    Welcome to FDR Elementary!

    Welcome to Roosevelt Elementary School, the home of the Tigers, where every student is learning today to become the leaders of tomorrow!  It is an honor to serve the FDR community and I look forward to another year of learning and growing.  Our school mission is our guide to ensure the decisions we make are in the best interest of our school community. 


    Our mission at F.D. Roosevelt is to empower our culturally diverse TK -5 students to collaborate and be creative, conscientious and critical thinkers. Through purposeful, engaging, and reflective instruction, the staff will continually refine our practice to support the unique academic, social, and emotional needs of our students.   We cultivate an environment in which a person’s character is as equally important as their academic success.


    Our school believes in teaching our students to be great citizens by implementing PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support).  PBIS focuses on teaching students behaviors that are appropriate at school, how to problem solve with peers, and work together collaboratively respecting each other’s opinions.   Our school motto is taught throughout the year in order to ensure all students understand what our expectations are at FDR.
