Gregg DeSpiegler, Principal
It takes a community to raise our children. Roosevelt is a warm and caring neighborhood school located in the 'Heart of Watertown'. We are concerned about giving our 300 Rough Riders a strong foundation in the basic subjects while still finding the time for activities that encourage special interests and talents.
Based from the Watertown School District's mission statement "Enabling students to succeed in an ever-changing world", the mission of our school is:
To provide a safe environment where high expectations, both academic and social, and respect for others are consistently communicated and role-modeled to our students and to develop an atmosphere that nurtures success for all.
To accomplish this mission, it takes the Roosevelt staff, students, parents, and community to be involved in the education process. Research supports the fact that students whose parents are actively involved in their child's school activities are more successful in learning and have positive attitudes towards school.
You are encouraged to visit our school. I believe you will find our Roosevelt community alive and well. On behalf of all the Rough Riders, I extend a warm and friendly 'WELCOME!'.
