Dear Students, Parents, and Friends of Theodore Roosevelt High School,
Welcome Spring! We know April was a very busy month for testing, which creates a great deal of pressure for our students. In the past few years, we have spent a lot of time creating a schedule and determining the best way to test all students. We feel now that in the future we can focus more on making the testing process less intense. While state testing is going on, students are still expected to continue to learn and be accountable in their other classes. Hopefully, our future efforts will help alleviate some stress and anxiety.
May is a time for celebration, and for many students, this month marks the beginning of many new and challenging opportunities.
On Thursday, May 2, Roosevelt will host our first E3 Signing Day of the Class of 2019! On this day the senior class will announce their future plans by signing letters of commitment to the 3 E’s: Employment, Enlistment, or Enrollment. This should be an exciting day for all of our students to reveal where they are headed. We are so proud of their achievements!
We are excited to announce that Kent City Schools will be hosting the state qualifying Special Olympics meet in track at the Stanton track on Saturday, May 4. Members of the Kent Special Olympic Team are current TRHS students including, Brendan Casey, Jacob Haggerty, Spencer Morneweck, Daniel Smolk, Michael Smolk, Nate Smolk, and Josh Spisak. TRHS graduate team members include Bilal Alexander, Teddy Carlson, Damian Diroll, Laura Smith, Austin Starkey, and Kelly Woodward. Current Stanton students participating are Drew Camara and Brady Liske. The event begins at 9:00 a.m. with a parade of athletes led by the Roosevelt Band. Many of our students and staff will be among the 250 volunteers needed to make this special day a success.
On Tuesday, May 7, we will be celebrating our students as we host our Scholar and Achievement Awards Program & Reception beginning at 7:00 p.m.. We recognize students with a 3.5 grade point average or above for the current school year and seniors who have received local scholarships provided by local businesses, organizations, and families associated with Roosevelt. Over $68,000 worth of scholarships will be awarded to approximately 50 seniors. Additionally, we recognize underclassmen who are receiving awards for leadership, service, and/or activities awards/recognition. We are extremely proud of all our students, and whether or not your student is earning an award or a scholarship, this is a great and inspiring event for everyone.
On Wednesday, May 8, we will be hosting our Career and Technical Education Passport Program and Reception. Over 160 students will be earning their passports. Many, if not all of these students, will be seeking post-secondary opportunities with the advantage of already having two years of experience in their chosen fields.
At our final senior informational assembly a few days ago, staff members selected by the senior class officers spoke to the class. Their messages included many meaningful and inspirational thoughts and suggestions. Students were reminded that last impressions are equally important as first impressions and to be present in the moment and enjoy it. They were encouraged to take risks, make an effort to meet new people, and always remember to thank the people who love and support them. Our entire Roosevelt staff couldn’t be more proud of our seniors and we are excited to celebrate with them on their graduation day.
Two days after graduation, the students in grades 9-10-11 will take their final exams. 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.
On a concerning note, vaping/juuling has become a major issue for adolescents throughout our country. We are worried that some of our students are already addicted, leading them down the road to an unhealthy lifestyle. We have attached some resources that may help in understanding and dealing with this health scourge. We are also looking at collecting data and creating a brief survey to be completed by our students so we have some baseline data for the next school year.
The month of May marks the culmination of many school activities. There are a number of musical and vocal performances and art shows. Spring sports participants will be preparing for postseason tournaments. We know our students are excited and anxious for summer break but please remember how important it is to finish the academic year on a strong note.
