Posted December 12, 2022
This week we opened our doors to welcome families who are making decisions about where to send their children next fall, families of future kindergartners. For many of us, those feelings of uncertainty about dropping your little one off at a big school for the first time may seem like a distant memory. We hope that after seeing our teacher’s passion and commitment to Bill Roberts, families walked away knowing that their kids would not only be safe, but thrive in our school environment. We also hosted parents of future sixth graders who are making decisions for Middle School. Again, for our younger families, the thought of sending your first and second graders to middle school may seem so far away, but that is exactly what our fifth grade parents felt just a few years ago. We are proud of the strong reputation our Middle School has developed.
As we wind down the week, we would like to thank the PTA and all the volunteers who put on our wonderful Family Dance Wednesday night, 401 tickets sold, along with hosting the Book Fair this week. The drama performance, “Cinderella and the Substitute Fairy Godmother,” has been the talk of the school. Two casts, four performances and 567 tickets sold and over 86 talented student performers. Thank you to our Art Teacher, Andi Mondragon, who helped students with the set designs and to the two teachers who made the performance so magnificent; Second Grade Math Teacher Jessica Kelling and Drama Teacher, Christina Lundblad. Our school community is stronger because of the commitment of staff and volunteers like you!
We have truly grown into a family here at Roberts and we are forever thankful for current and past families…we are Roberts and together, we are better. I am so grateful for having the opportunity to lead this tremendous school and to my staff who teach not just their students, but all of us, each and every day!
With much gratitude,
Trich, Erik and Katheryn

Each year we come together in December for a school-wide “Winter Outreach” day. We are so happy to continue this tradition of uniting our community while giving to others. The 2022 Bill Roberts Winter Outreach will once again include Adopt-A-Family wish lists – providing gift cards and meal boxes for some of our Bill Roberts families. Please sign up here for items needed!
Thank you to everyone who has signed up to bring items in for our welcome baskets! As a reminder, we are partnering with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and will be making 130 “Welcome Home” baskets for newly housed individuals. Students will be putting these together on December 13th. There are still a few items needed. If you would like to help supply items for this part of our winter outreach event, please sign up.
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.
