Welcome Message from Your Principal

  • Dear Roosevelt Elementary School Families,

    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are thrilled to welcome our students and staff back to campus. I hope this note finds you enjoying the rejuvenating days of summer and that you and your family are looking forward to beginning a wonderful school year ahead. Now is the time to look forward to the new school year as we gear up to greet your children on Thursday, August 24th! I can assure you that I share in this community’s commitment to caring for our students each and every day while providing them with an engaging learning environment.

    Roosevelt Elementary is a special place for our students to learn and grow. Together with our dedicated staff, we will continue to strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, visible, safe, and accepted. Our shared vision of “inspiring and empowering all of our learners to pursue excellence with compassion and integrity,” will continue to guide our mission to using best practices to engage students to become enthusiastic, life-long learners and confident, global citizens, while cultivating academic achievement, positive character traits and independent, creative thinking. We are dedicated to setting high expectations and committed to bringing out the best in ourselves and others through kindness, trust, and respect.

    With my goal of continuing the tradition of excellence here at Roosevelt Elementary School, I am committed to exploring new ways with our staff to meet the needs of all students. We have goals this year related to equipping students with real life experiences, increasing student learning, and engaging our community and families. Partnering with families is crucial to promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally. Our school staff is eager to work collaboratively with you about the ways that we can best serve your family and the resources that we can provide as we partner with you to set your child up for success!


    We encourage all families to stay connected and informed by following our district website and social media pages and signing up for our school’s Teddy Times Newsletter that is run by our fabulous PTA. For information on holiday breaks, minimum days, events and updates, please refer to the district calendar. Please look for procedural updates communicated to you through Blackboard Connect, our district’s communication platform.

    In partnership,

    Amy Onyendu, Ed.D.
    Principal, Roosevelt Elementary
