Starting October 7 at Roosevelt, your child can be tested for COVID-19 at no cost each week!

  • Every Thursday from 11 am - 12 pm, trained professionals from the Premier Medical Group will conduct the testing using the rapid antigen test.
  • The rapid antigen test is a shallow nasal swab
  • Results are texted to parents in 15 minutes.
  • Testing is optional and requires parent registration. Click here to register your child.
  • Do not come to school sick to be tested. If you're sick and need a COVID test, go to the YSD Student Family Center Testing Site (105 N. 4th Ave on Mondays - Fridays from 1:00 - 5:00 pm).

This week, we don't have a new Second Step lesson. Instead, your child practice Growth Mindset & Goal-Setting lessons from the past 3 weeks on paying attention, handling mistakes, working toward goals, and managing unhelpful thoughts. Please keep practicing these skills at home! Here's a 1-minute video from Common Sense Media with helpful information (English and Spanish).

Congratulations to Mrs. Cheryl Tucker, one of our amazing para-educators at Roosevelt! Mrs. Tucker was awarded our staff rotating award, the Spirit of the Bear Award, for the week of October 4.


Here's what colleague Mrs. Dawn Perez wrote when nominating Mrs. Tucker:

  • I am pleased to share the Spirit of the Bear Award with Cheryl Tucker. I am so grateful to work alongside Mrs. Tucker during small group reading! I appreciate her positive spirit that fills our classroom. “You are good readers and decoding big words” and “You’re being a good friend and helping each other out” are only a few of the encouraging words I’ve overheard her use with her students. She has bucket-filling words for all of them! Cheryl is a sweet life-saver during our very intentional learning time!


Thanks Mrs. Tucker your talent and hard work with our Roosevelt Bears!

Thank you to Mrs. Fry's 1st-graders for sharing their artwork in our hallway. Pablo Picasso stated that, "Every child is an artist," and here's proof. Mrs. Fry's students learned to create using the art elements of shape, color, and texture.
