<p>Roosevelt Elementary School is a kindergarten through sixth grade school that strives to "Show Respect, Make A Good Decision and Solve Problems." After a two-year pilot program, Roosevelt has implemented the Project Based Learning (PBL) program for the 2010-2011 school year school wide, which focuses on science and social studies.  Currently an expansion committee is seeking board approval to expand Roosevelt's PBL program to 8th grade beginning with the addition of 6th grade in the 2011/2012 school year followed by the addition of 7th and 8th grade over the next two consecutive years.</p>
<p>Roosevelt is very proud of their award winning teachers.  Roosevelt's Kindergarten team won the prestigious Kent Award for their Kindergarten literacy program.  In 2011, second grade teacher Sigrid McCarthy was awarded San Mateo County's Dorothy Boyajian Honored Teacher Award which honors teachers who reflect the teaching role of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is awarded to a teacher  who inspires students in the areas of justice, understanding, civic engagement and diversity awareness and  who helps to foster a commitment to community building.</p> <p>Students can check out resources from the award-winning library and computer lab to keep pace with the increasingly tech-savvy world. The library's Accelerated Reader program assesses students' comprehension level by quizzing students on the books they read. Also beginning in the 2011/2012 school year, students in grades K through 5 will have the opportunity to use JiJi Math, after the school was awarded a grant to utilize the MIND Institute's software. Students will learn mathematical concepts through spatial and temporal reasoning.</p>
