A Note from the Principal
Dear Roosevelt Families,
I cannot believe another school year is done and we are gearing up for summer. I want to say THANK YOU to you all for everything you have done to help make it a great school year. The students have learned and grown so much, and I am so proud of all of them. Congratulations to our 5th graders as they move onto middle school! We are so proud of you all and cannot wait to see all the amazing things you do in your future!
It is bittersweet for us to share the retirement of Tracy Crowley, our media and building assistant. We are so grateful for the time and years she has spent as part of our Roosevelt Family. She has made a huge impact on students’ lives and helped instill a love of reading! We want to say thank you to her for her years of service and wish her all the best in retirement as she takes on new adventures and more time with her family! We will miss her dearly, but she will always be part of our Roosevelt Family!
We will be holding our beginning of the year Get To Know You Conference format for the 2022-23 school year for you to meet your teacher, share information about your child, etc! Our dates next school year will be the evenings of August 23 and August 25. An IC message will be sent to you in August with more details and information on your child’s teacher, times of conferences, how to sign up, etc.
I want to wish you a wonderful, fun and relaxing summer! Please remember to take time to recharge as a family and keep reading and learning. See you all in September!

6th Grade Immunization Requirements
(First dose given at age 11, before entering 6th grade)
Your 5th grade child will need the Tdap immunization before entering 6th grade as required by Wisconsin State Law.
Please inform your school of the immunizations your child has received by emailing the school nurse your child’s name and date of immunization.
If you choose to sign a waiver, please contact your school office or click on this link https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/forms/f0/f04020l.pdf to obtain the paperwork. On the paperwork, you will need to complete Step 1, Step 4 and Step 5, sign and return to your school before the start of 6th grade.
Penny War Results
The student council at Roosevelt organized a Penny Wars where students could bring in any amount of change for their grade level bucket. The winning grade level won an extra recess. Student council members voted to select a charity where the money would be donated and the Oshkosh Humane Society won. A total of $979.00 will be donated to them, way to go ROOSEVELT!
A letter from our Health Office...
Hello Roosevelt families! As we wrap up this school year, please review the following
information to ensure a smooth transition into 2022-2023.
End of the Year Medication Pickup:
All medications (prescribed or over the counter) are to be picked up by a parent or guardian on or before
the last day of school June 2, 2022 in the health office. Our District’s policy will not let us keep them for the next school year.
Parents are encouraged to have an exact count for the last few weeks of school so we do not have any leftovers to
send home. Phone calls will be made to these parents prior to last week, asking them to pick them up.
New School Year 2022-2023
We are excited and looking forward to the start of a new school year here at Roosevelt. If your student has a change in their health or has a healthcare need at school, please contact Mikaila Shear via email over the summer and she will get back to you before the start of next school year. She can be reached at: mikaila.shear@oshkosh.K12.wi.us.
If your student will need to take medication at school, please work with your doctor to have the medication request form completed, signed, and faxed before the start of the school year. You will receive a hard copy of this medication request form in your summer envelope. The fax number for Roosevelt is at the bottom of this letter. **As a reminder, the directions on the medication bottle must match the written order on the medication request form.**
If your student has a health plan (IHP) or emergency plan on file with the school, you will be receiving a copy to update for 2022-2023 school year over the summer as well. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Is your child up to date with their immunizations? Summer is a great time to get to the doctor for physicals and immunizations! Please check with your doctor to see what wellness requirements are needed for your child.
A few last reminders:
*Stock Epi-pens do NOT go on field trips.
*Please fill out an Emergency Epi-Pen/Anaphylaxis Plan even if you don’t have a personal Epi at school.
*PRN medications (Ibuprofen, Tyelnol, Tums etc.) must come in a New, unopened Bottle.
THANK YOU for embodying the ROOSEVELT WAY!
Let’s Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe!
Enjoy your summer!

“The Roosevelt Way” Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe
Our theme for May included a summer safety video in which classroom teachers were to show a video that provided students with summer safety tips given by John Holland from the Oshkosh Fire Department and Kate Mann from the Oshkosh Police Department. Classroom teachers and students then continued this conversation following the video by discussing other ways to stay safe throughout the summer. We hope all students have a fun, and safe summer!
Mash - Up
Our May Mash Up lesson related to our hopes and dreams for the 2022-2023 school year. Students helped to define the words “hopes” and “dreams” after watching a short video. Each student was then given a graphic organizer in which they were to write four hopes and/or dreams that they had for the following school year. Some students were able to share these with their classmates. Each child brought their graphic organizer back to their teachers. Each student’s teacher will keep the graphic organizers and pass them along to their new teacher, next year.
Student of the Month
Congratulations to April's students of the month. These students have been following the Roosevelt Way by being respectful, responsible and safe inside and outside our school. Each and every winner is a role model that students throughout the school look up to. Thank you for being leaders in our school. Make sure to look at the bulletin board near the media center to see our April students of the month!
