School History

Roth opened on January 17, 1985. It is located on a 11.98 acre site on Castlemont Lane in Bridgestone subdivision. The school was named after Henry and Ana Roth who came from Feudingen, Germany. The family farmed and ranched on the property. They depended on cotton, timber, hay and cattle for their livelihood. Mr. Roth had a cotton gin and sawmill, and owned a railroad stop on the IC&N Railroad called Rotherwood.

She also encourages students and staff to participate in various programs such as No Place for Hate, Anti-Bullying Week, The Kindness Challenge, Red Ribbon Week and Paint the Community with Peace Week.

Roth’s PTO supports the faculty and staff and works closely with the administration to provide outstanding programs for our students. The school has Grandparent’s Day and an annual Tea along with family night activities.

Core Curriculum

Students use the StarBoard, computers and e-Instruction for hands-on math. Roth’s science lab offers students a chance to do projects and experiments, while History Alive allows for creative role playing and mapping of historical events.

Language Arts

In the elementary ELA program, the emphasis is on the development of fundamental reading and writing skills. Reading instruction includes training in phonics, structural analysis, sight word recognition, context clues, vocabulary development, comprehension, study skills, and literary appreciation. Writing instruction teaches students how to use written language appropriately. Instruction includes specific training in grammar, spelling, handwriting, word usage, punctuation, and capitalization, as well as more generalized training in composing written expressions. Skills in speaking and listening are also taught with the instruction for reading and writing.

The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation.
