Welcome Rough Riders!
Maximizing every student’s academic performance and personal responsibility is the mission of Theodore Roosevelt School. Teachers work collaboratively to meet the needs of all students by providing high quality instruction and ongoing assessments to ensure that students are learning.
Parents and families play a key role our community. Our PTA along with school site committees and/or advisory councils, and parent classes provide adults with many opportunities to familiarize themselves with not only our school site, but with our school district as a whole.
At Roosevelt, our students demonstrate that they are good citizens by following our school's model of "CHARGE," where our students are in CHARGE of their learning, and of the choices they make each and every day. Our students' academic success is our top priority. We support learning through the implementation of Common Core, the Write from the Beginning and Beyond writing program, ST Math, and other technologies that provide access to additional learning support. They demonstrate that they are critical thinking scholars and collaborative learners, and they serve as leaders in our school community.
Education is a never-ending journey and the Theodore Roosevelt School community continues to move forward, looking beyond the next curve, in order to find continued success.

Paramount Air Monitoring Activities
The Paramount USD administration is working with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) to provide our district direction and information regarding the current Chromium 6 investigative process in the City of Paramount. The SCAQMD is the regulatory organization in charge of the air quality in the area, as well as the agency providing information regarding the current investigation.
The SCAQMD has indicated to our district that their action plan includes the placement of testing equipment in district property. School district staff will work with the SCAQMD regarding location and timing of the placement and will provide access to their personnel so that they can complete the testing equipment placement. Additionally, we have asked for information regarding their reports and findings that can be shared with our district community, and they have directed us to their web site, which includes web pages dedicated to information about their air monitoring activities in the City of Paramount, their meetings and processes: http://www.aqmd.gov/home/regulations/compliance/air-monitoring-activities.
Paramount Unified School District is a Safe Haven for Students of All Backgrounds
In our diverse community, we recognize that many students and their families are struggling with questions, concerns and fears about the recent immigration enforcement actions taking place across the state. We work very hard to make our schools safe spaces for learning for every one of our students. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that a child’s race, religion, or immigration status do not create any barriers to their education.
On February 15, 2017, our Board of Education adopted a resolution indicating that our schools are a safe haven for all students and their families regardless of their race, religion, gender, immigration status, etc. By passing this resolution, our district joins several others across the State of California that have already done so on the recommendation of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.
The Paramount Unified School District embraces the diversity of its students, parents, and community, and views this as something that makes us stronger. This resolution is just one sign of our commitment to all of our students, parents, and community members.

College and Career Day 2017
Thank you to PHS students who visited our campus as guest speakers for College and Career Day. They shared their experiences with Roosevelt students and their future plans for college success! This was a great opportunity for our students to hear about the different programs and college options that are available for them in the future! Congratulations on your successes!
CHARGE Card Rewards
As a way to encourage our Guidelines for Success and CHAMPS at Roosevelt, we have implemented the "CHARGE" card program, where students are able to receive cards throughout the day for demonstrating positive behaviors both inside the classroom and during recesses. Students are eligible for the weekly drawing every Friday, where they have a chance to choose from the treasure box of prizes in the MPR. Our students are geared up and excited to show that they are following our school expectations on a daily basis while being ENTHUSIASTIC learners!
Morning Reading Lab
Each morning students are invited to attend our morning Reading Lab which is open from 7:50 - 8:10. Students are provided with a variety of books to read at their levels, and are working to build their literacy and comprehension by having a quiet place to enjoy their books. Students are working toward their individual Accelerated Reader goals to be able to attend a Knott's Berry Farm trip in June.
