Roosevelt Yearbook – Strenuous Life
Students produce the Strenuous Life, Roosevelt’s annual yearbook. Open to any student by application and interview during their sophomore year. Taken as a class in the junior and senior years.
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!
*If your student is a senior and your family cannot afford a yearbook, please reach out to adviser Taylor Rainwater*

Community Service Hours Opportunity
Fellow Booster reps – my neighbor, Crystal Budd (her son, Jude, is a freshman playing lacrosse, different last name) is looking for volunteers on the weekends as well as this summer for three summer camps. (Jeff Brown – I think she’s already reached out to you direclty.)
A little background on the program from Crystal: we started AIM in October 2021 after a parent approached me asking if we would provide dance and camp opportunities for people with disabilities. I and three others formed the Adaptive and Inclusive Movement Initiative (AIM) from that conversation. In the Fall, we offered one Adaptive class to 10 students with various disabilities, and this spring, we are offering four adaptive classes and inclusive classes with ATD. In addition to adaptive & inclusive classes, we have started working partnerships with Bridge of Promises, Seattle Parks and Recreation, and The Haring Center for Inclusive Education at UW. Finally, this summer, we are offering adaptive summer movement camps for ages 12-25.
Our little program is rapidly growing, and we are very excited! We have found in our limited experience that volunteers are essential to our classes’ continued growth and success. I volunteer with the Sunday adaptive class, and it is honestly my favorite part of my week. I’m paired with the same student each week, so we have become comfortable working together, and I love how each time we are together, we learn a little more from each other. The great thing about volunteering with us is that volunteers need zero experience with dance or working with people with disabilities. We will guide them and provide training and gentle feedback.
If your athletes are looking for community service hours or if you know team parents who are looking for community service hours for students, please feel free to forward this opportunity. They can begin the process by registering on the website: Volunteer page
