  • Coronavirus

    Hello Rider Families,

    As we learn more about the Coronavirus, it’s important to remember to wash your hands, cough in your elbow, and stay home if you have a fever.  The district, county health, and state are sharing information each day.  As more information is available, I will share it with you.  

    As we continue to learn new information about the spread of the virus, we need to remember to be compassionate and thoughtful as we talk about this illness. It has been reported that some students were joking about having the Coronavirus and other students overheard their conversation and became very concerned.  Please talk with your student about the fear and uncertainty this illness is bringing to our communities, and remind them that this is not something to joke about.  Right now, there are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus in any Portland Public School.

    More importantly, our Asian students are reporting an increase in xenophobic and racist remarks and actions focused on them because of the location of the initial outbreak of the Coronavirus.  It is being reported that students are hearing remarks in the hallways and in classrooms.  We need to stand in solidarity with, and be active allies for, our Asian students right now.  This discrimination is something that is being reported in the news across the country and the world, so it is not isolated to Roosevelt. However, it is important that we ensure we are creating a safe space for our Asian students and families and we do as much as possible to create a safe school environment for all of our students.  

    We are working with our Asian students to find ways to support them at this time, and we hope you will talk with your student about the importance of being an ally to groups who are facing discrimination.   APANO - an organization that focuses on the Asian Community in Oregon stated it best in their recent email message - “As we face the serious challenge of coronavirus, we urge our community to come together to combat misinformation with facts, to fight fear with compassion, and most of all, to care for those who need it most in this moment.”

    I appreciate our celebration of diversity at Roosevelt, and I know, as Riders, we can come together to be allies for all students no matter their race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or ability status.  Thank you for being allies for our Asian students. And thank you for being Riders!

    Dear families,

    So much is happening at Roosevelt right now!  We had AVID students head to the OSU extension campus in downtown Portland to have a “first day of college” experience with students from Wilson and Grant.  Our Emergent Bilingual students attended the International Youth Leadership Conference with students from around the district.  Our Unified Basketball team beat the Grant Generals in front of a packed gym at Grant. And, our Jazz Band went to Idaho for a band competition and received the highest honor - a Superior Rating at the festival.  Winter sports are wrapping up.  We narrowly missed the playoffs in boys’ basketball, and spring sports are just around the corner!  Make sure to get your tickets for Bring It On the Musical.  The show starts March 5th and runs for two weeks.  

    Thanks to all of the families that have supported their students to ensure they could access these amazing oppotunities.  I am so proud to be a Rider, and I feel so fortunate to be able to work with all of these amazing students!

    Go Riders!

    Dear families,

    It’s looking like spring!  The warmer weather has students leaving campus for lunch in larger numbers.  Remind your student that they represent Roosevelt while they are in the community.  Most students make great choices when they are out and about, but some students are leaving trash in the neighborhood, and a few neighbors are concerned about how that looks.  We are reminding students through announcements at school, but it’s always a good message to get from different adults in their lives. 

    SAT Day will be March 4th for all of our juniors.  If you have a junior, make sure they get a good night sleep and eat breakfast on that day.  March 4th is also an early dismissal, so all students will be heading home at 1:30.  Have a great week!

    Dear families,

    Congratulations to our wrestling and swimming teams for their participation at the district meets this weekend.  We had students place in districts in both sports, and we had a district champion in wrestling.   Thank you to all of you who have volunteered to take tickets, run concessions, and support our athletes this winter sports season.  If you want to help out, get in touch with Sanjay Bedi, our athletic director.  

    Over the past few weeks, some of our students have been involved in fighting both on and off campus (and during and after school).  As we work with students to ensure they are safe both at school and in the community, you all are important partners in making sure our students are making good decisions.  Talk with your student about how they navigate complicated situations and what they can do if they are having issues with other students.  Counselors, administrators, and teachers are all folks that students can talk to if they are struggling to figure out how to deal with hard situations.  Many of the issues start on social media, so talk with your student about responsible ways to interact with others online.  It takes all of us working together to ensure our students make good choices and stay safe.

    Listos para la Universidad, Enfocados en la Carrera, Comprometidos con un Mundo de Justicia.

