Multi Cultural Week

Conferences

November 1, 2019

Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,

The week of October 21 was our first Multicultural Week at Roosevelt.  This important event was made possible due to the hardwork and dedication of our Multicultural Club.   One of the highlights of the week was The Cultural Fair. All third graders in the district visited Roosevelt throughout the day and were able to “tour” 20 different countries.  Students at Roosevelt represented at least 19 countries. Roosevelt students with the assistance of Kent State University Early Childhood Education students worked the stations and presented different aspects and fun activities of the countries they represented.  The level of interaction between the high school students and the third graders was very impressive. This was a great event and I am excited to see how it will grow in the future. 

The culminating event of Multicultural week was a Naturalization ceremony .  A special thanks to Government Teacher, Ann Puhalla, for planning this inspiring educational ceremony.  US History and Government students witnessed 39 immigrants get sworn in as United States Citizens. Junior Isabella Kunsch opened the event with a great speech for this moving and wonderful ceremony.  The brass choir played The Star Spangled Banner and America The Beautiful. The enthusiasm and energy in Roosevelt’s auditorium could be felt by all. 

We proudly inducted 96 new students into the National Honor Society.  Students accepted into this prestigious group must learn at high levels, exhibit leadership characteristics, serve others and be of strong character.  

A critical part of being successful at the high school level is often the ability for students to develop positive working relationships with their teachers.  Parent/Teacher Conferences will be

  • Monday, November 4, 2019 — 5:00-8:00 pm, and 
  • Tuesday, November 26, 2019 — 8:00 am-3:00 pm

Have a great Thanksgiving!
