A Message from Principal Steinberger (Aug 28, 2022)

Greetings, Roosevelt Families!

I’m excited to officially welcome you all back to Roosevelt for the 2022-2023 school year!  It has been amazing connecting with so many of you this past week, I look forward to seeing all of our wonderful students.  This year is already off to a great start.  If your child is like mine, these past few days have been filled with excitement, sadness, nerves … and ultimately acceptance.  Monday begins a new chapter, and any nervousness is completely understandable.  Please assure them that the routine of school will feel normal very soon! In the meantime, please reach out if you have any need for support from our team.

Have a great first week, and let’s begin this year with Roosevelt PRIDE: Personal Responsibility in Daily Excellence.
