Welcome back to the Roosevelt Middle School for the 2019- 2020 School Year!
We are excited about this year and all the great learning activities, opportunities and experiences, our 7th and 8th-grade students will receive from September 2019 through June 2020.
Roosevelt Middle school’s purpose and goal is to assist our students in their transition from elementary school to high school, both academically and social-emotionally, and to provide supports as they move from childhood to adolescence.
Our faculty works collaboratively to tailor their instruction to our students’ needs while developing them to be critical and independent thinkers. With this focus it allows us to construct our learning environments to be more student-centered, through scheduled collaboration focused on increasing proficiency and building strong character within our students. This approach ensures that we educate the whole child as they grow from Good to Great!
This year the Middle School will continue to expose our students to cutting edge technology in Robotics, Coding, Virtual Reality, and 3-D Printing. We are expanding our advanced Regents courses in Algebra I, Living Environment and U.S. History & Government to allow our 8th-grade students the opportunity to enter into High School with academic credits. Also, this is the 3rd year for our new Orchestra program, where our students in Grade 7 and now Grade 8 will have Orchestra music classes.
We look forward to seeing and engaging both students and parents/guardians this school year. Our relationship with the community is vital to our success and we can’t do this without you.
