FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
Dear Roosevelt Community! I hope you had a wonderful summer! We are thankful to begin this year
familiar with our surroundings. Spending an entire school year in the new facility helped us learn the best ways to use this space. We are finally unpacked! Now we embark on more change … a new schedule. As you may know, our staff developed a new schedule to support an increase in science minutes, a more equitable PE and health experience, and a more financially prudent outlook (to support similar class sizes). This will come with challenges as well. While we were able to emphasize some good things and make some positive changes, we certainly will need to get comfortable with less elective choice. This is a big shift that will be a challenge for many; however, we are hopeful the benefits of the change make sense to our community.
We encourage families to visit the school website often for current information and to sign up for eNews, the weekly electronic newsletter.
The website also lists information about fundraising and volunteer opportunities. Roosevelt values family support through donations, volunteering and academic assistance. EEF donations help Roosevelt to continue programs that allow for student choice and academic exploration; so thank you to all who support our school through EEF donations. Volunteers are also critical to the supportive environment and academic excellence at Roosevelt, so please consider either volunteering at school or assisting your student in achieving greatness.
Please attend Roosevelt’s Ice Cream Social in September so we can become reacquainted. We look forward to seeing you soon.
