Immunization Requirement for 7th Grade
All students entering and transferring into 7th grade will need proof of a Whooping Cough Booster (Tdap) and 2 MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccines to register and start the school year at Washington Intermediate School.
Please make sure to check with your doctor's office to update your child's immunization card. Upon completion, present the updated card to the Roosevelt Health Office: School Nurse. Any delays will cause a hold to be placed on your child's registration for WIS.
Roosevelt Elementary is one of six elementary schools located in Dinuba, California. Our campus is home to almost 690 students in transitional kindergarten through grade six. We have a full-time academic program improvement (API) coach and Learning Director.

California is field testing a new website designed to help communities across the state access important information about K–12 districts and schools – including ours. Called the California School Dashboard (Coming March 15, 2017), the site features easy-to-read reports on multiple measures of school success.
This year at Roosevelt, we have a very special Ram in need of prayers and support. His story can be found in the 'Announcements' section of the Roosevelt home page. It is this particular story that spurred a group of law enforcement to take matters into their own hands. Dinuba police officers would work together and exemplify the true spirit of civic servants.
On December 16, the Jolly Trolley and its elves from the North Pole made their way around Dinuba visiting all the local elementary schools. The Choices and City Afterschool programs in conjunction with the Dinuba Chamber of Commerce were sponsoring the 'Stuff the Trolley' food drive.
Over the weekend we had some talented little elves from the Roosevelt Girl's Club, led by Erin Montes, represent our school in the Dinuba Christmas Parade. A big Roosevelt 'thank-you' to all the participating elves, big and small, who brought their smiles and decorating skills for this uniquely LightBright event.
Megan Rupe, Roosevelt Ram alumnus, just completed her first official day behind the news desk at CBS47. Roosevelt staff and students are very proud of Megan's accomplishments in televised media. You may know her dad Mr. Rupe, who teaches 5th grade in Room 26. Not too long ago, they used to work together to produce videos on the importance of being a good student. In Megan's case, her love for reading and writing has taken her into the professional world of journalism. She is truly a Ram role model.
This year's Raisin Day was an award winner! The Roosevelt Rams Biking Team put on another grand performance at the Raisin Day Parade.

A new year always starts with the excitement and desire to set new goals and the means in which to achieve them. Our January Rams in Focus provide perspectives on setting these kinds of goals from year one to that of the veteran. All three personalities exemplify what it means to be a Ram role model.
In the month of December, we recognize two veteran teachers from Roosevelt's inaugural year and a new teacher whose mission is reading improvement. All three of these Rams are excellent examples of what it means to truly give one's time and talents for others during this season of giving.
So many people to be thankful for at Roosevelt. In this month's Rams in Focus, we highlight staff who each have unique talents to draw the best out of students. In particular, we have people making moves from back East to stake out a new life story in Dinuba to the multitalented who add a spark to each school day.
In our first edition of Rams in Focus, we highlight two teachers who both have unique perspectives on the craft of teaching. One has served a veteran-number of years for our primary students while the other is just in the initial stages of her teaching career with the intermediate students. Take a look at these Ram teachers.
