Superintendent and Principal
Roosevelt Public School
Students and staff celebrated Earth Day on Thursday, April 20, by attending an opening assembly about birds of prey and then spending the day learning about our trails in Roosevelt, wildlife and plastics, art, and the environment and gardening - in our own school garden!
Mr. Santanello, Mrs. Gazzani and resident Diane Lowrie were the planners of our day and worked in partnership with the Roosevelt Environmental Commission, the PTA, the NJ State Park Service and AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassadors. We were happy to have Mary Tulloss and Steve Taylor join us in our garden and in helping our students plant trees. At the end of the day, each student went home with a sapling and a hand painted penguin rock and lots of information on how to take care of our environment.
Graduation is fast approaching. Please put June 10 on your calendars - for graduation and the 80th Anniversary Celebration of RPS. We are honored to have a member of the Roosevelt Family join us for the festivities; so please help us spread the word to alumni and current and past residents of Roosevelt!
