Roosevelt School Sixth-Grade Students
Roosevelt Celebrates our 6th Graders
06/17/2022
The final two weeks of school have been a blast! All students had the opportunity to participate in many events including ceremonies, field day, and year end celebrations. However, we wanted to make sure the 6th graders had their proper sendoff before heading to the Jr. Sr. High School. On June 15th, our 6th graders had their promotion ceremony. The families were there to support their children and celebrate with them. On June 17th, we held a Beach themed dance in the gymnasium. Fun was had by all. During the last week of school, we also had a 6th grade carnival, and we ended the last day of school with our second annual clapp out where the 6th graders had one last time to walk each hallway and stairwell while all students and staff clapped and cheered for them. Eventually, the 6th graders left through the main entrance which is where they started their Roosevelt careers. The families were there to continue the cheering and celebrating. Congratulations Roosevelt Class of 2022!

Better Speech and Hearing
05/04/2022
For the month of May, our speech students at Roosevelt School are celebrating Better Speech and Hearing Month. Although awareness of speech and hearing difficulties is a year-round necessity, setting aside a month calls special attention to identifying and treating the troubles associated with speech and hearing. To celebrate, our Roosevelt students are learning all about the different parts of their mouth and how each part helps us make sounds. They are also learning fun facts about speech and hearing. For example: Did you know that to produce a phrase, about 100 muscles of the chest, neck, jaw, tongue, and lips must coordinate? or that Sound travels at the speed of 1,130 feet per second. That’s 770 miles per hour! Students are having a blast learning new facts and growing a better understanding of speech and hearing. They are also helping to grow awareness throughout Roosevelt School by creating posters. Please help us spread the word about Better Speech and Hearing Month!!!

Students in Gym Celebrating
Read Across America at Roosevelt
03/09/2022
The first week of March kicked off Read Across America, and Roosevelt School made sure to celebrate it each day. For grades K-2, we were fortunate enough to have some special guest readers including Firefighter Gonzalez, Officer Garcia, Superintendent Haines, Principal Cata, and The Cat in the Hat. The 3rd graders were visited and read to by the Elks Club. Thanks to the Elks, every 3rd grader was given a short novel that they could keep. Our students in grades 3-6 were also visited by Author/Illustrator C. Spliedt. He read one of his books to the students and demonstrated some of his artistic talents while creating characters based on ideas from the Roosevelt students. It was wonderful to celebrate the love of reading and share the hopes that we will all continue to read every day.

Global Play Day
Global Play Day
02/18/2022
On Friday, February 18th Roosevelt School participated in Global School Play Day. This was a day dedicated to the students experiencing unstructured play while in school. While there were some class assignments and other assessments that were completed before the mid-winter break, every student was able to spend more than half of the school day playing with games, toys, cards, and other traditional fun activities. We were happy to "unplug" as a school and avoid any technology including items which may require batteries. While the students and staff had a great time playing it was observed that students were also learning key skills like socializing, sharing, using strategy, and time management.

Holiday Bear and Gifts
Roosevelt School is Ready for the Holidays
12/22/2021
December was a month dedicated to Kindness. As quickly as the month came, we are watching it leave and bring with it, a New Year. Our 6th graders had an opportunity to celebrate a Winter Dance with the help of the PTA. Additionally, all of our students were able to join in a Spirit Week before the holiday break. These fun activities could not have been done without the support and "kindness" of our community. And our favorite act of kindness for the month was our staff members' donations of toys, games, and teddy bears to Holy Name Hospital's Pediatric Wing. Please take the time over our break to relax, eat cookies, and spend time with your loved ones. Have a Happy New Year!

July 4th Float

Happy Fourth of July! This year all three Ridgefield Park Elementary Schools participated together in the traditional town Fourth of July Parade. It was a great way to really kick off the summer season in true RP fashion. After overcoming many challenges this year, the theme of the 2021 float was, “We’re In This Together.” Members from all three PTA’s worked together to make this fun and colorful project come to life. Students and PTA board members from all of the elementary schools rode on their impressive creation while waving to the crowds, blowing bubbles and energetically dancing to great music. A great time was had by all!

