I was very proud with the students and their hard work on the reading Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) this April. All students will take the on-line MCA math assessments the weeks of April 28- May 12. All 8th grade students will take the on-line MCA science assessments the week of May 12-23.These assessments are used to determine how well students are achieving in our school and scores are reported to the State of Minnesota Department of Education.

 Congratulations to all the students for a fantastic spring play production of “Little Mermaid”. The audiences loved the performances and everyone involved did a fantastic job.

 You’re invited to come and see the fantastic student work from throughout the year at the Roosevelt Royal Arts and Academic Celebration.  Student work from all teams and departments will be on display Monday May 12th from 5:30-7:30 PM. Come and support the hard work your student has done this year! Cookies and beverages will be available and RMS music groups will be performing as well.  I hope to see you there!!!

 On Thursday, May 22 we will recognize 8th grade students at the annual Presidential Awards breakfast. The students that have achieved the Presidential Award have earned a 3.5 cumulative grade point average or higher and achieved the 85th percentile or higher on their fall MAP reading and math tests. The students will be honored with a Presidential pin, certificate and a proclamation from President Obama.

 Please feel free to contact myself or your child’s team Assistant Principal with any questions or needs. Thank you for taking an active role in your child’s education!
