3/12/21 Pep Assembly — Lottery Sign-Up

HEY RIDERS!! We are excited to have our first pep assembly for the 2020-21 school year. It will be the culminating event for the Winter Rumble Class Competition. Because of COVID guidelines, we can only have so many people attend. Each class will have a limited number of seats. To give all students the opportunity to participate, Student Council will be holding a lottery style selection.

If you are interested in attending the pep assembly, please complete the Winter Rumble Pep Assembly form NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 2021. Your name will then be put in a lottery for your class. Names of those selected to attend will be posted on the Student Activities window the week of March 8. All other students can attend the pep assembly virtually (link to be announced at a later time).

You and one TRHS friend may fill out ONE FORM to be part of the selection of students in the pep assembly. Both of you must be in the SAME GRADE.

BRANCHING OUT FOR MARCH, 2021

March 1, 2021

Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,

It is hard to believe that it has been a year since the pandemic affected the TRHS school community.   Fortunately, the  number of people who are vaccinated is increasing and infections are declining daily. We are hopeful that in these last few months we will all be able to close the school year on a positive note.  

Our graduation committee has been working on graduation plans for the Class of 2021, which is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 22, 2021.  Please click on the graduation link for more information.  

Prom, scheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2021, is another important event that we  have been working on.  The Junior Class Prom Committee, led by Advisor Christina Dreher-Rodeseheim with help from class advisors, Kelly Foreman and Tanya Titus, is working on three potential prom ideas while also waiting for specific guidelines from the local health department.  The Prom Committee invites both junior and senior students to get involved in the planning process.  Students wanting to help plan should join the Prom Google classroom where information on meetings and plans will be posted.  The Prom class code is:  4bhzc5s.  Currently, they are meeting on Tuesdays/Wednesdays at 2:45 p.m.  Remote students can join the Google meet (link in the classroom) at that time.

We sincerely thank our athletic department and all of our students, parents/guardians and coaches for putting together a winter sports season.  We know how frustrating it was at times, but everyone’s perseverance made for a successful winter sports season. Congratulations to junior Anya Ferner, who qualified for states in the diving competition and senior Chris LeSueur and junior Matt Richards, who both qualified for states in bowling.  We also congratulate the girls bowling team who had an impressive 11- 0 season and finished as Suburban League Champions.    

Chromebooks will be collected at the end of the year.  Please be certain to maintain your chrome book in good condition. If you are having an issue with your chromebook make sure you contact the chromebook line

Respectfully,

Dennis Love
