Family Math Nights 2015
Our TK-2 and 3-5 Family Math Nights were a HUGE success! Students and families had the opportunity to visit during the evening and complete stations with various math games, and were able to interact with our Roosevelt teachers, staff, and Student Council. Students earned a raffle ticket for each station they completed and prizes were awarded as well as a Free Homework Pass. Thank you Roosevelt community for making the evenings so enjoyable for all!
Family Read Nights 2016
Roosevelt School celebrated Literacy during our TK-2 Read Night. Students practiced foundational reading skills, practiced high frequency and sight words, designed their own story books, and completed other activities to support our ELA curriculum while participating with family members. Many students earned prizes and books throughout the evening, and members of our Student Council helped at the event as volunteers at stations. Students had a special guest appearance from "Alice in Wonderland" to listen during storybook time on our MPR stage. We are so excited to help bridge the literacy connections between school and home! Thank you parents for your support in
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.

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!
