A Note From The Principal
Dear Roosevelt Families,
It is finally March, which means spring is on the way! Spring break this year will fall toward the end of the month beginning on Saturday, March 18 - Sunday, March 26. School will resume on Monday, March 27th. We hope you all have a restful, fun, and healthy spring break!
A peek ahead into April as we have a lot going on and March is a pretty quiet month for activities and events...
Forward Exam testing will begin a week after spring break on April 5th for Roosevelt students. The general testing dates for each grade are listed below for any planning needs you and your family may have. Students will generally take the test at the beginning of the school day when they are most alert and ready for the day. Please avoid scheduling appointments for your son or daughter during their testing times if at all possible. If a student misses a test(s), they will make up the test at another time and/or day. Students will practice for the test with their teachers ahead of time to get used to the online system. The best preparation for them is to continue to learn at school through our curriculum. At home, please help to ensure your student gets a good night's sleep before testing and eats breakfast. As we get closer to the testing period, more details will be sent home and teachers will be communicating with you as well for those with students in 3rd-5th grade. The general testing schedule is as follows:
3rd Grade: April 5 - April 11
4th Grade: April 12 - April 19
5th Grade: April 5 - April 11
We will be hosting a spring STEAM family night on April 17th from 5:00-6:30pm. Families will be able to participate in STEAM activities together around the school. It always is fun and an engaging learning and family time for all! Keep your eye out after spring break for more information and an RSVP form to turn back in if you plan to attend.
