Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome back for the 2014-2015 School Year! This time of year is always exciting for teachers, students and parents. Please join me in welcoming several new teachers to our Roosevelt Staff; Lori Combs -Kindergarten, Sharon Lambert - First Grade, Amanda Painter-Ingam- Second Grade, Lindsay Lloyd has moved to Second Grade, Amy Fincher- Third Grade, Terry Yazzie - SpEd, and Lauren Rose will be our new Music Teacher.
Enclosed in the packet sent home the first day of school you will find important and helpful information for the school year. Please carefully review all items in this packet. Some of them are due back with signatures by next Friday, August 22 . Pay special attention to the morning arrival times located on the "Getting Your Child To and From School" page. It is imperative that we have accurate information for each child for safety, education, reporting, and funding purposes.
We are collecting a one-time PTO fee of $5.00 per family to provide every class with treats for our school-wide parties/celebrations and help with other student activities. Parents may still send additional items for their child's class if they wish, but we will provide the main item for each party. We appreciate your support of this fund. Thank you again to our parents and students for such successful fundraisers last year. We hope to build our Parent/Teacher Organization this year.
Our dedicated teachers will continue to focus on specific learning needs and improving academic achievement of all students . We are here for the kids! I ask you to join us as part of your child's educational team. Research shows when parents are involved in children's schools and education, results often include higher grades and standardized test scores, improved behavior at home and school, and better social skills. Our mission is to ensure all students are college, career and citizen ready.
I am honored to be a part of your child's education and Miami Public Schools. Please feel free to contact me with your ideas. The Miami Public Schools website www.miami.k12.ok.us also provides important information and updates. Communication between you, your child's teacher and school, is critical to their success!
Best wishes for a GREAT School Year,
Melissa Bekemeier- Principal
