School Assemblies & Cultural Events

This PTO Committee researches and organizes 3 main assemblies each year in collaboration with Roosevelt’s Assistant Principal.

  • One assembly is for grades K-2

  • One assembly is for Grades 3-5

  • One assembly is an all school assembly toward the end of the school year.

This committee works with the building staff to make sure the assemblies tie into the curriculum and are a good use of student’s academic time.

Our first assembly of the 2018-2019 SY was an anti-bullying assembly:

On October 12th MBD Martial Arts is coming to Roosevelt for a
Bully Awareness & Prevention Workshop.

Did you know 1 in 7 students in grades K-12 are either a bully or have been a victim of bullying? Students will learn how to to be “bully proof” and strategies to deal with being bullied.

We are empowering our youth to be the change they want to see in our world through hope and resiliency training.

Students were encouraged to wear ORANGE on October 12th and support a message of unity, kindness and inclusion.

This committee also plans a breakfast and luncheon for Roosevelt’s Veteran’s Day celebration in early November. Veterans are invited to meet with students and share their stories so Roosevelt’s youth can gain an understanding and appreciation for our freedom and what veterans have done for our country. As a thank you, the PTO provides both breakfast and lunch for those veterans who join us!

Last year, Roosevelt hosted its’ first Annual Cultural Awareness Week from March 5th – 9th

Whether your family is new to the United States or your family has been in the country for many generations, we would like to celebrate the many different and wonderful backgrounds at Roosevelt Elementary School!

What a fun week at Roosevelt!  Thank you to everyone who participated, whether by bringing in old family photos and paper dolls representing your heritage or sharing traditional dress and ethnic dances on Friday.

We’d like to give an extra shout out to our Committee Chairs who first approached the school/PTO with the idea of coordinating a Cultural Awareness event at Roosevelt.  None of this would have been possible without your vision and commitment to making this happen.
Thank you!
