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 came 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.

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!

The Cultural Awareness Committee hosted cultural dancing during Roosevelt‘s Open House on
Thursday, January 24th.

Two dance performances highlighted cultural dancing from around the world. Students also had the opportunity to parade through the auditorium  in their cultural dress.

Thank you to Sarah Chacko and Serena Legatos, the committee co-chairs, for putting on such a wonderful event!
