 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.  Colossians 3:15

Dear Saint Robert Community,

Conferences have gone well.  Thank you for taking the time to meet with your teachers.  Even though conferences this time of year seem short, it is amazing how much information you can share.  Just to have an open dialogue about your student is invaluable.

Thank you again to the Nonni’s Pizza crew.  The pizza is always delicious and the “restaurant” feel while eating and sharing with the community is so much fun.  It is enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to all of our pre-Spell a Thon raffle winners.  We had a least twenty winners for the early bird raffle who took home a variety of prizes, including iTunes gift cards, Target gift cards, and an incredible amount of Giants memorabilia.  Mrs. Wilson, and Mrs. Paton, with their many helpers, were busy correcting Spell aThon tests Friday afternoon.  If you made pledges for this fund raiser, your envelopes were returned to you on Monday.  Please send in your pledged collections before Thanksgiving.  Thank you!  I can’t wait to let you know how we did.

There will be no Wednesday Newsletter next week due to Thanksgiving.  I know when I give thanks for the blessings I have, you will be included.

God Bless You and Your Families
Mrs. Wright
