On behalf of the staff of Roosevelt School, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! Whether you are new to Roosevelt School or you are a returning family, I hope you are as excited as I am for the year ahead.
As always, we look forward to partnering with you to provide your child with the best possible education. There are several easy ways to keep electronically informed and in touch with the school. School notices are emailed home to parents, and each month a newsletter will be posted on the school's website. In addition to correspondence with your child's classroom teacher, we encourage you to be on the lookout for frequent emails from the North Arlington School District detailing upcoming events and important updates. Please ensure that your most up-to-date contact information, including your current email, is on file. Furthermore, important questions requiring a response can be found on the parent portal. In particular, media consent must be given in order for children to be included in pictures that we frequently post on our school website. Lastly, our updated Elementary Handbook, which contains important information, may be accessed via the school website.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at any point regarding your child's education. I look forward to working together to ensure another enjoyable year at Roosevelt!

We are excited to be following a new instructional model, departmentalization, in which teachers specialize in specific subjects. Students in grades 4 and 5 will receive language arts and social studies instruction from Mrs. Wei and math and science instruction from Ms. Pigott.
Over the past few years, a lot of research and planning has gone into this new schedule, and we are excited to begin implementing it in the North Arlington elementary schools. Throughout the first week of school, we will be discussing expectations as they relate to preparing for different classes, transitioning, and sharing educational spaces with our peers.
