… but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
Dear Saint Robert Community,
Time for Parent Teacher Conferences! We are very excited to meet with you. As if turns out, Friday is the busiest conference day, so we will have to work hard to stick to the schedule. Thank you for your cooperation and help with this.
Along with the beginning of conferences we are looking forward to a delicious Nonni’s Pizza Friday. We thank Julie Cress and her many wonderful volunteers for this tasty, fun event.
Friday is also our annual SR Spellathon Fundraiser. Every class will be putting their spelling skills to the test. Pledges that were received by last Friday have been included for raffle prizes. So far we have given out 18 prizes, including Giants gear of all types and Target gift cards. There are many more prizes on the way. Please make sure to send in your pledges if you haven’t already. This is always a fun time for the students. Thank you!
Our 8th graders had a wonderful time at their CYO retreat last week. Thank you to our community who prayed for their safe and spiritual time together. It is definitely a memory they will never forget. We are blessed to have had our chaperones, Mr. Fox, Mr. Cilia, Mrs. Hoff, and Mrs. Bibat, as well as our Coordinator, Ms. Bartolotti.
Just a reminder that parents, who are expecting to apply for siblings in the 2018-19 Kindergarten year, need to let Mrs. Grealish know, allowing us to plan for assessments and scheduling. Students will need to be 5 years old by September 1, 2018. Thank you so much, we are excited to find out who is coming.
God Bless You and Your Families,
Spellathon – Last call! Don’t forget to turn in your Spell-a-Thon pledges! Our Spell-a-Thon takes place this Friday.

Nonni’s Pizza - On November 10, join us in the cafeteria for another tasty lunch of Nonni’s Pizza. Right after school (12:00), we will be serving up hot and delicious pizza- $3 a square or $5 for 2 squares. If your child is at extension, they can order too. All proceeds go towards counting to beautify our school through interactive paintings on the school yard. At the event, purchase a rock ($5) or another rock to honor of a loved one, your family, God, or for a special memory. Then paint it (at home) and return it to the butterfly garden. Please RSVP by November 9th using the flyer in the attachments to ensure that we make enough pizza for all those who want to fill their tummies. For questions, please contact Julie Cress (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Light the Night – Thank you to all who participated in the Light the Night for cancer awareness. Part of the night included a prayer walk for our SR 8th grade teacher, Mrs. McNichol, and several of you also signed a beautiful quilt created by Terry Castelton .
