Seasons Greetings

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, or just enjoy this time with family and friends, we want to take a moment and tell you how glad we are that you are part of our Roosevelt Family. May the spirit of this season remind us of the many joys in our life, the community around us, and the loved ones we hold dear. From our Roadrunner family to yours: Happy Holidays!

Winter Music Concert

Grades 3, 4, & 5 will be performing at 12th Street Auditorium located adjacent to the Rockwell Administration Center (RAC) on Tuesday, December 10th at 7:00 pm. We invite you to join us for a short concert, lasting approximately 30 minutes, to ring in the holiday season and celebrate the hard work of our Roadrunners.


  • The doors to the auditorium will open at 6:30 pm.
  • Students may arrive any time after 6:30 pm and before 6:55 pm.
  • Drop-off and pick-up students using the door on the east side of Rockwell off of Ash St. (one way north) by the basketball courts. Just follow the signs!
