Welcome to Roosevelt Elementary!

At Roosevelt we have a motto: Expect Success, Nothing Less! We believe that each student that attends Roosevelt will experience success socially and academically. We all treat students, parents, and fellow staff members with respect and dignity. If a student is in regular attendance, works hard while in school and does homework diligently, they will be prepared for middle school, high school, and higher education or the work force. At the heart of our educational belief is reading. We individualize reading at each level and provide the extra support to help students achieve benchmark. If students can read, we believe they will have their best chance for success in the near future. We also teach to the newly aligned state math expectations, use science kits to help students explore the world around us, use writing to communicate to an audience, and are using performance based assessments in Health and Fitness, Music, and Social Studies. Again, we high expectations for students to behave appropriately and to make significant academic growth each day in school. We are very proud of our school!

Healthy Youth Survey

Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th - 21st.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students' answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.

School History

In 1903, a school was built on the corner of 16th and Summitview and it was named Summitview School. In 1921, the school board changed the name of the school to Roosevelt to honor Theodore Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States. A new building was constructed in 1937, alongside the older building to house a cafeteria, classrooms and gymnasium. The old building was torn down in 1954. The second "old" building was torn down in 1991 to make way for the current facility that opened that same year. School historians have preserved a pictorial history of Roosevelt; photographs displayed in the hallway near the administration suite portray this school building from 1903 to the present.
