Roosevelt Informer

Hope is the foundation for our shining stars of tomorrow.

Principal Post

Roosevelt Families,

It is hard to believe that we are almost half way through the first nine weeks of school. Students and teachers have jumped into learning and great things are already happening. You will notice this year we will have an emphasis on reading and attendance. These are two areas we have identified that will have a significant impact on student growth and achievement. Our goal this year is for at least 85% of our students to make a year's growth in reading. Our daily attendance goal is 95%. We will only achieve these goals working with you as a partner. There are several ways you can help. The first, many of you have already done by attending parent-teacher conference. Getting to know your child's teacher and discussing his/her academic progress is key. You can also help by reading with your child or encouraging your child to read at home. Reading 20 minutes each night can make a tremendous impact on reading achievement. Finally, you can ensure your child is at school, unless they are sick and have a fever. Parents are only allotted three parent notes each semester. If students are sick please submit a doctor's excuse.


We look forward to working along side you as we move toward achieving our reading and attendance goal. Thank you for all you do to support and encourage your student.



Sincerely,

Dr. Kelli Seymour and Dr. Philip Wright

Bears that CARE and VIB Lunch

At Roosevelt we have a school-wide behavior plan called Bears that CARE. Each letter in care stands for a word or category in our behavior plan.


C--Cooperate

A--Achieve

R--Respect

E--Empower


When students demonstrate these characteristics at school, they are given a Bears that CARE slip. The slip is then turned into the office. At the end of each month we have a Bears that CARE celebration where we draw five students from each grade level to be recognized for being Bears that CARE. There pictures will also be displayed in the hallway on our Wall of Fame.


************************************************************************************************


Another special tradition we have at Roosevelt is VIB Lunch, that's Very Important Bear. Teachers nominate two students each month as a VIB. Teachers may nominate students that have gone above and beyond being a Bear that CARE, students that have worked toward achieving a goal, or students that have reached a goal. If your child is nominated by the teacher, you will receive an invitation to this very special lunch. We would for you to join us if you are able to arrange your schedule.

A note from PTA....

  • Thank you to our PTA for our beautiful fall decorations outside. They look amazing!


  • You can help our school by collecting and donating Box Tops and Coca-Cola lids. As you collect these items, you may drop them off at the office. PTA then turns them into rewards and cash used to fulfill school needs. It is an easy way to help out.
