This service is only available during the school year, September through June. We have copies of the Strenuous Life for many, but not all of the years from 1923 through 2022.

Why is our yearbook 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!
