Dear Roosevelt Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome all new and returning students and families to the 2016-2017 school year! We are excited to build on our success from last year and continue making sure that Roosevelt is on the Rise. Last year’s graduating class was one of the biggest in recent history. Our graduates earned nearly $6 million in scholarship and received dozens of local, state, and national awards. We are one of only two schools in the entire state that had three Gates Millennium Scholars last year. We are confident that this year’s Riders will find similar success.
We are excited to start using parts of the new campus. Although the 1921 building will be off limits, we will have access to the new Gymnasiums, Library, Career Technical Education (CTE) classrooms, Art Classrooms, and more. We are thrilled about the new learning opportunities these spaces will create. We also look forward to hosting home athletic events, school assemblies, and dances. The new Auditorium, Band Room, and Cafeteria will open after Winter Break in January 2017.
Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
