Do you have students that like to draw?
Well, do we have an opportunity for you! Our school district’s United We Walk Committee has an event each year celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The students have the opportunity to create a design that will be the inspiration for our 2023 United We Walk Button. I would like to personally invite you to encourage your students to participate in the United We Walk Button Contest. Students can draw a piece of art about what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and legacy means to them focusing on Dr. King's message: "I Have A Dream. . .1963-2023. We know that our students are awesome!! Let's give them a chance to share their amazing skills. The attached information will provide more details. Please submit any contest entries to me at Jennifer.Graham@wbsd.org no later than Friday, December 9. Thank you for your help, time, and support.

Roosevelt Elementary 2022-2023 Bell Schedule
Bell Schedule 2021-2022
The doors will open at 8:10am for the 2022-2023 school year. Due to a lack of adult supervision students will not be allowed in the building until 8:10am.
If students are dropped off prior to 8:10am they will be required to wait outside the building. (Note adult supervision will not be provided prior to 8:10am)
Students will enter the building, go to their locker, and then immediately to class. Staff will be present to greet students at the classroom door starting at 8:10am.
Our goal is to reduce the amount of time students are in the hallways congregating with other students.

Title I Services at Roosevelt Elementary
Roosevelt Elementary qualifies as a Title I building. With Title I funding we are able to provide multiple resources to students that support academic success. Some of these resources include but are not limited to,
Intervention support in the areas of reading, writing and math.

Summer academic programs
This year food services will be providing the opportunity for all students to receive free breakfast but not free lunch. With that being said, I encourage you to still complete the application if you feel you may qualify for services. The amount of Title I funding Roosevelt will receive is based on these percentages.
