A Note from the Principal
Dear Roosevelt Families,
This school year sure has been unlike any other. As the year comes to a close, I want to say THANK YOU all for everything you have done this whole school year and especially since the start of at-home/online learning. The most important thing this year is that students knew they were safe and loved by you at home, their teacher and school staff cared about them from afar, and we did all we could to stay healthy and safe. We all look forward to the day we are able to get back to regular schooling together in person! This year has been trying on all of us in all different ways… everything you have done is enough and we are so grateful for that. Please remember to keep reading and learning over the summer too while taking time to relax, have fun, and be together as a family!
We look forward to seeing you on June 3rd or 4th to pick up student materials. Please be sure to reference the family letter that was sent home for specific directions. Families doing the drive through exchange should remain in your vehicle the entire time unless directed to open/close your trunk at specific times. If you have not signed up for a timeslot on PTC Fast to pick up your family’s materials, please email Bobbi Arneson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 424-0411 and leave a message.
I have one final note I want to share with you all. In case you have not heard (and since we are not at school together to see my growing belly!) our family is excited to welcome another baby in the coming months! Beckett is hoping for a girl this time ;) Baby’s due date is September 1st, so I wanted to share the news with you all now in case the baby comes early or on the first day of school. Pete Schultz will be my principal sub while I am out on maternity leave. He is a retired principal from the Fox Valley and has been subbing within OASD over the past few years. He is excited to meet all of you and spend the beginning of the year with you! I look forward to being back with you all after my leave is over as well and I know you will be in great hands while I am away.
Have a wonderful summer… stay healthy, safe, and have fun!
