About Us » Our School

Our School

Roosevelt Elementary School serves a community of about 560 preschool through fourth grade students. We believe that all students have the full potential to reach any goal that they set out to accomplish.  The education that they receive at our school will support students to be caring, confident, and creative children.  

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 the 3R's:  Respect, Responsibility, and Relationships.  Students understand that they are to Respect themselves and others.  In addition, our students take Responsibility for their actions and learn from them.  Finally, students are taught that they benefit from building positive Relationships with one another.  This will help students become productive citizens who will have a positive effect on our society.  


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 to our school and community.
