Good Day, 

As we head into winter break, we want to wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday. Enjoy the break and we look forward to seeing you virtually back at school on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.  We want to wish you a safe and wonderful Winter break. May the holiday you celebrate be filled with joy and surrounded with love and health.  

For those families that have chosen a new learning platform, that platform will begin on Tuesday, the fifth of January.  While we will all  still be remote that first week, if you have been approved for that switch, you will join your new teacher on Tuesday.  You will receive communication from the school regarding your new teacher and confirmation regarding that change of platform.   

Happy Holidays!

Trich, Erik and Katheryn

Shakespeare Club is back!

In this virtual (FREE!) enrichment, Bill Roberts’ students in 3rd – 5th grade will be given the amazing opportunity to participate in the 37th Annual DPS Shakespeare Festival, and perform scenes from some of Shakespeare’s most famous works!

Shakespeare Club will be held every Friday, beginning December 11th, from 1:30pm to 2:30pm via Google Meets. 

While we’re going to have a TON of fun, it’s important to note that this is not a “drop-in” enrichment, but instead a formal rehearsal commitment for students excited to expand their theatrical skills and knowledge of Shakespeare through skill-based games, activities, and group rehearsals.
