Friday Message 4/28/23

Posted May 3, 2023

Good Day,

Wow, what a week it has been filled with school spirit and support!  We hosted our first annual students vs. staff volleyball game, entertained by cheers, laughter and our mascot.  Thank you student council; who helped organize this fun event.    We housed the entire school in the gym, that’s a first in a very long time.  Staff doors are now decorated and look wonderful!!  Staff Appreciation Week is coming up and begins on May 1st.   We are so appreciative of all of our volunteers who allow Bill Roberts to be such an amazing place.  It reminds us of how lucky we are to have such a strong, helpful and fun community!!  From the bottom of our hearts, we can’t say thank you enough for all you do.   

We are moving into the home stretch now; only four and a half more weeks remaining of school .  It will continue to be a hectic time, yet still be overflowing  with learning and liveliness.  Please read through this message for all the fun-filled things that are about to happen.

Enjoy the spring like weekend.

Trich, Erik, and Katheryn
