About Us » Welcome


Welcome to the Roosevelt Elementary School website. I hope that you will find it useful in getting to know our school.

Roosevelt Elementary School is an extraordinary school with a long-standing tradition of excellence.  Children are greeted each day by a staff of dedicated and caring teachers, secretaries, custodians and administration who work together to create a warm and nurturing environment for each and every child.

We are the largest elementary school in McPherson with approximately 350 students in grades Pre–K through five. Another unique aspect of Roosevelt is its class structure. It is the only building in the McPherson school district to implement the looping design. The Roosevelt parents are an integral part of the school community. Thanks to their efforts, our Kdg., first, second, third, fourth and fifth grade classrooms are equipped with Promethean Boards to enhance interactive instruction. We believe that today's digital learners must have the tools to be successful in the 21st century.

In educating the whole child, it is our goal to guide youngsters socially and emotionally as well as academically. To accomplish this, Quantum Learning's 8 Keys of Excellence are actively taught to help RES students embody traits that lead to positive behavior, added confidence and increased motivation.

Louis Pasteur once wrote, "When I approach a child, he inspires in me two sentiments; tenderness for what he is and respect for what he may become." It is with tenderness and respect that we welcome all children to Roosevelt Elementary School. If you have any questions or comments regarding our school, please contact me at [email protected].
