Reflections on the 2012-13 School Year
Roosevelt Elementary School has a great foundation on which to build our educational plan and school community: our students, parents, staff and Port Angeles community partners. We have a community that tirelessly lends its support through special events, donations, and volunteerism to make it possible for our teachers and staff to continually provide a quality education for our children.
This past year, our students’ Measurement of Student Progress (MSP) scores demonstrated the following achievements:
Reading: Third grade: 78.5% at standard (19.1% increase); fourth grade: 82.5% at standard (4 year + trend); fifth grade: 76.4% at standard (3 year + trend), no gender gap; sixth grade: 80.8% at standard (4 year + trend), no significant gender gap, critical thinking strand at 87.5%.
Math: Third grade: 60% at standard (3 year + trend); sixth grade: 76.7% at standard (4 year + trend), no gender gap; increase in all strand areas.
Writing: 66.7% at standard (5.4% increase), above the state, 75.5% conventions, 73.6% Content, Organization, Style (17.3% increase).
Science: 80% at standard (+ 4 year trend, plus up10.6%); scores above the state.
Plans for the 2013-2014 School Year
Our goal is to create a learning community where every student is receiving excellent instruction every day. We will partner with each other, parents, and community members to help each child be a successful learner.
Reading: Every child will receive 90 minutes of literacy instruction each day. We will use a RTI model to provide differentiated small group reading. Every classroom will help students understand and use comprehension strategies and test taking strategies so that students can show what they know on assessments. Teachers will work together to continue to build their understanding of Common Core.
Math: We are beginning our second year using enVisions. We will continue to strive for 60-90 minutes of daily math. Students will learn problem solving and math fact strategies so that they can successfully show their best math thinking.
Writing: Student will have writing instruction 4/5 days a week with teachers integrating writing across all content areas. Authors will be brought in to model the writing process and love of writing.
Science: Teachers will follow the district FOSS science kit schedule focusing on the scientific process. School wide, hands on science learning opportunities will be provided to all students through community partnerships.
Assessment will be used to guide instruction. Goals have been set for this year to meet the annual measurable objectives for the MSP. Our assessment results increased in 2013 in every area except fifth grade math. Formative assessments will be used throughout the year to monitor student progress and differentiate instruction.
Annually, the School District provides opportunities for professional development to enhance capacities to close student achievement gaps defined by demographic attributes. The School District will also continue regularly scheduled collaborative time so teachers can support each other in understanding student achievement data and its connection to instructional strategies, curriculum and assessment.Additionally, Roosevelt certified staff will participate in a Pathways of Common Core book study; paraeducators will take part in a book study; the Positive Behavior Intervention Support implementation team will take part in a two-day training with Dr. Greg Benner; guest teachers will provide teacher release time for DRA/ARI/WAKids assessment; and certificated staff will participate in peer observations of other teachers for increased curriculum understanding and building of instructional skills.

How You Can Help
Roosevelt is committed to the goal of providing quality education for every child. To this end, we will continue to partner with parents, our PTA, the Port Angeles Education Foundation, YMCA and Boys and Girls Club. We will look to increase our number of parent volunteers and those from Independent Bible Church and First Presbyterian Church.
Everyone gains if Roosevelt staff and our community work together to promote high achievement by our children. Parents play an extremely important role as children’s first teachers. Support for their children and for the school is critical to children’s success every step along the way. Our goal is a school-home partnership that will help all students to succeed. Finally, we wish to extend invitations to all of our educational and community partners, but most importantly to our parents, to share your thoughts, ideas, and what ifs. Together we will help all of our students be successful.
