Updates from Mr. Green

  • Roosevelt Elementary School Week of January 12, 2020

    Posted by WILLIAM GREEN on 1/13/2020

    January 12, 2020

     

    Roosevelt Tigers did an amazing job last week adapting back to our school routines.  The next four months are when we really tend to see the greatest growth in student learning.  By this time of the year, there are no mysteries as to the routines of the class and school, positive and productive relationships with students and families have been established and we have plenty of achievement data on students to make mid-year teaching adjustments.  We look forward to seeing this growth and are excited about the upcoming months.

     

    Thank you to the Roosevelt PTA and Mr. Graham for hosting our family movie night this past Friday evening.

    RECYCLING ITEMS

    Roosevelt Elementary School is proud to introduce two new recycling programs that will benefit the planet as well as our school.  We will be collecting dental care items and snack pouches and sending them to TerraCycle.  TerraCycle is a global enterprise dedicated to eliminating waste in our landfills and oceans.  They take items that are typically non-recyclable and work with leading companies to turn them into new products.  The more items we send, the more TerraCycle will donate to our school.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO RINSE OUT HEALTHY SNACK POUCHES OR TOOTHPASTE TUBES, just make sure they are as EMPTY as possible and put the cap back on when possible.  Please see the flyers attached and look for the collection flyers sent home with your student. 

    Collection bins will be located in the school and recycle items can be sent to school with students. 

    Colgate dental care program

    • Any brand of toothpaste tubes and caps
    • Any brand of toothbrushes
    • Any brand of toothpaste carton and toothbrush outer packaging (NOTE: a lot of these are plastic coated and cannot be curbside recycled) 
    • Any brand floss container

    PLEASE NO ELECTRIC OR BATTERY TOOTHBRUSHES, AND/OR THEIR PARTS. 

    GoGo squeeze program

    Thanks for all your help and enthusiasm!

    ART NEWS FROM MRS. CONNORS

    November and December

    • Kindergarteners learned about abstract art and created art by tearing paper and gluing it collage style to another paper. Next, they created a self -portrait and then we read the story Mouse Paintand created colors from the 3 primary colors on our own mouse.
    • 1stGrade learned how lines become shapes and we did a shape search in the art room and then a shape project. Then we learned about the primary colors and painted with them.
    • 2ndGrade finished their texture project and then began learning about symmetry and just finished some cute symmetrical snowman using snowflakes they made for the body.
    • 3rdGrade learned about organic and geometric shapes. They made fun lava lamps using those shapes and then painted a color wheel after learning about the primary and secondary colors.
    • 4thGrade learned about perspective in art and created a snowman using a different perspective than usually done with oil pastels. Those were messy. Then they had a review of primary and secondary color and completed a color wheel.

    The whole school will begin a clay unit in January!!! It's their favorite and mine!!

    SNOW and the COLD

    We escaped December with very little snow!  The frigid temperatures and snow may be back in January or they may give us a break for a little longer. Nonetheless please ensure your children are dressed for the weather.   Please know that children who don't have boots, coat, gloves/mittens, and snow pants are discouraged from playing in the snow.  Sitting in wet clothes all day isn't fun! We go outside if temperatures are 15 degrees or above when including the wind chill factor or as they call it today the RealFeel.

     

    THANK YOU FROM MR. DOUG our CROSSING GUARD
