A Message from Our Principal

Dear Roosevelt Middle School Parents and the District 88 Community,

As the new principal of Roosevelt Middle School, it is an honor as well as my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year! We are excited and enthusiastic to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and a passion for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our RMS family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be high school ready by the end of three years. At Roosevelt, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. We strongly believe that ALL students should graduate from middle school prepared for the demands of high school.

Our theme for the 2017-2018 school year is “Embracing Diversity While We Move Forward!” We decided to choose this as our theme to place special emphasis on our increasing level of student diversity and the importance of planning programs and activities that embraces and is inclusive of all students regardless of their various cultures, customs, or background experiences!

We hope that you find our updated website helpful, informative as well as transparent. Throughout the course of the 2017-2018 school year, we will be entering dates for all events and activities into our “calendar” feature of our website.

I look forward to meeting you at the many events we will be planning. I am humbled and honored to serve as principal of Roosevelt Middle School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where the board of education, parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic growth and our standard for excellence. Please feel free to contact me at 708-410-3906.

Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year at RMS, home of the Bulldogs!
