Teacher Emails

Sent 3.20.20

Parents, 

As we transition to our "new normal" the best way to contact your teacher is by visiting our website and emailing them directly or use the Remind app, (if your teacher utilizes that tool).  You can access their emails at:

http://ro.mandan.k12.nd.us/staff

The main office will be closed to take calls until further notice, but you may leave a message and it will be routed to the appropriate staff member.

Staff is working hard to make sure we can deliver educational services for your child.  It's exciting to see teachers learning and collaborating as they explore new ways to deliver curriculum.

Stay safe and healthy.

Thanks,

Roosevelt Staff

Notice to parents

Sent 3.20.20

In news of extending school closure and moving to eLearning opportunities for your child, we are scheduling times for you or your child to come to Roosevelt and pick up their student issued iPad. This process will be designed to be quick, easy, and safe. We ask that you come to the school on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm. We will have dedicated staff to deliver iPads quickly and efficiently. Simply drive into the bus loop area by door #3 and a staff member will walk to your vehicle. Provide them with the student name(s) and classroom teacher and the iPad will be handed to you without even leaving your vehicle.

I STRONGLY encourage you to make plans to pick up devices during these hours, as other times will be difficult to accommodate due to staff availability and the safety of all individuals. If these times absolutely do not work, please call 751-6507 and leave a message and someone will contact you to try and accommodate your needs.

Thank you in advance for your support and patience during this difficult situation. I hope you and your family stay healthy and safe. PLEASE SHARE!!
Sincerely,
Wade Meschke
Principal

Title I Program Information

about 1 year ago


Roosevelt Elementary School is currently in the fifth year operating as a Schoolwide school. The Title I School-wide Program has allowed us to serve all students in reading and writing. This allows us to better serve all of the students at Roosevelt.

Method of Delivery
• Pullout
• In-Class

All schools must ensure that services provided by Title I personnel, regardless of the model of delivery used, are supplemental.

Title I services are supplemental in terms of greater instructional intensity and opportunity to learn.

Research offers no conclusive evidence for superiority of either the pullout model or alternative models.

The state Title I office does not endorse on instructional delivery method over another. The primary responsibility for the choice of instructional models is at the school building level.

The Mandan Public Schools provides a pullout, in-class and extended year programs. These methods are chosen by the principal and Title I Staff. Each school chooses what method they feel will be most effective for their students.

Annual Review Meeting

Roosevelt Elementary School required to hold an annual review meeting to review all the components of our Title I program such as the student selection process, professional development, the parent involvement policy, the compact, classroom teacher communication, assessment methods, service methods, curriculum, and any other items important to the operation of our Title I programs. This meeting will be conducted in the spring of the year and you will be notified when this will take place.

Compact for Learning

Roosevelt Elementary School must develop a written school-parent compact jointly with parents for children participating in Title I activities, services and programs. These compacts have outlined how parents, the school staff and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and also build a school-parent partnership.

Parental Involvement

Research has strongly linked the correlation between parental involvement and student academic success. Roosevelt Elementary School values and promotes parental involvement.

Research shows that children do better in school when parents talk often with teachers and become involved in the school. There are many ways that parents and teachers can communicate with each other, rather than relying on the scheduled parent-teacher conferences. Close communications between parents and teachers can help the student.

Another good investment in your child's education is to volunteer. Depending upon parent's availability, interests, and the needs of the school, the opportunities are endless. Some suggestions include: lunchroom monitor, tutoring, library aide, classroom speaker on a specific topic of interest, and concession workers at school events. Parents should take stock of their skills and interests to volunteer. School personnel may not know what parents want to do as a volunteer.

Roosevelt Elementary School has developed a Parental Involvement Action Plan that incorporates parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision making and collaborating.
