Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,
The recent, sudden passing of one of our valued students has made the past few weeks challenging. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Eric Proctor’s family and friends. We are so grateful for the continued support from our community, staff, and students who have helped us all to get through this difficult time.
Recently, after school I noticed a few members of our student council and other clubs who were placing encouraging messages on each student’s locker. Messages stated very positive thoughts such as, “You are beautiful”, “We are glad you are a part of TRHS”, Never give up on your dreams”, and “there is no one in the world quite like you”. We appreciate that these welcoming messages remind us that we are a community where everyone is supported, respected, and included.
In late September, we had a powerful all-school assembly titled N.O.P.E. The focus of the assembly was on narcotics, overdose, prevention, and education. The assembly was a high-impact, multimedia presentation that was well received by our students and staff. The attached link: Resources for November branching out 2017 was created by our Student Assistance Program Coordinator Jacquie Peoples Dukes, and counselors. It is a general resource for parents, staff, and students on issues including mental health, alcohol, tobacco, and drug prevention and intervention.
We are proud of our many fall athletic teams who have enjoyed outstanding seasons. Our women’s golf, soccer, and volleyball teams were all Suburban League champions. This is quite an accomplishment for our students and coaches. It takes a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication to consistently win in our sports conference.
The Ohio Educational Library Media Association selected Roosevelt Junior Briana Courtney as the recipient of the 2017 Read On, Ohio! Award for the Northeast Ohio High School category. Briana was nominated and received the award because she exhibits an enthusiasm for reading and sharing books, reads independently on a voluntary basis, and is an avid user of the school library. She started an after school book club and wants to promote literacy and connecting with other members of the school community through books. Our Media Specialist, Jennifer Flaherty, will be receiving the Ohio Educational Library Media Association (OELMA) Outstanding Individual School Library Award. This award recognizes an exceptional school library program that is integrated across the total curriculum thereby meeting the needs of diverse learners. Congratulations to Briana and Jennifer for your great accomplishments.

Your dedication, hard work, and creative spirit, energizes me and enables our students, our school and our community to grow and prosper.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
