Good Evening Roosevelt Families,

I have a number of important updates for you this week.  I hope everyone enjoys this last week before Spring Break!

Student Led Conferences

This week from March 23 to March 25 we will have minimum days.  March 23 and March 24 are our scheduled time for Student Led Conferences.  We are going to continue our practice of having students lead these discussions with you all at home. Teachers will help students complete this form, which includes evaluating projects or assignments that they are proud of and that have challenged them.  Teachers will be available to connect with you either on Zoom, phone or over email after school on Wednesday and Thursday.  

RooFriends Social at The Original 40 Brewing Company: Tuesday, March 22, 4:00 – 7:00 PM.

Spirit Week

This week begins a fun Spirit Week at Roosevelt, please remind your children to participate!

Soccer Tryouts

San Diego High School Visit During 8th Grade Lunch on Tuesday

San Diego High School Showcase and Enrollment Event will be on Roosevelt campus Tuesday, March 22nd during 8th Grade lunch.   High students and staff from ASB, Athletics, AJROTC, Cheer, and various pathways will be present to answer questions and promote all of the opportunities at SDHS.  This will be a fun lunch time event for the entire class.  

Next week high school enrollment packets will  be sent home with all 8th grade students.  In order to complete enrollment to San Diego High- parents must complete the packet and return them off to San Diego High School enrollment fair scheduled for April 16th 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.  If that day doesn’t work you can drop the completed packet to SDHS during regular hours.

Counseling Update

This past month, the counseling department has been presenting information to students around the topic of gossip and rumors.  Please partner with us in helping students understand the impact of gossip and rumors on other students and their friendships.

California Parent Survey

The California Parent Survey provides us with information that will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.  Your participation is voluntary but is also very important. Please see more information here and you  fill out the survey here. Thank you for your participation!
