Welcome back to the Roosevelt Middle School for the 2017- 2018 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 2017 through June 2018.
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 2nd 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.

Roosevelt Middle School Going From “Good To Great”
The Mission of the Roosevelt UFSD is to prepare students with 21st Century skills in order to compete in a global society while learning to be critical and independent thinkers. Multiple measures aligned with differentiated and culturally relevant curricula will ensure student-centered learning. By fostering supportive relationships amongst school, family, and community, we will create a bridge to promote achievement.
This past January, the New York Islanders worked with Mr Proctor and Mr Maragh's Roosevelt Middle School PE classes in order to promote the sport of Floor Ball, an adaptation from tradition hockey. The NY Islanders provided equipment and jerseys for the students to use while Mr. Maragh and Mr. Proctor implemented the new curriculum. The program was an overall success and the students enjoyed themselves. The RMS PE staff is looking forward to working with the National Hockey League's New York Islanders in the future.
Roosevelt Middle School Wrestlers shine at the Eastport South Manor wrestling tournament this weekend. While all of the wrestlers that competed took home medals in their weight class, Edwin Castro Morales stepped onto the wrestling mats for the first time in his young career defeating 4 of the 5 wrestlers in his bracket. All Roosevelt wrestlers represented our team, school, and community with class, respect, and pride and showed Long Island what Roosevelt is all about.
