Inside Scoop from Skeen

Dear Roosevelt Families,

Thank you for helping make this a very smooth start to the 2015-2016 school year. Communication is key to a successful home/school partnership, so I wanted to make you aware of some of the ways you can expect us to communicate with you this year. During each month, you will receive a newsletter like this one via email that contains school-wide information and events, that will allow your family to stay current on school news items and make plans to attend events that are scheduled for the upcoming month. Please make sure we have your correct email on file, as we are moving to using email as a communication tool this year.

We are always available to answer any questions you may have by emailing a staff member or calling the school. Making sure you feel informed is one of our top priorities. Thank you for the opportunity to work with your children each day.

Last week we had our first C.A.R.E. assembly to announce grade level winners who were "Bears that C.A.R.E."--the students selected will receive a special edition Roosevelt t-shirt. Continue to talk to your child/children about our C.A.R.E. expectations at home--they are doing a great job and it is because of you!! We also gave out our first golden tray award for the class with outstanding behavior in the cafeteria--congratulations to our 3-5 Lifeskills class--they will have a special treat next week.

We are so thankful for your support for our school and your student! Thank you for all you do at home to make sure our students are successful--it takes a village to raise a child and we are so grateful to partner with you!

Proud to be a Roosevelt Bear!

Mrs. Skeen