    Estimadas familias:

    Tuvimos otra gran semana en Roosevelt. Nuestro musical de primavera "Bring It On" abrió esta semana. Todos los que lo han visto dicen que es una producción increíble. ¡No puedo esperar para verlo esta semana! Softbol tuvo su recaudación anual de fondos para el desayuno de panqueques. Gracias a todos los que vinieron a apoyar al equipo. Ya empezó esa época del año en que estamos comenzando a recibir información de las universidades y los comités de becas sobre admisión y dinero para el próximo año. Dos estudiantes de Roosevelt, Lisa y Abdi, recibieron la beca Dell, que cuesta $ 20,000 y una computadora. ¡Felicitaciones a los dos! Los deportes de primavera han comenzado, y tenemos más estudiantes que salen a practicar deportes en esta temporada. Estoy emocionada de poder salir afuera esta primavera para ver competir a nuestros estudiantes.

    ¡Adelante Jinetes!

    Listos para la Universidad, Enfocados en la Carrera, Comprometidos con un Mundo de Justicia.

    Estimadas familias,
    ¡En este momento están sucediendo muchas cosas en Roosevelt! Hicimos que los estudiantes de AVID se dirigieran al campus adjunto de OSU en el centro de Portland para tener una experiencia de "primer día de universidad" con estudiantes de Wilson y Grant. Nuestros estudiantes bilingües emergentes asistieron a la Conferencia Internacional de Liderazgo Juvenil con estudiantes de todo el distrito. Nuestro equipo de baloncesto unificado venció a los generales de Grant frente a un gimnasio repleto en Grant. Y nuestra banda de jazz fue a Idaho para una competencia de banda y recibió el honor más alto: una calificación superior en el festival. Los deportes de invierno están terminando. Por poco nos perdimos  los playoffs en el baloncesto masculino, ¡y los deportes de primavera están a la vuelta de la esquina! Asegúrate de conseguir tus entradas para Bring It On the Musical. El espectáculo comienza el 5 de marzo y dura dos semanas.  

    Gracias a todas las familias que han apoyado a sus estudiantes para garantizar que puedan tener acceso a estas increíbles oportunidades. ¡Estoy muy orgullosa de ser una Jinete, y me siento muy afortunada de poder trabajar con todos estos increíbles estudiantes!

    ¡Adelante Jinetes!

    Listos para la Universidad, Enfocados en la Carrera, Comprometidos con un Mundo de Justicia.

    Estimadas familias,
    ¡Parece como si fuera primavera! El clima más cálido hace que los estudiantes salgan en gran número del campus para almorzar. Recuerdele a su estudiante que representan a Roosevelt mientras están en la comunidad. La mayoría de los estudiantes toman buenas decisiones cuando están fuera de casa, pero algunos estudiantes tiran basura en el vecindario, y los vecinos están preocupados. Siempre se lo recordamos a los estudiantes a través de anuncios en la escuela, pero es bueno que también reciban este mensaje por parte de diferentes adultos en sus vidas. 

    El día del examen SAT será el 4 de marzo para todos nuestros estudiantes de onceavo grado. Si tiene un estudiante en este grado, asegúrese que duerma y desayune bien ese día. El 4 de marzo también es un dia de salida temprano, por lo que todos los estudiantes se irán a casa a la 1:30 pm. ¡Que tenga una buena semana! 

    ~ KD Parman, Directora

    Listos para la Universidad, Enfocados en la Carrera, Comprometidos con un Mundo de Justicia.

    Estimadas familias,
    Felicitaciones a nuestros equipos de lucha y natación por su participación en los encuentros del distrito este fin de semana. Tuvimos estudiantes que calificaron para el distritos en ambos deportes y tuvimos un campeón del distrito en lucha libre. Gracias a todos los que se han ofrecido como voluntarios para chequear boletos, dirigir Concesiones y apoyar a nuestros atletas esta temporada de deportes de invierno. Si quiere ayudar, póngase en contacto con Sanjay Bedy, nuestro director deportivo. 

    En las últimas semanas, algunos de nuestros estudiantes han estado involucrados en peleas tanto dentro como fuera de la escuela (y durante y después de la escuela). A medida que trabajamos con los estudiantes para garantizar que estén seguros, tanto en la escuela como en la comunidad, todos ustedes son partes importantes para garantizar que nuestros estudiantes hagan buenas decisiones. Hable con su estudiante sobre cómo manejar situaciones complicadas y qué pueden hacer si tienen problemas con otros estudiantes. Los consejeros, administradores y maestros son personas con las que los estudiantes pueden hablar si tienen dificultades para resolver cómo enfrentar situaciones difíciles. Muchos de los problemas comienzan en las redes sociales, así que hable con su estudiante sobre maneras responsables de interactuar con otros en línea. Es necesario que todos trabajemos juntos para garantizar que nuestros estudiantes hagan buenas decisiones y se mantengan seguros.

In addition, seven of these sites will now include once-a-week food pantry services for families that need groceries and other items that we previously offered at PPS school SUN sites.
