    2017 Yearbook Strenuous Life - ORDER NOW!

    Yearbook questions can be addressed to Janine Magidman at jtmagidman@seattleschools.org.

    Ever wonder why our yearbook is called Strenuous Life? Well, our namesake-Teddy Roosevelt-in April 1899 said, "I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph.”

    Roosevelt High School has published a yearbook annually since 1923. Our award-winning full-color publication is distributed in June, to those who order their copies now! Purchase yours:

    • Now through the end of September as part of your Activity Card Combo for $90 (THE BEST DEAL!) Buy this on Roughrider Day or in the bookroom during lunches and before school. Check the bookroom schedule for hours.
    • After September: Purchase the yearbook separately for $60 in the Bookroom in October or March during both lunches and before school, or contact Janine Magidman after school hours in room 239 or by email. Watch the bulletin for the weeks when sales are happening.
    • SUBMIT PHOTOS for the yearbook to www.hjeshare.com School Code: HJ07136

    Because of our costs and low price this year there will be no additional discounts. However, you can pay for your yearbook in installments. Contact H. Poulias in the bookroom for details: hpoulias@seattleschools.org.

    We sold over 1200 copies of the 2015 yearbook; they were sold out before school was out! Make sure you pre-order and pay in full by April 1st to receive a book on distribution day in June.
