“Today the School, Tomorrow the World. Global Education for a Global Society” Greetings Roosevelt Scholars and Families, Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year! I hope you enjoyed your summer vacation filled with fun and exciting memories with your loved ones. We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of teaching and learning! Personally, I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your principal. Over the past year, I have had a chance to meet many of you and your children, and look forward to continuing building a healthy relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. Our school vision is to engage students in an educational experience that fosters international understanding and welcomes diversity of thought while preparing students for a globally interconnected world. By fostering an international experience, we mean that we expect our scholars and staff to be competent learners with the ability to critically solve problems and acquire answers through the process of investigating the world around them, with inquiry and questioning, and advanced problem-solving issues of local and global significance. We believe globally connected people are empathetic and build relationships with all stakeholders through win-win solutions and recognize the important role that each member of the team plays; no matter the time or place, they respect the dignity of others always. As we enter this new school year, I want to let you know that our staff will be engaging in conversations around having a globally connected mindset, both for themselves and our scholars. We believe that every person in this building should continuously grow and learn, and be equipped with the tools to "make good things happen for other people!" Despite obstacles that may arise, we must always believe in our ability to rise above challenges, nurture and support ourselves and others, and come out stronger on the other end. Additionally, I would like you to initiate conversations with your child about our new school-wide writing initiatives, and ensure your scholar wears the mandatory, student- selected Roosevelt HS uniform, daily. I want to personally invite you to attend our First Annual Rough Riders Community Ice Cream Social on Thursday, August 17 from 4:00pm – 5:00pm. This will be a perfect time to strengthen our Roosevelt HS community and meet-and-greet with teachers, staff and other families. Come out and enjoy ice cream and conversation with the Roosevelt community – our school goal is to see 80% of our families at this event! I hope to see each of you on August 17! As always, please feel free to reach out with questions or concerns. Thank you kindly, Aqueelha James, Principal Never Given, Always Earned 3
