As you might know, Roosevelt Elementary’s biggest annual fundraiser, Spring Fling, was cancelled due to this unprecedented time of COVID-19.
Why does this matter?
Every year, the Spring Fling fundraiser generates nearly 77% of Roosevelt’s annual PTA budget.
These donations provide experiences for all of our students over and above what the school’s general budget provides.
A dedicated art teacher, 1-to-1 devices, and software licenses are not provided at other schools.
These unique opportunities might not continue without your support… we need additional funding to maintain the existing level of experiences at Roosevelt!
What does this mean for Roosevelt?
The good news is that Roosevelt has very responsibly managed finances.
Yet, we still need to raise at least $25,000 to make up a portion of what is usually raised from Spring Fling.
With the recent 5% public education budget cuts, the Spring Fling committee and Roosevelt PTA have been considering what we could or should do to help make up this difference.
We are hoping your generosity can help!
How can I support Roosevelt?
With that, we would like to announce the 2020 Roosevelt Elementary Online Paddle Raise!
To help us meet our fundraising goal of $25,000, please consider making a donation to Roosevelt in-lieu of attending Spring Fling.
Every dollar donated will go to directly to Roosevelt Elementary to support the continuation of music, art, library, and technology programs/licenses at our school!
What better way to say thank you to our amazing teachers than to help fund their classrooms and our wonderful school programs?
How do I make a donation?

- MICRON employee in the family? Micron is currently doing a 2:1 matching on donations. A $50 donation made by a team member through the Micron Gives portal = $150 to the Roosevelt PTA. It is all set up if you search for Roosevelt Elementary PTA. It quickly adds up! One generous Roosevelt family just gave a $200 donation which equaled $600 after Micron matching. Thank you Micron and thank you Roosevelt families!
We would like to thank those who have already opted to donate their Spring Fling ticket purchase to the cause. We appreciate your generosity.
