From the Principal's Corner 7-30-19

Hello Parents!

This will be a very exciting year at Roosevelt.

      We have many new teachers and a few changes. Some may already know that Mrs. Cadwell and Mrs. Fitchner decided to move from kindergarten to 2nd grade. They are a great team, and I know students will feel lucky to be their students again. Mrs. Everson moved to fourth grade, and she is looking forward to repeating with some of her former students as well. Our new kindergarten team, Mrs. Titmus and Mrs. Beaudry, come to us with loads of experience and enthusiasm for kindergarten. We also welcome Mrs. Marlene Dodd in 3rd grade, Mrs. Katie O’Neil in 5th grade, Mr. Thomas Mellen in 6th grade and Ms. Tahirih Cahill as our art teacher. It is an exciting time to be a Raider!

      One area of the school that is not taking a summer break is the outdoor classroom. A big thank you to the volunteers who have spent time weeding and maintaining the outdoor classroom this summer: Mrs. May and her son Ryan; Mrs. Cadwell; Mrs. Titmus (new Kindergarten teacher); Kim Poulson and her mother Sandy; Asher Spencer; Ethan Emmons; Jessica Pazdan; Nathan Sutter; Dawn Nistal; and Nova Duft. Also thank you to Mike Ayres, school custodian, who has helped the clean-up effort as well. THANK YOU!!

      If you are interested in joining an upcoming garden weeding party, please email