Roosevelt Grade 6 Promotion Ceremony
6th Graders Say Goodbye to Roosevelt School
06/22/2021
The sixth grade students of Roosevelt School had their promotion ceremony on June 17th at 11:30. Family and friends were able to be in attendance, and many classrooms from in the building came outside to cheer on their older role models. The ceremony was not conducted in its usual format, but who can blame this group for celebrating their achievements in their own way. Something new this year was a dance solo performed by Alexa De Los Santos Pena. The students also sang "Stand by Me," which was very fitting for a group who always looked out for each other. While the families had the opportunity to watch their children become individually recognized, the highlight of the ceremony was the shared dance moves each duo performed at the end. We are so proud of this group and know that they will impress their new teachers next year in middle school. Congratulations Roosevelt Class of 2021!

RS Kindergarteners Celebrate Their Promotion
06/21/2021
On Thursday, June 17th, at 9:30 AM, the kindergarten students of Roosevelt School had their chance to shine in front of family, friends, and staff. The promotion ceremony was celebrated with our 33 students who will be moving on to bigger things next year. Speeches were shared by both Dr. Bender and Mr. Cata. However, the highlight of the event was the performances completed by our students. Even though we had an unusual school year, these children were able to sing songs, dance, recite poems, and lead the crowd into joyous cheers. We are so proud of how resilient the kindergarten students were this year and look forward to seeing what they will accomplish next year.

Mr. Kenny
Mr. Kenny Fulfills His Promise
05/18/2021
Roosevelt School had their Hero Squad Fundraiser in the month of April. All of the money raised went to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Besides last year, Roosevelt School has continuously done a fundraiser for the LLS each year under Mrs. Lawrence. Mr. Kenny wanted to continue this phenomenal tradition and so did the Kindness and Caring Club. As an incentive, he told the students he would shave his hair into a mohawk for the entire month of May if we raised more than $3000. Not only did Roosevelt School raise $3000, it went way above that at $4125.87! Thank you to everyone who helped Roosevelt make the world a better place! Pictured below is Mr. Kenny and his “Mayhawk” which he has had since May 1st and will continue to have until May 31st. Attachments area

Caterpillars and Butterflies
Roosevelt Kindergarteners Raise Caterpillars
04/30/2021
As most students were getting ready for spring break, some of the kindergarteners at Roosevelt had one more thing that needed to be done. Our students released the butterflies that they raised from the caterpillar stage. During the weeks leading up to this great event, the students had the opportunity to watch the caterpillars eat the needed vegetation for energy and to pupate into a chrysalis. From there, it was a waiting game for about a week. At that time, the butterflies began to pull themselves out of the chrysalis and slowly flapped their wings to help dry them off and become ready for flight. On Friday, April 16th, the students went outside to have their snacks and say goodbye to friends who would hopefully continue to help pollinate flowers and help with the circle of life. The students loved this opportunity to see the butterflies leave their netting and fly to the trees on our school grounds.

Enrichment Activity
Roosevelt School Offers Enrichment & Assistance
04/15/2021
The traditional school setting that we all knew has drastically changed over the past year. Much of this is due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Roosevelt teachers are seeking many opportunities to continue keeping our students engaged. Each grade level is offered different activities to choose from on a weekly basis. Some of the activities include Arts and Crafts, Recorder Club, Dance, School Newspaper, Comic Stips Creator, Spanish Club, Sports Talk, and Maker Space. During the afternoon sessions on school days, many teachers offer these activities in addition to their available time to provide additional support to our learners. A second grader named Alan who attends Mrs. Morris' Marker Space Club says, "Being in Maker Space inspires me to build things and prepare me for when I'm an adult." Alan said he hopes to become an engineer when he grows up. These are awesome opportunities for students to stay connected and focus on engaging activities that challenge their mind and collaboration with their peers. The School Newspaper (Scarlet Quill Junior) has been a great success with the joining of interested journalists from each of the three elementary schools. One of our contributors, whose column is called Ask Ms. Know it All said, " I take joy in giving other people advice. Giving other people advice helps me learn the type of person I want to be and better myself. Hopefully our readers and peers know they are not alone, and someone is always here to listen, and to help." Our students are involved and we can see they are also helping others and planning for the future. I commend the teachers for their continued support of our students and recommend that your child join an afternoon club/activity when they have the time.
