Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,
Graduation day is almost upon the class of 2016. As we bid goodbye to our students, we are so proud of how they have upheld the admirable tradition of being a Roosevelt Rough Rider. Our students have excelled in so many areas and accomplished so much. Congratulations to our students and their families, as well as to our faculty and our entire support staff. Please celebrate their accomplishments with us at the Class of 2016 Commencement on May 22 at the Kent State MAC Center.
The day after graduation, the remaining students will be taking their final exams. Students should be aware that twenty percent of the second semester grade is based on the final exam. The third quarter grade is worth forty percent of the second semester grade. The fourth quarter grade is worth forty percent of the semester grade. Final exam scores are significant because they comprise twenty percent of the second semester grade.
