Good morning Roosevelt Families,


As we enter the final week of October, please take a look at what is happening at Roosevelt Elementary School.



Have you heard about CUB CLUB?

Kindergarten volunteers and preschool students are spending Thursdays playing and learning together in Cub Club!  The project is part of ongoing collaboration between Roosevelt's preschool for students with autism spectrum disorder and kindergarten classes.  The goal of Cub Club is for students to meet each other, play together, and practice and reinforce basic social skills. The club kicked off with all of our kindergarteners learning about autism spectrum disorder.  They learned that all people are alike and different in so many ways.  Preschoolers with autism may be different, but they all want to learn in school, make friends, and have fun playing!  On Thursdays, Roosevelt's gym is set up with a rotating variety of fun tasks for young learners:  climbing wall, balloons, parachute, bowling, even a backyard "roller coaster!"  Cub Club groups enter the gym for a 30 minute play session where kindergarten students are coached on how to get a friend's attention, greet friends and wait for a response, and share with friends! Cub Club is a chance for kids to learn from kids and have fun at the same time!



As a reminder the Livonia Goodfellows food drive is running until November 17. Classroom teachers will have a box located outside their classroom doors for donations of canned, boxed, and plastic jars containing nutritious foods to give to families in need. Every single donation is greatly appreciated! Each classroom will have a student to represent the class and help count items.


A committee of 4th graders has been formed to participate in this charity event.  The 4th grade students will help collect and count the items with Mrs. Martz, on Fridays, during recess time.  We will also have a bulletin board displaying a turkey for each class to show our participation. The turkeys will earn a feather for every ten cans, boxes, or plastic jars; the class donates for the charity. The turkey with the most feathers, at the end of the drive, will be recognized with a luncheon for the class. 


LuLaRoe Fundraiser

The Roosevelt PTA still has money to raise due to falling short of our budgeted Color Run goal.  Maybe some LuLaRoe would entice you!  Please see attached information for the sale taking place the week of November 6Please note any fundraisers run by the Roosevelt PTA are just that and not endorsements of certain companies or their products.



Thank you for your feedback on Parent Teacher Conferences.   Feedback surveys indicated that our families were highly satisfied with the parent teacher conference sign up process and the conferences themselves.  A piece of feedback moving forward that was clear in the survey data was that parents felt 15 minutes wasn't enough time to discuss the multitude of items that were covered regarding their child.  The school district sets the conference window time frame, but we will meet as a school improvement team to see if we can stretch that out to 20 minutes next year.  In the meantime continue to communicate any questions or concerns to your child's teacher.  



PTA Reflections sign-up is ongoing. Deadline is November 10 for entry submissions.  Roosevelt typically is well represented in PTA Reflections so please encourage your child to participate.


Visit for additional information.


Submit all artwork entries together with the Official Entry Form attached and drop off your child's entry submission at the School Secretary's office on or before FRIDAY, November 10, 2017.



The holidays are around the corner.  Spirit Wear is a great gift! Visit Roosevelt Spirit Wear to place your order and show your school spirit.
