Dear Roosevelt Families,
Welcome back! We’ve been waiting for our students and families to return for another “Safe and Solid” year where we “Encourage and Equip” every learner to discover who they are and to discover personal curricular strengths for their future. Our staff promises children that every child will learn (make a year’s growth, minimum), that there are no excuses not to learn (for staff and students), and that students and staff are given the time and space necessary to learn.
Each year we review the vision, mission and promises with the members in our FDR community. And, our goal this year is to strengthen the vision of our school through positive behavioral supports. You will notice that Tribes (Learning Communities) will be strengthened through our Morning Meetings. And, frequent, positive communication regarding the classroom and your specific student will come through Classroom DoJo directly to you. For more information, you may visit the links below:
You will find useful information under the parent tab on our website including a copy of Roosevelt’s handbook. Please read through the handbook. After you have read the handbook and reviewed important topics with your child, sign and return two forms: the student compact and the handbook notice which are included in your packet. The handbook notice states that you’ve read the handbook, understand the handbook and agree with its contents. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. And, if you need a hard copy of the handbook, please call our office. Here are links to help you find the parent tab, our website and the school’s handbook:

Again, we are thrilled to start the 2018-19 school year with you and your student. Please stay in contact with me, your child’s teacher and with our office staff in the upcoming year. We look forward to collaborating with you and serving your family.
