Principal's Message


This year we are continuing our theme of WHAT YOU DO MATTERS.

Students will be setting goals and taking responsibility for their success. Parents can help by making sure their children are ready to learn and are being encouraged daily to do their best. Every word we say matters! The staff will do all they can to plan an instructional day that matters to help each student meet our district goals.

I look forward to a wonderful school year!!

  • He was the youngest President in our Nation's history
  • During the Spanish-American War, he was a lieutenant colonel in the Rough Rider Regiment.
  • He was elected Governor of New York in 1898
  • As President he was a "trust buster" and forced the dissolution of a great railroad combination in the Northwest
  • He liked to quote the favorite proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick. . . . "
  • He ensured the construction of the Panama Canal.
  • He added enormously to the national forests in the West and reserved lands for public use.

A Brief History of Theodore Roosevelt Elementary

The original location of Roosevelt Elementary was on Grand Ave. It was built in the 1920's and was severely damaged in the Sylmar Earthquake of 1971. It was deemed unusable and eventually demolished.

Roosevelt Elementary was eventually rebuilt at its current location at 501 South Halladay Street. The new site was dedicated in 1973.

If you walk up to Roosevelt School today this is what it would look like:
