Greetings, Roosevelt Families!

It was wonderful to celebrate with those of you who were able to attend our IB Fest / Centennial Celebration (Photos: Credit to Lisa Nelson-Sherwood, RMS Volunteer. Great job!)  Thank you to Mrs. Leach, Ms. LaVelle and RooFriends for organizing such a successful event.  Now that our new RMS Mascot has been revealed, I am honored to be the Principal of the Roosevelt Bears!  It brings me joy to celebrate the important path Teddy Roosevelt laid to protect our National Parks.  

On Thursday, we also celebrated Charlie Hernandez.  Thank you to Ms. O’Malley and Charlies’ friends for your leadership in honoring her beautiful life.  If you are able to, please donate to the Charlie Forever 8th Grade East Coast Trip Scholarship in Charlie’s honor. 


Here are some ideas to share with your student on how to celebrate their teachers (past and present): Teacher Appreciation Week- May 8-12.  On behalf of Roosevelt Families, RooFriends will be providing a coffee truck on Wednesday and a catered lunch on Friday. If you’d like to contribute, please DONATE here

Important: Remind Students to Charge Their Chromebooks!

State testing is right around the corner, starting on May 15.  As we prepare, many classroom teachers may administer practice tests.  Please be sure your student brings their charged chromebook to school everyday so that they can prepare with the rest of their class!
