Two-Year Strategic Vision for Roquemore Elementary
Roquemore Elementary will achieve “Recognized” status within the next two years. In order for this to happen, it will require help from local businesses, corporations, sports teams and the surrounding
neighborhoods. The following suggestions will help bring together the
necessary support and tools needed for the children to develop healthy attitudes towards school which will result in benefitting them both mentally and physically. When their school becomes the most exciting place to be, the children will look forward to being present every day and will be inspired to not only take pride in their school, but will work harder to achieve worthy goals for themselves.
Teachers and the administration will make a commitment to give their support for a learning garden which will also involve the surrounding community for its maintenance and for sharing in the food it will produce. More outdoor fitness and athletic equipment will be
installed which would include not only two new basketball goals at the end of a cemented area adjacent to the school gym, but there will be playground fitness equipment covered by a shade structure near the swing sets. The open playing field will have soccer goals, a baseball diamond with a backstop and an area provided to throw a football.
People living in the surrounding community will be encouraged to take a personal interest in the school by going through an AISD background check in order to serve as mentors and readers at the
school on a regular basis, even if it is only once a month.
Community volunteers will also serve as chaperones for field trips when they are needed.
The school will maintain a list of inspirational speakers that can be called upon for appropriate events. Child care volunteers will be on hand to take care of small children in the gymnasium when a program is planned for the parents, such as seeing their children perform in an event. The step dancing program will be continued as well as the special field trips planned through Title One funding. A PTA will be organized and will serve as a vital link between the parents, the community and the teachers in helping to implement a new vision for Roquemore’s future.
