Roosevelt Students "Celebrated Reading" the week of March 25. Every morning there was a mystery reader and the students had to use their best detective work to figure out which staff member was reading. The students also participated in "Drop Everything and Read," which meant at a certain time of the day, Mrs. Brown would announce for the whole school to stop whatever they were doing and read for a bit. Dressing up as a favorite book character was was done by all, including the staff. All classroom doors were decorated according to the teacher's favorite book. On the last day of the week, the entire school participated in a balloon launch. Each classroom sent about 10 balloons up to the sky. Each balloon carried a tag which asked the finder to complete a few questions about his/her favorite book and mail it back to us. The students received replies from as far away as Core and Clarksburg, West Virginia.Roosevelt Elementary was one of thirty-five schools that sent artwork to the Summit County Art Show held at the Portage Lakes Career Center in Green.
