Roosevelt Review

Roosevelt Bears...Dream BIG

4th Quarter edition

Insider News from Skeen

Our children are working so hard to develop the skills they need to be successful in college and career. Students are working hard to be Roosevelt Heroes every day! Additionally, we have students working hard to demonstrate their academic skills in problem-solving. In reading, we are often visiting classrooms in which students are reading closely to identify important information, making connections with what they read, and identifying how the text compares to other texts. In math, children are creating strategies to best help them solve complex, multi-step tasks, that give them the skills and confidence to solve real world problems. We are proud of the learning occurring at Roosevelt and of the fabulous students we are privileged to teach.
