Choir students from Roosevelt Magnet School competed in the Illinois Grade School Music Association (IGSMA) District contest this past Friday. Mrs. Beverly Stenoish and Ms. Morgan Hansmeier prepared three separate choral groups for this annual event. They were all accompanied by Mrs. Dawn Clark. The newly reformed 5th grade magnet students brought home first place medals and ratings in their two groups, a 5th/6th grade choir and an all 5th grade swing choir (singing and dancing combined). The 7/8th grade choir brought home a second place ranking. Roosevelt Magnet is the only district grade school to compete in this event. It is a great deal of hard work, and a great accomplishment. The directors would like to thank our parents, administration, and our district for all of their support.

On Tuesday, November 8, Peoria county voters will consider whether to support The Peoria County School Facilities Sales Tax. If approved by voters, the ½% sales tax would generate $9 million annually to be shared among all Peoria County public school districts, based on enrollment. The Peoria Public Schools would receive approximately $4.2 million annually. The revenue is to be used specifically for school building improvements. The Peoria Public Schools building and grounds staff has assessed the needs of each building in the District. Here is the plan for Roosevelt Magnet School.
The vision of Roosevelt Magnet School is to prepare our students today for the world tomorrow through academics, character, and the Arts. During the 2015-2016 school year Roosevelt Magnet School will continue its focus and dedication to the Arts. Roosevelt will maintain ten full-time Arts teachers during the 2015-2016 school year. Additionally, Roosevelt will increase the Arts staff with an additional part-time Arts teacher to meet the needs of our students. Students who attend Roosevelt Magnet School are provided the opportunity to participate in a variety of Arts throughout the school day. Please view our brochure to read additional information about the Arts offerings at Roosevelt Magnet School.
The mission of Roosevelt Magnet School, as an innovative fine arts academy, is to ensure that each student develops to his or her academic, artistic and personal potential by integrating the arts and technology within a safe, nurturing environment, which embraces diversity in partnership with families and the community.
