Roosevelt Elementary School has been named a Great Expectations Model School for the 10th consecutive year.

The staff and students celebrated by releasing 10 balloons.

The basic principles of the program are high expectations for students; a learning climate based on mutual respect between student and teacher; student self-esteem; a belief that all students can learn; positive teacher attitude, and highly skilled and knowledgeable teachers who inspire and enable students to achieve success.

The GE program was founded by the late Charlie Hollar in 1991 and is a scientifically based research educational reform model that is bringing major change and innovation to PreK-12 public and private school classrooms.
