A Note from the Principal


Dear Roosevelt Families,

I cannot believe it is May already! April flew by… and these last 5 weeks of school are going to go by in the blink of an eye!

Throughout the month of May as students continue their learning, they will participate in and work with teachers on various assessments to track their progress and see their growth in reading, writing, and math from throughout the school year. The best preparation for each of these is for students to keep on learning! 

May 23rd will be our annual field day (with a rain date of May 26th)! We are so excited to be able to do field day again! K-2 students will participate in the morning and 3-5 students will participate in the afternoon. A note will be sent home closer to the day of with more details on what students may need to wear/bring that day (water bottle, tennis shoes, etc.) and an opportunity for adults to sign up to volunteer in helping us make it a success!

June 1st will be our annual cookout and entertainment celebration from our PAL, the Southwest Rotary. We are so excited to be able to have our Rotarians back in school as they grill out for all the students and staff… and then provide surprise entertainment in the afternoon to celebrate another great year of learning and collaboration! More information on the lunch for that day will come home with your child closer to the event. 

Finally, our end of the year all school assembly will take place in the morning of the last day of school. Stay tuned to the weekly updates sent in IC for a time once it is finalized. We will celebrate and recognize our 5th graders moving on to middle school, recognize different groups for their work throughout our school this year and celebrate the end of another great year as a Roosevelt Family!

Take care,

Kristin Burgert

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:

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!

Social Skills

Our theme for April included a PBIS booster in which classroom teachers were to review the PBIS slides made during “mash-up” at the beginning of the year. These slides show pictures of various students in all areas of the building showing the Roosevelt Way. This boster reminded students, following spring break, of how to be respectful, responsible, and safe in all areas of our school. Continuing to enforce the expectations inside and outside of the classroom has set students up for success! Keep following the Roosevelt Way.  

Mash - Up

Our March Mash Up lesson allowed us to explore the tone of voice. We discussed how our tone of voice is a choice. We can choose to say things in a helpful way or a hurtful way. Groups read the story “Good News, Bad News,” in which the same statement was used throughout the book, but stated in a different tone of voice. After the story, students were given the opportunity to select a sentence, and spin the “tone of voice” spinner. They then were directed to read their sentence based on the “tone of voice spinner.” Finally, discussions were had following each student in regards to if their voice was helpful or hurtful. 

Next Month’s Theme: Roosevelt Hopes and Dreams

Student of the Month

Congratulations to March'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 office to see our March students of the month!
