Good evening Roosevelt families,

 

It was nice to see everyone today.  Thank you for the care and patience that took place during arrival and dismissal times today.  Thank you to the Roosevelt PTA for their welcome back refreshments in the LMC.  Your boys and girls did a wonderful job on the first day of school.

 

As you know tomorrow is going to be a full day of school.  Here are some answers to a few questions/concerns you may have.

1.)  My child is complaining they are really tired.

a.    Don't worry, staff will give them time to rest as needed and provide many breaks throughout the day.  It is common for children to be tired as their bodies adjust to the new routine of school.   It really doesn't take too long to build their school stamina.  An early bedtime with plenty of rest will help.  Try to have them stay away from the electronic devices prior to bed.

2.)  Questions about k-4 lunch?   

a.     Plenty of staff will be in the lunchroom to assist students.  Teachers will be practicing prior to lunch as well.  Please make sure you visit our food service link at goo.gl/HN4tWx if you have any questions about the lunch menu, free and reduced lunch applications, etc.

3.)  Questions about k-4 recess?  

a.     Staff practiced today and will continue to do so again tomorrow. We have many adults outside at recess duty to assist children.  I would encourage you to review our behavior expectations with your child.  They can be found at http://roosevelt.livoniapublicschools.org/our_school/school_climate_poster   Roosevelt the Tiger has many good tips for our boys and girls!

 

CURRICULUM NIGHT

Thursday, September 7, 2017 is CURRICULUM NIGHT FOR GRADES K-4

Don't forget, Thursday, September 7 is a critical opportunity to meet your child's teacher and learn all about their classroom. Please join us for Curriculum Night. This night is an important evening for families to hear from their child's teacher, understand the way their child's classroom will operate and build those relationships with your child's teacher.   See below for schedules.

Curriculum Night is for adults only.  Please have an adult member of your family attend. If for some reason child-care issues would prevent you from attending, then you may drop your Roosevelt aged child off at the gym that evening prior to heading to your curriculum presentation.  Parents will need to pick them up at the gym as well.
