Dear Parents,

As we approach the end of the school year, this great school community is made possible through the talent, experience, knowledge, and commitment of our Roosevelt teachers and the school office.

This week we honored our school secretaries, Samantha Vanis and Anna Raspanti. When you have a moment, please email them your thanks and appreciation. In addition, in a few weeks we will be honoring our fantastic teachers and staff at Roosevelt by recognizing "Teacher Appreciation Week" on May 6 through May 10. Throughout the week, the Roosevelt PTO will be providing a breakfast and a lunch to all staff along with some small gifts of appreciation to our teachers as a show for their hard work and commitment to our students.

Please take a moment to send a note or an email to your child's teacher and to any other adult that is making a difference for your child's experience at school. I am very proud of our teachers and staff at Roosevelt, and this upcoming week is our chance to offer a genuine "thank you" to that special teacher, who is making a difference.

Have a wonderful day!

Dr. Dwyer

Dear Parent/Guardian:

If your child has been taking medication at school, please plan to pick up any remaining in the school health office on the last day of school, June 4, 2019. Medication not claimed by the last day of school will be discarded. Please do not pick up emergency medication prior to the last day of school.

Medication prescribed for use during the upcoming school year (2019-20) requires submission of a new Medication Authorization Form (and Allergy Action Plan and Asthma Action Plan, if applicable). Forms are available on the Health Services page of the District 64 website.

If your child is attending Worlds of Wonder or Extended School Year (ESY) you are responsible for transporting medication to the summer school location, and for picking it up at the end of the session(s).

Please call the Building Nurse in your child’s school health office if you have questions.

Best wishes for a safe, healthy, and happy summer!

Come out to cheer our D64 Special Olympics 2019 Team

D64 families and staff are invited to come and cheer for our D64 Special Olympics Team on Sunday, May 5, 2019. Opening ceremonies for the Track and Field Spring Games begin at 8 a.m.; competition events begin at 9 a.m. outdoors (on/around the track) at Prospect High School, 801 W. Kensington Rd., Mt. Prospect, IL 60056.

This year, D64’s team boasts seven students representing our two middle schools -- Emerson and Lincoln -- along with Field and Roosevelt. District 64 is very excited to offer our students the opportunity to participate and train as a team with their peers as part of the D64 Special Olympics Team. Our focus is not only to improve students’ physical skills, but also teach the athletes about competition, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

Special Olympics is an organization that provides year-round athletic competitions, which encourages the athletes to demonstrate courage, develop physical fitness, and experience joy while sharing their skills. Special Olympics focuses on athletes’ abilities with the goal of fostering a sense of community among the athletes.

Please show your proud support for our D64 team!
