Bridgeport Public Schools Mission Statement
EFFORTS TO REDUCE RACIAL, ETHNIC, AND ECONOMIC ISOLATION
Roosevelt School's community continues to participate in numerous activities and events, which provide our students with a myriad of learning experiences and opportunities which facilitate awareness of diversity while fostering positive interaction among other students. During the school year of 2008-2009, the following projects were realized.
-Youth as Resources: students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades continue representing our school at RYSAP youth conferences promoting student involvement in projects advocating and promoting non-violence, safe schools and community improvement.
-Fairfield University Talent Search- provided our students in grades 6 through 8 with targeted tutorials in mathematics and science throughout the school year. Students were also taken on field trips to museums, craft shows, etc. in an effort to reinforce academic talent in math and science.
-GEAR UP/MAXX Program- provided an on site counselor who worked diligently to motivate seventh grade students. The representative provided individual counseling, group activities and rewarding activities for all participants. At a district level GEAR UP/MAXX end of the year conference, our Roosevelt Rockers won trophies for having the MOST SCHOOL SPIRIT and for obtaining second place in the Talent Show.
-The University of Bridgeport, one of our business partners, provided Roosevelt School with ten work study students on a weekly basis who provided consistent tutorials for our students during and after school.
