Principal's Message:

Good afternoon, Teddy families,

This week we kicked off our Club Fair with students showing interest in dozens of possible clubs, we began our celebration of Hispanic/Latine Heritage Month with food and dance last night, we welcomed 9th grade families to our Curriculum night, and we celebrated our first full week of school.

While students and staff are going home tonight exhausted, please also know that we are overflowing with excitement for this school year. Already, students have shown up eager to learn, embodying school spirit, and, genuinely being respectful of one another.

At Roosevelt, we often use the phrase, "Be RHS" - which reminds students to be Respectful, Honorable, and Safe.

BE RESPECTFUL- Have a positive attitude towards myself, others, the school, and learning. Attend school regularly and on time.
BE HONORABLE- Know and respect all school and classroom rules, and take responsibility for your actions, always seeking to do better.
BE SAFE- Do my best in class, at home, and in my community. 

We will return to these values over and over again in all that we do to ensure we show up as our best selves at Roosevelt and in the community.

Please remember that if you want to see pictures of the great things happening at Roosevelt, you can follow the social media sites below.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Principal Ledesma
Buenas tardes, familias Teddy,

Esta semana iniciamos nuestra Feria del Club con estudiantes que muestran interés en docenas de posibles clubes, comenzamos nuestra celebración del Mes de la Herencia Hispana / Latina con comida y baile anoche, dimos la bienvenida a las familias de 9º grado a nuestra noche de Currículo, y celebramos nuestra primera semana completa del colegio. 

Esta noche los estudiantes y el personal se van a casa agotados, pero también sepan que estamos rebosantes de emoción por este año escolar. Los estudiantes demuestran emocion por aprender, encarnando el espíritu escolar y, genuinamente, siendo respetuosos unos de otros.

En Roosevelt, a menudo usamos la frase "Be RHS", que recuerda a los estudiantes que deben ser respetuosos, honorables y seguros. 

SÉ RESPETUOSO- Tener una actitud positiva hacia mí mismo, hacia los demás, la escuela y el aprendizaje. Asista a la escuela regularmente y a tiempo. 
SÉ HONORABLE- Conoce y respeta todas las reglas de la escuela y el aula, y asume la responsabilidad de tus acciones, siempre buscando hacerlo mejor. 
SÉ SEGURO- Haz lo mejor que pueda en clase, en casa y en mi comunidad. 

Volveremos a estos valores una y otra vez en todo lo que hagamos para asegurarnos de mostrarnos como lo mejor de nosotros mismos en Roosevelt y en la comunidad.

Recuerde que si desea ver fotos de las cosas maravillosas que suceden en Roosevelt, puede seguir los sitios de redes sociales a continuación.

Que tengan un buen fin de semana,

Director Ledesma
Galab wanaagsan, qoysaska Teddy,

Toddobaadkan waxaan ku bilownay bandhiggeena naadiga annagoo ardayda muujinaaya xiisaha ay u qabaan daraasan kooxo suuragal ah, waxaan bilownay dabaaldegyada bisha hiddaha/Latine ee cunno iyo qoob ka ciyaarka habeenkii xalay, waxaan ku soo dhaweynay qoysaska fasalka 9-aad habeenkeena Manhajka, waxaana u dabaaldegnay toddobaadkii ugu horeeyay ee buuxa ee dugsiga. 

Iyadoo ardayda iyo shaqaalaha ay caawa guryahooda aadayaan iyagoo daallan, fadlan sidoo kale ogow in aan faraxa badan ku faraxnay sanad dugsiyeedkan. Durbaba, ardaydu waxay muujiyeen in ay aad u xiiseynayaan in ay wax bartaan, ayna muujiyaan ruuxda dugsiga, iyo, dhab ahaantii in qofba midka kale ixtiraamo.

At Roosevelt, waxaan inta badan u isticmaalnaa weedha ah, "Noqo RHS" - taas oo xasuusinaysa ardayda inay ixtiraamaan, Sharafta leh, iyo Ammaan. 

KA TAXADAR- Hayso dabeecad wanaagsan oo ku aadan aniga, dadka kale, iskuulka, iyo waxbarashada. Aad iskuulka si joogto ah iyo waqti dambeba. 
SHARAF- Ogow oo ixtiraama dhammaan xeerarka dugsiga iyo fasalka, mas'uuliyaddana ka saaran ficiladaada, marwalbana doonaya inaad wax ka wanaagsan sameyso. 
NOQO SAFE- Samee fasalka ugu fiican fasalka, gurigayga, iyo jaaliyadayda. 

Waxaan dib ugu soo laaban doonaa qiyamkaan marar badan dhammaan wixii aan sameyno si aan u hubino in aan u soo muuqanno inaan nahay nafteena ugu wanaagsan ee Roosevelt iyo bulshada dhexdeeda.

Fadlan xusuusnow hadii aad rabtid in aad aragto sawirada waxyaabaha waa weyn ee ka dhacaya Roosevelt in aad la socoto baraha bulshada ee hoos ku yaala.

Lake Street Works

Lake Street Works is a 12-month trades and life skills after school workforce development program for low-income 11th and 12th grade students in South Minneapolis. The program is hands-on, offers a paid-stipend, and focuses on soft skills training in addition to introducing participants to carpentry, electrical, plumbing and HVAC industries.

Students attend classes 2 nights a week from 5 PM to 8 PM.​
The evening starts with a meal, then training in construction and life skills.
Students are paid $30 per class. The payments are deposited into students’ debit accounts monthly. (LSW helps set up debit accounts for each student.)
The program starts July 11 and goes through June 15, 2023.
High School Seniors graduate from Lake Street Works in June 2023 and can qualify for a paid internship with a contractor or receive a scholarship to go to Dunwoody Technical College.
High School Juniors continue in LSW until June 15 of 2024. 
By learning at Lake Street Works this summer, students can earn approximately $420 in stipends and $210 in an investment account. During the year they can learn and earn even more!

Students (and their parents) should complete the following online application and their recruiter will follow-up with you. All students and their parents will be interviewed prior to being accepted to the program to assess the students’ interest and commitment to learning skills in the construction trades. Here is how you apply.

Instead of going to, go to Register and select Minneapolis Theodore Roosevelt High School Foundation as your charity. Each time you shop at the Foundation will receive a small percentage of your purchase.

By doing this you are helping give scholarships to Roosevelt students and grants to staff without it costing you a penny?

You just have to remember to go to instead of Amazon…..same merchandise, same prices, same service. Thank YOU!

20 hours of Service Per year is expected of every student, every year.

Check out these websites to come up with another idea.
(You can search by word, so if you are looking for an "art" based volunteering opportunity, or a "children" based opportunity, "senior citizen", etc.

If you have questions or need to turn hours in, please email [email protected]

If your student is doing their hours OUTSIDE of the school, please have them send in a paper that is signed, dated and phone number listed for the organization or person that they helped.
