As a grandparent of a student at Roosevelt Elementary School, I would like to know the date of the next concert, so I may be able to make plans to attend. My grandchild loves the music program through the school. Do you post a calendar for upcoming school activities?

Roosevelt wasn't just a school, it was a second home. The teachers are always nice and understanding, and they definitely prepare you for the next grade, especially when you're going into middle school. The students are extremely bright and friendly, and they have become, like, a second family. Education there is great, so I'm not sure why people are saying it's not. For all the years I've been there, it just kept improving more and more. They have a wonderful PTO who work very hard to make our years here at Roosevelt some of the very best by creating fun events. Roosevelt was such an amazing school, and it was extremely sad to leave last June (I'm a seventh grader now). They really should've made Roosevelt into a middle school too, because the council decided not to. Keep it up, Roosevelt <#

I graduated from Roosevelt this past June. i was so sad to leave. To me Roosevelt isn't just a school but a home. The teachers are like your parents, and the students are like your siblings. One life changing thing i learnt from Roosevelt is "If you belive you can succed". I hope very much to be able to go back and thank my teachers and the staff for all their hard work. THANK YOU ROOSEVELT FOR M EXPERIENCE.- Peggy O,

I just read the comments before I posted this. I am a father and involved with my child education. She is in her second year and have found that her progress is going well. I try to get involved more with the PTO, but as a single parent working full time it has some draw backs. The safty is good. At times I wish the building had an auditorium for plays and such. Over all, up to know, I am happy with the school.

I have a daughter in her second year at Roosevelt. Pre-K went wonderfully, and her teacher (Mrs. Bonci) was a caring and welcoming presence to my shy child. My daughter bloomed in ways that astounded me, for such a short time. This year, I am hoping for the same positive experience, and I hope to become involved with activities through the PTO. The school itself, as others have stated, appears large, bright, and welcoming. Halls are lined with student's artwork as well as encouraging, friendly reminders of proper behavior. The health center is absolutely phenomenal, providing routine care through the Great Valley Brook system as well as a school nurse, and a dental program. What I know of the principal has been mostly positive.

I am on the PTO at Roosevelt. We are a group of mom's who have come together to try to bring some wonderful events for your children and ours. We work extremly hard to try to bring a variety of events to our school. We want to make our school a better place. We are open to new members always and have had alot of new members this past year and we have listened to anyone that has come to the meetings with new ideas. We want more support from more families and welcome you. Just give us a chance.

I I have been a parent at Roosevelt for six years. In that time I have yet to hear one positive remark about the PTO. The PTO is what keeps the traditions of the school alive. They are the driving force of any nighttime activities offered at the school. They have had numerous events over the years, such as literacy nite, safety nite, book fairs, just to name a few. Many of the Teachers are truly dedicated, caring, professionals.

I have children at Roosevelt School and are for the most part very happy with the education that they have been receiving. I do feel that to much emphasis is being placed on 'testing' though. As for parent involvement I wonder if the parent that commented on the overhaul of the PTO knows that there are new members this year and that as far as 'running the school' if it were not for these parents the children would not be able to have the extras that occur during the year. I have worked with these parents and know that they are very open to new ideas and encourage people to attend the PTO meetings, but time and time again it is the same parents that come. Maybe instead of criticizing, when it is time for an 'overhaul' this person should come, get involved and be the voice of change.

I have three children, two at Roosevelt and one who has graduated. I've been mostly happy with the School. Depending on the teacher, the children do receive a good education. I have issue with some grades doing very little but focusing on MCAS to the elimination of all other core subjects. The children have very involved art teachers, music could be a bit better, but they are lacking other extracurricular activities. Parental involvement would improve with a complete overhaul of the PTO, eliminating the clique atmosphere - and if administration would stop allowing the PTO to essentially run the school. This is the #1 reason more parents don't get involved. On a positive note, the school has a state of the art health clinic with a full time school nurse, a true rarity these days - and a top notch nurse at that, who really cares for her children.

I have 2 children that attend Roosevelt School. I truly believe that they are in a great place. The teachers are very friendly and always show concern. The Principal is also very kind and caring. If I have ever expressed a concern the administration has dealt with it promptly and professionally. I feel the school notifys parents of many events going on and offers support for academics as well as information to assist our children at home. Roosevelt is a school that works hand and hand to make home/school communication what it should be! Thank you to Mrs. Montaque and her staff! Keep up the good work for our children!

Both of my daughters attend roosevelt and i have been an involved parent for five years. One major issue is the saftey of the children in the school parking lot-espically at drop off/sunderlin rd.! There really needs to be a traffic light due to other drivers passing on the right and nearly running children over! i have seen this happen time and time again with no exaggeration! in my opinion,the principal is 'friendly' but seems to only care about the 'bottom line'. The extra-curric. activities are very limited. No plays,concerts,etc...More parents would probally volunteer on a more regular basis if the pto was more genuine and less politically driven.I can say my girls have had some very good teachers over the years.If you show that you are truly invested the teachers will reciprocate.Claire simpsn (first grade) is a phenominal teacher who i highly reccommend!

I think that Roosevelt School is very poor. They let just anyone sign off on childrens' report cards and they also have poor security when it comes to signing children out of school.

My oldest son has recently graduated from Roosevelt, and I have a daughter in the 3rd grade there. Roosevelt is the best school that they have ever attended. We have done alot of moving and our oldest son had been in 5 elementary schools before going to Roosevelt, so we have alot to compare it too. The teachers truely care about the students, the office staff will know you by name. You feel as if you are part of a large family, and a small community. We have never had to be concerned with our childrens safety, and the doors are always open to you.

I have been involved with this school since 1999. I have found that, with my youngest child, at the time being in 1st grade, was very good except for the class size (32). His 2nd and 3rd grade teachers were also very good. The 4th grade experience was not as good. I did not get any responses to my questions and I was concerned for my child's actual grades. Let's hope 5th grade goes better. We are trying to move out of Worcester and amy very excited to do so. I was an active parent and I saw the good and bad.
