Hello, Roosevelt Families!

We are SO looking forward to seeing the excited faces of our students and families in the coming days. Roosevelt's theme for this year is "You Belong Here", and I'm eager to see the many ways that this mindset will support the academic and social/emotional well-being of all of our students, parents and staff.
