Roosevelt Math Team Competes in Virtual Competition
Posted by Amae Merrill on 5/7/2021
On Friday April 23 & Saturday April 24, Roosevelt Math Team competed in a virtual Math Olympiad competition held by the Washington State Mathematics Council & Mangahigh. This is Roosevelt's 5th year of having a math team. The Roosevelt Math Team was thrilled to compete this year, even though it was different, since last year was cancelled.
Roosevelt sent 26 students (8 teams) of 3rd-5th graders and their coach, Mrs. Merrill (3rd grade teacher) to the competition. Students also received a swag bag full of goodies to keep them energized through the competition.
Roosevelt math team spent 2,638 minutes on math for the weekend! Nice job Roosevelt Bears!
Roosevelt Bears share fun morning greetings with their teachers

Even in a pandemic, Roosevelt Bears share fun morning greetings with their teachers!
Each morning, when Mrs. Yvonne Ullas greets her 2nd-graders at the door, her students choose which greeting they want to share—all modified for physical distancing. Students can share an air high five, a peace sign, a dance, an air hug, or a simple friendly wave on their way into her classroom. Students choose their greetings from a poster illustrated with bitmojis shared by another YSD colleague.
Mrs. Ullas and our Roosevelt staff believe that physical distance doesn't have to mean social distance, and they've worked hard all year to build community, whether on-line or in person. We're so happy to have our Bears back together in hybrid learning!
