Dear Students and Parents:

I’d like to take a moment to welcome you back to what is anticipated to be another incredible year at Roosevelt Elementary School!  As you know, Roosevelt has gone through significant changes over the last few years and continues to make progress towards our school-wide goals. We anticipate this year to be even more successful than the last and look forward to filling each classroom with dedicated professional staff, and students, with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is truly an honor and a privilege to be apart of a community where all stakeholders strive to build positive relationships that support social and academic growth while acknowledging the many accomplishments of our students. As we enter into the 2019-2020 school year, we encourage all members of our school community to get involved and play an active role on our team as we continue to Rebuild Roosevelt.

During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to bring welcomed changes with our ongoing construction projects, new staff, additional supports and services, community events and rigorous academics.  The opportunities for success and growth are endless as we create and implement programs that help foster well-rounded, educated students.  We continue to emphasize our extra-curricular programs that include; Music, Art, after-school athletic programs, a Home-School Association, PBIS events, field trips and a functional library.  In order for students to participate in these wonderful opportunities, we ask that they accomplish 3 things; Good Grades, Good Attendance, and Good Behavior.  Additionally, we encourage parents to get involved in their child’s education by supporting and encouraging compliance with our PBIS “Give Me Five” Model which expects students to be respectful, responsible, safe, organized and a problem solver.

Overall, we look forward to a positive and productive year together!  Please know that we highly value communication between home and school here at Roosevelt and encourage you to connect with Roosevelt staff via ClassDOJO. Communication through the platform will allow for parents/guardians to stay up to date with your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events happening in our school community.  All in all, your support and collaboration is crucial as it plays an integral role in the success of our students. Here’s to an EPIC school year as we work together to REBUILD ROOSEVELT!
