Each year, Roosevelt hosts the annual Theodore Roosevelt High School Leadership Retreat (usually held in November). Our 2020-21 Leadership Retreat Planning Committee has been working hard to make this year’s retreat a reality. They are Seniors Hava Bailey, Makhia Friedman, Patrick Gallagher, Chris Griggy, Claire Laux, Tanner McKown, Ryan Rhinehart, Taryn Thomas, and Andrew Valetta along with co-advisors Dr. Charles Bowman, Mrs. Christina Dreher-Rodesheim, and Mrs. Heidi Jurging.

This year marks the 35th retreat, and we are facing a multitude of challenges in our daily lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, we are implementing immense change in the structure and meaning of our retreat. We will be holding a completely virtual three-day conference on Saturday, January, 16, though Monday, January 18, in which we will continue to foster leadership and encourage growth in our students. As we brainstormed a focus for the retreat this year, we considered the many changes we are facing in our nation and communities — related to the pandemic, social justice, and daily living. The result of our discussions came our 2020-21 theme for the retreat: The Evolution of Leadership: Embrace the Change.
REGISTRATION IS LIVE:
One major change is the open registration to ALL students interested in attending. Any student can attend and should register today (through January 1) online and pay the $25 student fee, which covers the cost of our keynote speakers, a retreat goody bag, a student delegate workbook, and virtual access to all sessions. Students who register by December 10 will also be guaranteed a retreat t-shirt and water bottle.
