A Note From The Principal


Dear Roosevelt Families,

December will be a quick three weeks before the start of winter break at Roosevelt! 

We are looking forward to our Winter Music Concert on Tuesday, December 6th at 6pm (students should arrive at 5:45pm) at the Alberta Kimball Auditorium (at Oshkosh West High School). Mrs. Gates and all the students have been practicing hard for their performances and we look forward to doing our concert again since we couldn’t last year! Information has been sent home already on details, but a reminder will be coming home closer to the date. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s classroom teacher or Mrs. Gates.

The last day of school prior to winter break is Thursday, December 22nd. Your child’s classroom teacher will be in touch with you closer to the date about our winter celebration classroom parties that will take place on December 22nd. Winter Break will last from Friday, December 23rd through Monday, January 2nd. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd.

I want to wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season and hope you all enjoy a wonderful, healthy and relaxing winter break! See you in 2023!


Kristin Burgert

Important Student Drop Off Information

This is a reminder to review drop off procedures in the morning at Roosevelt. Please make sure all students are dropped off in the drop off areas either on Tyler or Coolidge Street( we are going to put some cones out each morning for the drop off area on Coolidge so it is easy to see since this side is more congested) as noted by the city signs for where you can park and where you cannot park. Be sure to watch signs for where you may park and where there is a no parking area. Parents may park on the side of the road and walk their child  up or drop off their child on the side of the road once pulled over onto the terrace. Please NEVER drop children off in the middle of the road. This is very unsafe and we do not want anyone to get hurt. There are safety patrols at all corners around the school block, so students are to cross ONLY at the corners with a safety patrol there to help them. Families are able to drop off on Sawyer Street and students can walk around to the back of the school to line up as well.
