Roosevelt School students held a very special and ceremonious Veteran’s Day Assembly and Celebration for our Veterans of Foreign War. The SPHS chorus, orchestra, and band all came to Roosevelt to play for our Vets and were amazing! There were also some dramatic readings of poetry by our students, as well as a presentation to our Vets of nearly 500 student-created and colorfully decorated cards, complete with a personal message thanking them for their service to our country! The ceremony was capped off with the entire school singing “Grand Ole Flag”, with each waving their very own American Flag! Well done, Roosevelt!

Today Roosevelt students were treated to an assembly relating to Environmental Science and conservation. The Illusion Maker company performed a show that combined the imagery of illusion and magic with an educational twist about the importance of taking great care of our environment by Reducing, Reusing, Recycling, and NOT littering! Special thanks to Dr. Tempel and the Borough of South Plainfield for sponsoring and bringing this “Clean Communities Assembly Program” to our school!

Students were able to purchase leis for two dollars each and on Friday October 20th, “Hawaiian Day” happened at Roosevelt! Student efforts raised $1137 dollars toward the cause and these proceeds were donated to the Maui Food Bank! Great Job Roosevelt!

Roosevelt students really got into celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month! One particular activity that brought the passionate side out in the students, was learning about some of our current day Hispanic heritage heroes like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who are both arguably the biggest athletic names in the world! Students got to vote on whom they thought was better by decorating the uniform jersey of their favorite player, and then posting it to the board hanging in the hallway. Can you count them up and see who got the most?

Roosevelt third grade student Aadhav Shankar was selected to display two separate pieces of his original artwork The Tulip Field and The Night Sky (both pictured below) at the 4th World Cultural Arts Festival at the National Mall grounds in Washington D.C. this past weekend! Hundreds of submissions came in from around the world, and Angie (an 88 year old professional artist pictured below with Aadhav and his mom) picked Aadhav’s work to be displayed. If you see Aadhav, Grade 3 in Ms. Lyne’s class, on the playground, on the bus, or in the halls of Roosevelt School, be sure to congratulate him. We are very proud of him, as are his parents (seen below with Aadhav)!

Students got the fabulous opportunity to “Read Across Roosevelt” as well! This is when all of our Roosevelt students, on Read Across America Day, all come out into the hallway of Roosevelt and do silent sustained reading for a minimum of 20 minutes at the end of the day! It kind of puts the exclamation point on what is already an outstanding day for all!
