    • Roosevelt students and community, here is your opportunity to increase school pride, community unity and stay safe. Please purchase a Roosevelt mask and help support all of the RHS extracurricular activities like ASB student government, band, drama and athletics. All of these departments and programs traditionally have provided our student body and community with such amazing leadership, performances and fantastic competitions. All of which help to increase the overall experience of our RHS students and community. Please support these extracurricular activities that are not able to do what they love best by purchasing a Roosevelt mask for yourself and loved ones. If you are able to, please purchase another mask for RHS students that may be in need. Thank you, stay safe and GO RIDERS!!
