A Message From The Principal

A parent surprised Mrs. Smith this morning with a gift card at her crossing guard position. This was such a great act of kindness from a wonderful parent recognizing all of the hard work and dedication Mrs. Smith exhibits each day to support the safety of our students, parents and staff. She starts the day and ends the day at the crossing guard position…rain, snow or sun…with a smile!

A Message From The Principal - Hi Roosevelt-McGrath Families,

Attendance is so important. Good attendance is one of the most important single factors that contribute to greater levels of achievement by our students. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that students be in class. Regular attendance and punctuality enhance opportunities for student success and we expect parents/guardians to help us in reaching this goal. Successful students take advantage of, and are engaged in, as many instructional minutes as possible. We will win in this arena by getting all our kids in front of our staff and in our buildings. This will be the greatest strategy for increased student achievement.
