A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our staff would like to welcome you to the Roosevelt Elementary Team! For 98 years, Roosevelt has been serving our outstanding community, and we are honored to continue working with our Tiger families!

The Roosevelt team strives to provide the best education possible to every student in our classrooms. We commit to providing effective instruction, personalized learning, and support the “whole child” so that our students achieve their fullest potential. Additionally, we ensure that each child at our school feels welcomed, safe, connected, and a part of our Tiger family.

We welcome and encourage you to become involved in our learning community by volunteering in our classrooms, participating as a member of our Parent Teacher Organization, attending school events, or as an invested parent/guardian. Please come in and learn more on how you can get involved.

Let’s have a great year! Thank you for choosing and entrusting our team with your child. Please feel free to contact me at 928-502-8150 or at aortega@yuma.org.
