Roosevelt School News
A Message From The Principal and Assistant Principal
Greetings, RMS families!
We hope you enjoyed a spectacular spring weekend as we head into cooler temperatures and rain the rest of the week. The sunshine certainly provides the promise of spring and rainy weather reminds us– we’re in school for seven weeks more!

As the midterm mark approaches, this is an excellent time to sit down with your student and go through Canvas, looking for any missing assignments and upcoming due dates. Next Friday, May 6 is a mid-term planning and grading day for teachers and many teachers will have due dates prior to that point this week and next. After next Friday, we have six short weeks left and we encourage your student to hold fast with resilience and patience in the month and a half ahead!

Often as we approach the end of the year, we see student behaviors begin to escalate as we reach a saturation point. We’ve only seen mild evidence of this in the last month and appreciate student, staff and family awareness about the potential. In part, we credit the work our teachers are doing in House to support students in being upstanders. We honor and appreciate students not waiting idly by if something is happening in our school community that is unacceptable or unsafe. Last week in House, students shared examples of how they have been upstanders this year and how others have supported them. Our work on this topic will tentatively culminate in an assembly in House next Thursday, May 5 where we will honor those stories and students who choose to make a difference for the benefit of others. We are really proud of our students persevering through all they have in the past two years and look forward to a strong finish to the school year.

One of the hallmarks of a school year at RMS are regularly scheduled Activity Nights. Last Friday, we finally were able to enjoy a fun time together after school hours with a record student turn-out of over 400 students at Activity Night– ? of our students–wow! Students sang karaoke, won prizes at Bingo, danced, ate pizza and generally made merry after a two-year hiatus. We truly had a wonderful event and hope your student had fun! Our 8th grade students have both Promotion and a dance to look forward to in June– more on that coming up in a few weeks.

We wish you a calm and focused week ahead … as always, please do not hesitate to reach out for any reason– thanks!
Our best,
Courtney and Mike

State Testing Coming Up
Spring also means state testing is back in its regular format after a two-year hiatus. RMS will start the Oregon Statewide Assessment System (OSAS) on Monday, May 9 with a special week-long schedule.

From Monday, May 9 through Thursday, May 12, students will be in testing sessions from 9 – 10:50 AM with a short break between sessions. Then, we will have our regular morning break and shortened classes the remainder of the day– the schedule appears below. Friday, May 13 is a normal day and classes begin at 9:00 AM.

To maximize student success, please make sure your student brings extra snacks and a water bottle and gets plenty of sleep– as always!– during the week. We always have snacks available in our Dining Hall during morning break so please encourage your students to take advantage of this option! We’ll also have extra snacks throughout the morning since lunches are very late.

For students who are opting out of state testing, we will provide supervised spaces for quiet reading and homework completion from 9 – 10:50 am, Monday through Thursday. If your student is opting out and chooses not to come to school during the testing period, classes start at 11:10 am each day.

For more information about state tests, the purpose and rationale and options, please visit https://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/statetesting/.

Mental Health: Suicidal/Non-Suicidal Self Injury Community Event
Eugene School District is hosting a Self-Harm: Suicidal/Non-Suicidal Self Injury Community Event for parents/guardians on April 25th from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM in the Sheldon Auditorium. This event is open to 4J parents/guardians and any community members interested in learning more about this topic.

*This event is being funded by the Oregon Health Authority and Lines for Life Suicide Rapid Response Program and has been organized in collaboration with Lane County Public Health.

Speaker: Dr. Tiffany Brown
**For more information, check out the flyer (in Spanish and English).

Calling All Empty 2 Liter Bottles!
Brian and Chad’s Science and Tech class is beginning their rocketry unit and need your clean 2 liter bottles. They don’t need the caps but if you have them that is okay as well. Please send them in with your kiddo to be dropped off with either Brian or Chad. Thanks!!!

Roosevelt Family Math Nights Update
Over the past year, the RMS math team has embarked on a journey of inquiry and discovery as we seek to offer students a rich and rigorous math experience and a modernized approach to math instruction. Part of our work has also been to shift family and student mindsets and attitudes about mathematics, intelligence, and achievement towards research-proven facts that all students can succeed in mathematics at high levels. Ultimately, one of our goals is to decrease the predictability of outcomes in math at RMS based on class and race. Our work coincides with a state-wide movement to shift both instruction and sequencing over the next year.

To this end, we’ve held a series of math education nights (information linked) to share with you the topics we know are crucial to these goals. We draw your attention specifically to three recordings:
* October 21: Overview of our RMS and state-level work
* December 9: Modernizing math instruction
* March 3:   What’s meant by ‘college-ready?’

Thursday, April 7, we also heard from Angela Allen, ODE Office of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Talented and Gifted Specialist. Her presentation is linked here and we hope you might take some time to consider her message about acceleration and access in grade-level classes.

Thanks for partnering with us as we seek to give your students the best possible experience in math classes at Roosevelt!

Mental Health Resources – from your Admin and Counseling Team
**Activation Warning– Suicide***

In the past five months, eleven young people– younger than age 24– have died by suicide in Lane County, several of them in our South region. These events meet the CDC’s definition of a suicide cluster– an unexpected number of deaths in our region in this timeframe. There is no evidence to suggest these deaths are linked and on average, 10-12 youth die by suicide in Lane County each year.

No students at our school have died by suicide related to the following information, and we know it is likely we have students who have heard about or been impacted by recent deaths. Suicide prevention is everyone’s business, and we are asking for your help in creating as much protection in our school community as we can. According to the 2016 Lane County Student Wellness Survey, 24% of 8th-graders and 20% of 11th grade students in Lane County have seriously considered suicide.

Pandemic living has taught us the importance of talking about and addressing mental health and Lane County schools are responding. We want to offer information and resources to assist you in talking with your student about mental health. Linked here, you will find a Lane County resource list for families. This guide from national experts is also an excellent tool for talking about suicide with children. More resources and information at: https://preventionlane.org/prevention-topics/suicide-prevention.

What you can do?
Our intention is not to create panic, but to normalize talking about feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness and grief and to ask our community to help prevent future deaths:
* Ask your child(ren) directly about suicide.
* If they tell you they have thought about suicide, do your best to remain calm and listen carefully and thoughtfully with curiosity and without judgement.
* Access resources for your child(ren).
* Lock up or remove firearms, medication, and alcohol in your home.

While the topic of suicide can be difficult to discuss, we know being about to talk about suicide thoughts or feelings helps protect our young people. It does not increase risk to ask directly about suicide, and we know that often the opportunity to safely talk about suicide thoughts is a source of relief.
If you would like more support for your student, please reach out to our counselor and admin team or your student’s House teacher. Thank you for being willing to join in our community’s efforts to increase safety and wellness for our students.

If you or a loved one is struggling with mental health right now, please check out these links for support. You are LOVED, we miss you, and can’t wait until we are all back together again!
