New PTO Committee

The Roosevelt PTO is very excited to announce the formation of a new committee called the
All-Abilities Committee. 

The mission of this committee is to promote awareness, community, acceptance, and advocacy of students with all abilities and their parents at Roosevelt School.

All of our children are special; however some have special needs.  There are over 600 kids with IEP’s and over 200 kids with 504’s in D64.  Parents of kids with various abilities want the same things for their kids as all parents want – for their kids to have friends, be included and participate in school activities.

Because the PTO is the engine for many student events, we feel it would be highly beneficial to have the All Abilities committee facilitate the best way to include kids with differing abilities, raise disability awareness and embrace diversity.

Our goal is to work together to create an environment where kids learn to embrace and accept differences and grow up to be kind, compassionate and empathic human beings.

The co-chairpersons for this new committee are Maura Cullen and April Mosier.  They have children attending Roosevelt and are actively involved in various committees in the school district.  They are committed to helping kids reach their full potential.

If you would like to participate in the committee, be included in informational emails or just have the time to contribute and share ideas please email Maura at maura.cullen@yahoo.com. All volunteers are welcome to join.
The dates and time for the upcoming meetings of the All-Abilities Committee will be announced in future communications.
