Cultural Festival a Success
A big THANK YOU to our Cultural Connections teachers, instructional assistants, parents and guardians who inspired and nurtured so many wonderful sixth grade projects displayed at the Cultural Festival. Congratulations to our students who created an amazing array of thoughtful and meaningful research!
The Cultural Festival is important because it brings our Roosevelt community of students, families, teachers, and administrators together in an evening event celebrating students’ displays of their cultural and familial heritage.
The Cultural Festival is possible only through the efforts of many volunteers. Thank you to the following for their time and effort: Victoria Robinson, Rebecca Humble, Amanda Zublin, Elena Bogolyubova, and Olga Jeffryes.
A special thanks to all parents and guardians for the time and effort in supporting the success of our students at Roosevelt.
