelt-charter-school
If you are interested in daytime English classes for adults in June and July, you can still turn in the blue form next week before school ends on Wednesday.
