Helping the dismissal process

Roosevelt families,

I sent the letter below earlier today with regards to supporting the traffic concerns at dismissal time. Today it went much better but I still need your help. We had traffic backed up on the side of Commerce road starting at 2:50pm. Please review the letter and wait to line up for your students until 3:10pm. The Roosevelt staff will work very hard to get students to cars safe and quick.

Thank you,

Mr. West

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.

Husky PACK Parent Resources

Roosevelt Visitor Protocol

We're excited to welcome back parent volunteers in the 22-23 school year!

Unscheduled visitors coming to the building will not be permitted to enter past the front office.

Drop-in visitors will not be allowed to enter the building without a pre-scheduled appointment. We will continue this approach in an effort to maximize safety & security while minimizing disruptions to learning.

Families are welcome to schedule in-person meetings with administrators, teachers, counselors, and other staff. These meetings should be scheduled in advance and communicated with the main office. The option to Zoom for meetings will also continue to be available.


  • Must have approval from the principal and teacher before volunteering.
  • Interested volunteers must also complete a volunteer form.
  • ICHAT background checks are still required for all non-student volunteers.


If your child is interested in buying bagels on Fridays, we are selling them at $2 a piece. The proceeds will help our 5th Grade Campers! Thanks in advance for your purchases!

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.

  • Before and after school program

  • Summer academic programs

  • Academic resources

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.

West Bloomfield Community Education

is proud to announce the start of their 2nd season of the youth wrestling program this fall. Last year's inaugural season was a huge success with over 50 wrestlers participating in the club, and 4 wrestlers qualifying and competing in the MYWAY State Championship. This program will continue to focus on developing the fundamentals of folk-style wrestling, while also focusing on the discipline needed to be successful in the sport. In addition, building a love for the sport through various games and fun competitions is a primary goal. Leading the program are West Bloomfield's own middle school wrestling coaches, Coach Tom DeGrand and Coach Carlos Acosta. Additionally, the experience, expertise, and passion from Coach Mike Zimnicki, Coach James Hitchcock, and Coach Tim Burzynski result in a team that is able to provide unparalleled support for youth wrestlers. The program also welcomes and encourages parent support during practices. Wrestlers will have the opportunity to participate in multiple MYWAY competitions throughout the season. These are considered optional, but certainly encouraged if your child has one or more years of experience. We look forward to seeing your child on the mat!
