Post-Election Support Website — REPOST

The information below is a reposting of information (originally from November 2) regarding recent elections.

You may view Post-Election Support Website for more information and resources.

===========

Theodore Roosevelt High School has been in existence for nearly 100 years. Over the years, Roosevelt students have witnessed many presidential elections. This presidential election has caused quite a division throughout our country. People have intense feelings about the election and those who support the losing candidate may be disappointed.

Regardless of who is elected president, it is important for all of us to remember, we are all responsible for creating the best possible learning environment for all of our students. To that end, we will continue to promote the following expectations after the election:

  • We will continue to respect each other in a kind peaceful manner.
  • We will continue to act with integrity and always do what is right.
  • We will continue to be dedicated to making Roosevelt a place where everyone feels safe.
  • We will continue to strive for excellence. We will be better today than we were yesterday.
  • We will continue to be responsible for our actions and be accountable for our mistakes.
  • We will continue to be of service to each other in our times of need.

The people who comprise our learning community are strong and resilient. We have confidence that when we work together, we have the ability to be good. When we love each other, we can be great! In the words of famed historian and author, John Meacham, “In our finest hours . . . the soul of our country manifests itself in an inclination to open our arms rather than to clench our fists; to look out rather than to turn inward; to accept rather than to reject.”

We will have special election counseling services available this week and in the following weeks to any of our students who require it. There are also resources available to the community. Those resources are posted on the Post-Election Support website.

Sincerely,
Dennis Love, Principal

Happy New Year, Seniors!
This is YOUR year — the Class of 2021.

You’re finally a senior — but the year is turning out to be much different than any of us expected. Living in this time of a pandemic, our senior experience has completely shifted. So more than ever, WE WANT TO KNOW WHICH EVENTS are important to you.

We encourage you to get involved, even now! Seek out your Class Advisors (Mrs. Knight and Mrs. Watt), your Class Officers (Brandon Harvey, Patrick Gallagher, Claire Laux, Emma Meyer), Class Counselor (Mrs. Skvarch), or TRHS Student Activities Coordinator (Mrs. Jurging) for important senior class information or with any questions or thoughts about the remainder of the year!

Finish strong, Class of 2021!
Sincerely,  Your Class Advisors, Class Officers, Counseling Office, & Student Activities Office
