About Us » Our School

Our School

Roosevelt Elementary School serves a community of about 650 kindergarten through fourth grade students. We believe that all students can and will learn and succeed, and we provide the tools necessary so all students can reach their fullest potential.

At Roosevelt, we emphasize a strong character and encourage students to do what’s right—no matter the situation. We integrate Character Counts lessons into our daily instruction and teach the six pillars of good character on a regular basis.

We promote success in reading through Accelerated Reader and utilize intervention programs like Reading Mastery to provide the support and reinforcement some students need. We have a variety of other programs to help foster the success of our Roughriders.

Our Mission

The Roosevelt Elementary staff is dedicated to providing the students of Tulare with maximum opportunities to succeed in school and to become lifelong learners. At Roosevelt Elementary, we believe that all students can learn and succeed. Our challenge at Roosevelt Elementary is to accept the responsibility that we control the conditions in the educational setting that foster success while continuing to foster the three-way partnership among parents, students, and teachers. This will ensure that the students of Roosevelt Elementary grow to become responsible, contributing members of our society.
