Roosevelt has many traditions that make our school a vibrant school community. Some are long established, while others are new. All of them bring together students, teachers, parents, families, staff, administrators, and community members.
We have assemblies at least once a month. Guest speakers regularly visit Roosevelt to speak to the students on subjects such as bullying, nutrition, storytelling, art and science.
Roosevelt students are also recognized for their achievements. Student of the Month awards are not only given for academic successes, but for good citizenship, effort, participation, turning in homework, etc.
Field Trips and Outdoor Education
All grades attend fun and educational field trips throughout the year. The 5th graders attend Outdoor Ed for a week of environmental science learning.
Just before the new school year starts, we hold a school fair where parents/guardians can get all of the neccesary information to start off the school year fully prepared.
Back to School Night
At the beginning of the year, families visit their child's classroom to hear a presentation by the teacher about the upcoming school year.
Every Halloween our students parade around the school yard while parents and families watch. Awards are given for best costume, best homemade costume, and most creative.
Winterfest is Roosevelt's annual event held every December. Students from every classroom perform a skit, song, or some type of performance.
3rd through 5th graders participate in a school spelling bee in January. The winner moves on to the regionals in San Francisco, with a chance to be in the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC.
In May, our school hosts a PBL Fair to show our families the PBL projects that our classes have been working on throughout the year.
Parents and family members can visit their child's classroom to see what they've been learning during the year. Families can also visit other classrooms to see what future or past grades are doing.
