Dear Roosevelt Families, 

ShanninPetersIt is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Roosevelt Elementary School. As a product of the Allentown School District, I am thrilled to continue my career in education as your new principal and am eager to begin serving this amazing school community. 

At Roosevelt Elementary, we are committed to creating a school environment that is safe, nurturing, and engaging. We set high expectations for ALL students and focus on providing each student with the individual skills needed for them to reach their own goals and to show academic growth. This can be accomplished by helping ALL students reach their full potential by ensuring students’ needs are met academically, emotionally, mentally, and physically. As a community school, we strive to give our students and their families access to programs, resources, and services that will enhance their educational experience and create a meaningful home-school partnership. With the continued collaboration of our community partners, parents, students, teachers, and staff members, we can be sure to reach and serve Every Student, Every Day.
