Congratulations to an outstanding paraprofessional, Ms. Cassody Leadon, for being awarded our staff rotating award, the Spirit of the Bear Award, for the week of January 4!


Ms. Cassody Leadon was recognized by our last week's recipient, Mr. Carlos China, who wrote—

  • I would like to start the year off by passing the Spirit of the Bear trophy. The individual I have chosen has helped me a lot since I started working at Roosevelt. She showed me the ropes around the school. She takes on challenges head on and never gives up. She doesn't just inspire me, but she also inspires the students to take on challenges and to never give up. This person is Cassody Leadon! Thank you for all you do in this school!


Congratulations to Ms. Leadon, and thank you for being a true Bear!
