A Message from the Principal

I hope that everyone had a restful and relaxing summer. We are excited to see our students bright and early tomorrow morning!  The teachers and staff have been working hard to prepare classrooms for our students.  I am looking forward to spending tomorrow in the teachers’ classrooms to see our students and their teachers building a positive classroom community. Please plan for plenty of time for drop off and pick up. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience while dropping off and picking up your child. Let’s have a great school year!

Yours in Education,

Rosemary Wood, Ed.D.
Principal, Roosevelt School

Tomorrow’s Eclipse

For the eclipse on Monday, August 21 at approximately 10:15am, Roosevelt’s primary concern is the safety of students. Recess times have been changed so that all students will be inside by 10:00am. Some Roosevelt teachers will be doing district and NASA-approved eclipse activities with their classes while others will be staying indoors. The district has provided all teachers with the resources that they need to offer safe, age-appropriate activities.
