About the PTO

REEF's Mission

REEF is a nonprofit PTO dedicated to raising money from parents and the community to support the growing needs of our students, teachers and staff. Our mission is to fund positions, programs and materials not paid for by the district or state in a way that improves the educational experience for every child at Roosevelt.


REEF Funded Programs and Instructors

Through a joint effort with the teachers, principal, parents, and REEF, Roosevelt sponsors curriculum specialists at all grade levels. REEF also supports Read with Roosevelt, cultural arts, the science fair, arts education and more. Several self-funded programs are also administered by parent volunteers for the benefit of our students: Fall Ball, Carnival, Spirit Days, Yearbook, Directory, and the After School Enrichment Program (ASEP).

Monthly Board Meetings

Meetings are generally held on the second Monday of each month at 6pm in the library. Attending the first REEF meeting, when the budget is discussed, is the best way to learn more about the special programs and events that are paid for by REEF. Free child care and translation is available at every REEF meeting. Please join us and participate! Check our calendar for an up to date schedule.

REEF Members

Every parent, guardian, teacher, and staff member registered to Roosevelt is a Member of REEF. Members vote on the election of the board members and the approval of the annual budget. Members have other rights as described in the REEF Bylaws.

REEF Board of Directors

The membership votes annually in the spring on the election of the Directors. The Directors (a.k.a. Board Members) oversee the day-to-day operation of the PTO guided by the interests of our families, staff, and community.
