Kindergarten Jump Start

Kindergarten Jump Start is a free program for incoming kindergarteners that takes place a few weeks before the school year begins. Students participate in a variety of math, literacy and hands-on activities; learn school routines; and become familiar with their new surroundings.

Data shows that students who attend Jump Start are better prepared for kindergarten than children who do not participate. They also gain confidence, leadership skills and enthusiasm for school. Don’t miss this opportunity to give your child a successful transition to kindergarten!

To register your child, please contact the Roosevelt office.

Highly Capable Services

Roosevelt is one of three elementary schools in the district that serves highly capable children. Roosevelt offers high capable instruction for second through fifth graders in three classrooms: a second/third-grade split, a third/fourth-grade split and fourth/fifth-grade split. Students interact with their highly capable peers in the classroom, and are included with their Roosevelt classmates for recess, lunch, art, creative movement and music.

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

After years of success at the secondary level, Advancement Via Individualized Determination—or AVID—was expanded to two elementary schools in 2013-14. Roosevelt added the program in 2014-15 and is now one of four district elementary schools to implement the program school wide. AVID gives all students at Roosevelt the tools to be critical thinkers and to carry those skills into secondary school, high school graduation and college.
