Posted January 29, 2022
As February begins and Ground-hog Punxsutawney Phil gets ready to look for his shadow, we start to notice the days getting longer and anticipate the arrival of warmer weather, yet we still realize that mounds of snow are a reality. This school year is flying by quickly and the growth we are seeing at every grade level is remarkable. Students have processed what they have learned in the fall and there appears to be a wonderful integration around their learning.
There are a lot of exciting events scheduled in February at Roberts. Valentine’s Day is always special, even at school. Kindergarten students and their teachers will be celebrating the 100th day of school on February 11th and will be dressing up and appearing as if they are 100 years old. The Student Council will be selling Valentines Day Candy Grams for Middle School Students. Please connect work your students teacher to see what other exciting activities are happening in February!
Have a great weekend!

Bill Roberts Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee
Thursday, February 10th at 6pm
We are happy to announce that we are launching a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee that will be open to all Bill Roberts families as a support and accountability partner for the administration in the spirit of upholding the value of EQUITY at Bill Roberts.
After a series of racial harassment/bullying incidents at Bill Roberts, a group of parents have been working with the school administration to address these incidents. These conversations have helped all of us realize that to affect meaningful change for the entire Bill Roberts community, we need to create a parent-led entity to promote a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for all.
If you are interested and committed to the principles of diversity, equity, & inclusion, we would love to have you join. Our first meeting will be held on Thursday, February 10th at 6pm via Zoom. Please RSVP and you will receive the link to the meeting and an agenda.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at BRDEICOMMITTEE@gmail.com.
