RCI Rodriguez HS gathers parents of the millennials for a seminar

By: Trisha Mae M. Salen

The best thing that parents could give their children is their precious time. Nowadays, parents somehow neglect giving the much needed time to their children. Most of them focus their attention in office and business work. This oftentimes results  in conflict between a parent and a child. This issue was the focus of the Grades 7 and 8 Parents’ Seminar on September 24, 2016 at the RCI Rodriguez Audio-Visual Room.

With the theme, “Parenting the Millennials,” the activity aimed to develop and foster smooth relationship between parents and their children.  The resource speakers were Bro. Gregorio Cayetano, the BEC Coordinator and Servant Leader in Most Holy Rosary Parish, and   Vice President of RCI Rodriguez Alumni Association, Maria Theresa Pacatang. Both speakers shared their knowledge and wisdom on parenting to help parents guide their millennial children. They also gave advice on how parents and children could understand each other during different times. A big majority of the Grades 7 and 8 parents  participated in the activity.  Academic supervisor Leonila Santos welcomed the parents and RCI Rodriguez campus head Carmencita Alcantara extended gratitude to the parents and encouraged them to take to heart the resource persons’ sharing.

RCI holds web administration and management session among campus heads

Roosevelt College, Inc. (RCI) campus heads and their IT staff were convened for a session on website administration and management on November 19, 2016 at RCI Cainta College Computer Laboratory. Aligned with improvements being implemented by the management, the activity primarily aimed to equip the website focal persons in RCI campuses with skills in uploading materials (articles, photos  or videos) on the RCI official website (www.rooseveltcollege.edu.ph) to be vetted by the website administrator.  Moreover,  the session was intended to familiarize the participants with other technical considerations that impact on web management.

Tertiary Education and Graduate School Dean, Dr. Aldrin Darilag, in his welcome message, encouraged everyone to collaborate, communicate and be wired within the academic network.  He underscored the activity as a good jumpstart to showcase the highlights and best practices of RCI in line with revitalizing its curricular programs as well as emergent opportunities that RCI could offer in the academic community.

At the end of the activity, the group came up with agreements on updating their respective websites. RCI has 5 campuses, namely Cainta, Cubao, Marikina, Rodriguez and San Mateo.

Mr. Angelito Lerit, college professor and chair of the Institute of Computer Studies, served as the session’s resource person.

By: Vienn Nicole DC. Ocampo

Love for the country, its language, culture, and tradition, reflects one’s patriotism and nationalism. Rooseveltians find a very special way to express their love for the country and the Filipino language by showing their talents and skills during the “Buwan ng Wika” celebration on August 26, 2016.

With the theme “Filipino: Wika ng Karunungan,” students brought out their creativity through the Slogan and Poster Making Contest.  Others showed their wit through short stories or the E-kwento at the Genyo Laboratory Room. On September 1, the most anticipated part of the celebration, the “Itug-tog mo, Isasayaw ko” and “Tunog Tao” took place. Through music and their grooves, students expressed what their hearts wanted which amazed the audience. The celebration culminated with the awarding ceremony in the school AVR where the victors were awarded with certificates and tokens by RCI Rodriguez Campus Head, Carmencita V. Alcantara.

RCI Rodriguez celebrates Nutrition Month

By: Sebastian S. Garcia

On  July 28, 2016, Roosevelt College Rodriguez celebrated the annual Nutrition Month Celebration. With the theme “First 1000 Days ni Baby Pahalagahan para sa Malusog na Kinabukasan,” the TLE and ICT Department merged and created once again a successful event.

On the first day of the week-long  celebration, right after the assembly, the students showed how graceful they were in  Zumba. Selected students from each grade level demonstrated their unique dance steps and moves. The teachers, the staff, the students, and even the school directress,  Carmencita V. Alcantara, joined the Physical Fitness Program that aimed to emphasize the importance of having a physically fit body.

On the following days, Entrepreneurship, another activity prepared by the TLE and ICT Department, was done by each grade level. The students transformed themselves into salesmen and saleswomen as they sold their homemade products around the school.

On Thursday, July 28, loud cheers were heard and huge banners were seen around the school quadrangle as the students gave their support to their classmates competing in the annual Nutri-Jingle Contest. Each group gave their best shot and showed both the audience and the judges that they deserved to win.

RCI Marikina on FEU campus tour: “Overwhelming and memorable”

 

Such was the impression of Roosevelt College, Inc. (RCI) Marikina faculty from the Elementary and Secondary Education Departments on their campus tour in FEU Manila on September 20, 2016. “We learned about the facts, stories and even trivia about the different buildings and structures in the campus,” they added. But what caught their attention was the library whose facilities amazed them. “This is one of our dreams for our pupils and students at RCI. We look forward to the improvement of our facilities, just like FEU’s,” they shared.

Their enjoyable experience in the school was captured in photos below:

FUN FACT: Did you know why the tiles are different? It’s because on the right side FEU is located in Sampaloc, Manila and on the left side, it’s in Quiapo, Manila. Who said you can’t be in two places at once?

Reunion of sorts: RCI teachers accidentally bumped into two former students of Roosevelt College who are now studying in FEU - Lorelyn Diaz (3rd from left) and Angelica Mailed (4th from left). Both graduated in SY 2015-2016.
