After School Activities
The PTA and the Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department work collaboratively to provide after school enrichment classes for all children. These classes may include such subjects as science, art, Italian, French, Spanish, chess, computers and dance. A PTA committee periodically surveys families in an attempt to schedule interesting classes for the students. Flyers are sent home with class descriptions and registration procedures.
The Recreation Department provides coaches at each school for an After School Sports program for 4th and 5th grade students. Flag football and volleyball teams are organized in the fall and Basketball teams play during the winter months. Both boys and girls are encouraged to sign up for these sports. Check the weekly "Roosevelt Reporter" or call the Recreation Department for information.
After School Academy
The After School Academy is designed to help children meet their homework needs. Each session is facilitated by a faculty member. The academy meets three times a week from 3 pm - 4pm. If interested, please talk to your child's teacher.
Instrumental Music and Chorus
Instrumental music is available to 4th and 5th graders. No previous experience is necessary. Small group lessons for flute, clarinet, trumpet, baritone horn, trombone, French horn, alto sax and percussion are provided during the school day as a pull-out program. Lessons begin either the third or fourth week of school. Band rehearsals begin later and are scheduled before school. Chorus is provided during the school day to all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. In addition, the PTA sponsors a K - 2nd choral music program. Each year, in the BIS Auditorium, Roosevelt School presents a Winter Concert featuring all students, grades K – 5, and a Spring Concert featuring 3rd – 5th grade students. Please note concert dates in the Roosevelt School Calendar, page 23.
The Student Council is a vital activity, teaching students how to be responsible citizens. Student representatives are elected from each class to serve one semester. The Student Council represents all students and encourages them to get involved in projects that enhance the school environment. Student Body officers are elected in September by second through fifth grade students.
Students may be involved in the following types of activities:
Ball Monitor, Classroom Monitor, Attendance Monitor, Project Wee Care, Recycling Activities and Fire Marshall.
