Good Day,

It has been an extraordinary week at Bill Roberts.  I am not sure who is more worn out- staff or students. This week was our Annual Thanksgiving Lunch with families and  kids. We served over 160 guests of students who feasted on roast turkey, whipped potatoes with gravy, bread dressing, fruit, cranberries and sweet potato cake with cream cheese frosting.  It was quite the lunch. 

A giant thank you for a very profitable Thursday. It’s not everyday that we ask to raise” $22K in 22”. But even better, we actually raised $30,000 during the online giving day on Thursday.  With much appreciation, we want you to know that this is truly a gift.  We thank all of our parents and wonderful PTA for continually giving of their time and treasures to help us give your children the

educational experience they deserve.  

Enjoy the weekend.

Trich, Erik, & Katheryn

Please purchase from the MySchoolBucks Store. Any purchases made without specifying a student will go into the general 8th grade trip scholarship fund.

Bill Roberts Food Pantry

Help fill the cupboards! The food pantry is running low due to an increase of families in need of assistance this year. We will have a donation box at the front office if you have non-perishable items to donate! The items we need most include cereal, spaghetti sauce, boxes of pasta, canned tuna/chicken, peanut butter, canned fruit/vegetables, rice, beans, soup, macaroni & cheese and boxed meals. Thank you for making a difference! 

Costume Donations Needed

We are in need of costumes for the upcoming production of Cinderella and the Substitute Fairy Godmother.  Ms. Lundblad is going to the DPS costume shop, but we are hoping to get a Bill Roberts costume shop started.  We currently have a need for 70  costumes for our current show.  If you have any ball gown-type dresses, fairy tale creatures, fairy costumes, royal-looking suits (for boys) or really anything you would like to donate, we will gladly take it.  We will also need costumes for our K-8 spring production of Shrek the Musical.  Costumes can be dropped off at the front desk or the drama room.


Enrichments at Bill Roberts are getting organized. Discovery Link manages the entire registration, logistics, and invoicing process. Joie Cohen is the East Region’s Enrichment Coordinator. He books and organizes enrichments for 10-12 schools and will oversee everything for Bill Roberts. Each enrichment class is about one hour long and runs for approximately ten weeks.  See below:

Fun Run Results

Below are the winners for each of the races and categories from last Saturday. We had over 300 students and families registered!

From Principal Lea: “I would like to note that in both the 1 mile and 5k races, we had a student identified as the winner that came to us and said, ‘_____ was in front of me and should be the winner.’ It was a wonderful testament to the integrity of Bill Roberts’ students.”
