Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.Colossians 3:13

Dear Saint Robert Community,

Once again we enjoyed an incredible Grandparents/Special Person’s Day. Thank you to all who participated. To Jill Penna and her wonderful team of mothers who coordinated, decorated and served this event, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless You.

This week is Red Ribbon Week. We are proud to be a drug free school, and strive to keep it that way. Each day has been a special day themed around taking pride in staying away from drugs, and students are encouraged to wear their red ribbons each day. Thank you to Mrs. McHale for organizing this week.

Harper For Kids visited us yesterday for the “kick-off” assembly for the Pyramid of Success, Character Building/No Bully program. As mentioned at Back to School Night, this is a program based on the philosophies of UCLA Coach John Wooden, who’s faith in God was strong, and who appreciated the talents of everyone. He believed you should work very hard to be your personal best. Please talk to your students about the assembly.

Thank you again for all that you do as a community. Go Bears!

God Bless You and Your Families,
Mrs. Wright

Essays will be judged on the student’s ability to articulate his or her understanding of issues, the message of the Catholic Church in relation to those issues, his or her own personal commitment to implementing the Church’s message and creativity. Last year we had a couple winners in this contest, so I hope this year to do the same.
