Calling All 5th Grade Parents!
Come to a Virtual Bill Roberts Middle School Mixer on November 12th! MS Mixers are informal gatherings with Dr. Cohen hosted by a current MS parent during which we enjoy a mix of fun, drinks and MS discussion. This adult-only evening is open to current 5th grade Bill Roberts parents/guardians.
These events will now be held through zoom. We are still limiting the number to ten to keep it small to make it easier to ask questions, etc. We know this limits the number of people that can attend. We will be add more mixers soon! If you sign up, we will send you a zoom link for the event via email.
Space will be very limited. Learn more and RSVP HERE!

Annual Middle School Wreath Fundraiser
It is hard to believe, but the holidays are just around the corner. In past years, the middle school has sponsored a wreath fundraiser for 8th grade students to raise money for their final 8th grade trip. Even though there are not going to be trips this year we wanted to keep the tradition of this holiday fundraiser! Here is how it will work this year:
As we have in previous years, we are offering beautiful hand tied 20” wreaths from Nick’s Garden Center!
To order go to My SchoolBucks and log in and then go to the school store. The wreath will be a featured product on the first page. If you do not have a My SchoolBucks account feel free to drop off a check at the front desk. Just write “wreath fundraiser” in the memo line.
Wreaths will cost $27 each.
Place your order by Nov 17th and they will be ready to pick up at school on Friday Dec 4th.
All money raised will go the middle school!
Library Books Checkout
Library book checkout is back for in-person students K-2 and remote students!
Place up to 3 books on hold in our online catalog. Holds will be delivered to homeroom classrooms for in-person students. Remote students can get their selected books from a labeled bin outside of the BR front doors M-F, 8:30am-3:30pm. An email will be sent when the books are ready to be picked up.
In person students can return their books to a bin outside their classroom door and virtual students can return their books to the bin in front of the school doors. Returned books will sit in the DPS-recommended quarantine for seven days and then be wiped down before recirculating.
Questions/concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
