Welcome Roosevelt Volunteers!

All volunteers for Anoka-Hennepin are required to complete, specific to each school and school year:

  • Volunteer Application form
  • Criminal Background Check (CBC) Release form, online
Both forms are located to left side of this page. Once both forms are completed and verified by Volunteer Service Coordinator (VSC) you will be cleared to come into the school and volunteer.
There is an additional approval process required for any volunteers:
  • going on any field trips
  • coaching or assisting with sports or activity clubs
  • working with money/fundraising for the school

By filling out these forms you are in no way obligated to volunteer at RMS but it does give you the opportunity to volunteer at RMS.

Volunteer Appreciation at Roosevelt Middle School 2013-14

Raise your glasses in the air and give three rousing cheers
To all of the extraordinary super volunteers
They always share their time with enthusiastic hearts
They appear from out of nowhere to do their special parts
Whenever there's a project or a task to be completed
You can always count on them, they never are defeated
Their smiles are genuine and their attitudes are winning
Surely they must be the ones who keep this old world spinning
So if there is a job to do- Don't shrink back in fear
Just seek out the expertise- of a Volunteer!
by Kitty Conners
