    Thank you Roosevelt School and staff!! Farm Day 2014 was another success thanks to the well organized staff of Mrs. Larsen/Ms. Pacheco's class of 3rd graders. Thanks to an enthusiastic teacher and chaperones the kids stayed focused engaged and motivated despite poor weather. I couldn't have asked for a better group and it makes volunteering to help all the more fun to look forward to!! Ms. Pacheco...YOU ROCK!!

    This is an outstanding school with a wonderful staff. My children had one of the best years of their life at this school.

    My daughter did not speak english when she entered Mrs. Saldivar pre-school class. By the end of the year she was able to speak english with some difficulties but she was able to express herself. She also learned to write her complete name. Mrs. Saldivar & Mrs. Jauregui are great.

    Roosevelt has one of the most dedicated and experienced staff's in district. Most of the teachers who are at Roosevelt have taught here for more than 15 years. Many have taught several grade levels during their tenure at the school. The parent support from this neighborhood school is very positive.
