I can’t believe that March is already here and we are heading into our last quarter of the school year. On March 16, 2018 third term ends. Grades will be coming home on March 21st. Please check the portal for your child’s lunch account balance. We need your help in keep their accounts current. It is good to stay on top of the accounts by checking the portal on a regular basis. This year has just flown by. Our Roosevelt staff appreciates you parents for getting your students to school each day on time. Our attendance has really improved this school year. Our students are making great friends and they are using amazing leadership skills each day.
I want to say a huge thank you to all who attended our Literacy Night on February 26, 2018. Mrs. Lundell our school librarian hosted our book fair and Mrs. Jackson our school reading teacher put together some fun literacy stations. Our teachers and staff ran these amazing literacy activities to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday and the love for reading, writing, speaking, and art. We had many students donate books for the book exchange and had a very yummy dinner. We will be hosting our next family night on Monday, March 26, 2018 from 5:00-7:00 pm. Watch for more information to be coming home about this.
It was so nice to see so many grandparents at our Grandparent Lunch this past week. Thanks for loving and caring for these darling children. Thank you for stopping by our book fair in the library. It was fun to watch the students jump with excitement as they saw their grandparents coming to eat with them and read with them.
The parking lot procedures for picking up your children from school have been running much smoother. We appreciate the parents who are helping us to teach the children to use the yellow striped crosswalk to cross the parking lot. Safety is always our number one priority.
At the end of March, we will be starting our week-long spring break. Please take some time with your amazing students and enjoy the time with them. Some fun suggestions are taking walks with your children. Taking them to the park or a movie. Playing a board game with them. Reading a book together. We will miss them greatly and look forward to their return on Monday, April 9, 2018. We have so many wonderful teachers at Roosevelt who put in so many hours ensuring our children are receiving a highly rigorous education. Now is your opportunity to thank them for all they continue to do for our children.
Our kindergarten registration open house is scheduled this month for all of our incoming kindergarten students. It will be on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 2:00-5:00 pm. If you have not already pre-registered, please call the school.
