FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S CORNER 3-2-2020

Celebrate Successes!

Thank you for donations to help us purchase our first ever Roosevelt Kindness shirts.  Students wore these shirts in February and walked through the neighborhood delivering Valentines and notes of kindness. We  received an overwhelming response of thanks from our neighbors who appreciate our kind students. If you would like to purchase a Roosevelt kindness shirt, please contact the office.  If we have enough interest, we may do another order for adults.

 

A big congratulations to 6th grade Grayson Williams.  He is our Roosevelt spelling bee champion and will move to the district competition.  Good luck Grayson!

 

During kindness week, Roosevelt students participated in a kindness store to purchase snacks for Ronald McDonald House families.  We donated hundreds of snacks to families in need. Our students are truly kind!

 

Please welcome Chris Miller as the new Roosevelt art teacher. Mrs Miller comes to us with years of experience as the art teacher from St Joes.  She will be organizing parent volunteers soon to help with the art program. Welcome to Roosevelt Mrs Miller!

 

Survey

We need your feedback. Please help us by completing the state parent survey. To access the survey, visit  https://eprovesurveys.advanc-ed.org/surveys/#/action/127100/p30811. Then pick your student’s school from the drop-down menu. Please complete a survey for each school your child attends. 

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete and your responses are anonymous. You can submit your survey from February 18 thru March 31, 2020.

 

Safety

Our district works closely with ACHD to ensure that driving and walking routes to school are safe for our students.  As you are walking your students to school, if you notice unsafe conditions that need repair, please let the school office know.
