  • Roosevelt Elementary School Week of January 19 2020

    Posted by WILLIAM GREEN on 1/19/2020

    January 19, 2020

     

    Good morning Roosevelt families,

     

    Look what I wrote last year on January 20, 2019.  I think the message holds true again this week.

     

    Good morning Roosevelt families, 

     

    Who said they missed the snow? Haha!  Be careful on the roads, enjoy the new landscapes and don't overdo it with snow removal.

     

    Below is the rest of my message from last year at this time.  It holds true as well.  Items that are new are in bold and underlined.

     

    This week the Roosevelt staff will have the opportunity to meet and review our student's academic and social/emotional progress.  Since the start of the school year, our students have made continual progress in their academic and social/emotional development.  It is important to note, that not all areas of student growth can be objectively measured.  As Walt Whitman once stated in his work "Song Of Myself," "... I am large, I contain multitudes."  Our students are more than their reading levels, more than their math level.  They contain many parts that make each and every one of our Roosevelt Tigers unique.   Just right interventions are being finalized for our second intervention Window that begins February 3, 2020.

     

     

    Here are a few key takeaways from our review of academic data thus far this year:

    • Students are moving in the right direction through a combination of a growth mindset and impactful educational practices by their teachers.  Teachers in K-4 will be meeting this week in what we call a Data Dive to examine our school and classroom next steps based on our mid-year assessments.
    • Students who have a family practice that supports reading/math at home (i-Ready, RAZ KIDS, ready to their child, talking to their child about their day, reviewing take-home materials like Home Links and books, etc.) showed some of our greatest gains.

     

    I continue to be amazed by the hard work and dedication of our staff.  Our staff develops lessons that are engaging and also at the correct level of challenge for students. In addition, they take care of your most precious resource(s) each and every day. You can imagine with almost 400 different learners in our school that can be a daunting task.  However, those that can; teach!  We are a profession filled with people who do this job because we care about the future of our communities and who don't mind putting our needs last.  We are a group who care deeply about your children and see the potential in every human being.  We are thankful for our tremendous parental support and are blessed to be able to do this work. 

     

    I have a dream that one-day education is held in the eyes, hearts, and minds of society as one of the greatest and most important professions in the world.  What is your dream for your child and our society?   It might be nice to take a break on Monday and have that conversation with one another.   I would also encourage you to visit https://www.livoniapublicschools.org/domain/706 to learn about the School Finance Research Collaborative.

    RECYCLING ITEMS REMINDER

    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

    Martin Luther King Jr. Day

         Children do not have school on Monday in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  I believe it is important that our boys and girls understand why we don't have school on certain days throughout the school year.  A few websites that explain the significant contributions of Martin Luther King Jr. can be found at:

    https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/history/martin-luther-king-jr/

    http://www.nps.gov/malu/index.htm

    Dr. King's August 28, 1963 speech in Washington, D.C. continues to inspire me every time I listen to the words and the message it conveys.

  • 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.
