Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting. Psalm 107:1

Dear Saint Robert Community,

Welcome back from Easter break.  I hope that you had a wonderful, restful, time with your families and are ready for the last 26 school days of this school year.  As you know, this time will fly by.  We have many things to accomplish before that last day of school.  Teachers and students will be working hard to make every minute count.

The “Fun Run” is a week from Friday.  Thank you to all who have sent in your pledge forms and contributions.  The students love this fundraiser because everyone can be involved.  Thank you for your generosity.  Keep sending in those pledges!

If you are a person who likes to calendar ahead, please take a look at the school website calendar.  Over our break, I completed as many dates as we have defined at this point.  Hopefully, it will help you when planning vacations etc. around school days.  We only have 180 school days with the children and every day counts.

Our second graders will celebrate the sacrament of First Holy Communion this Saturday, a wonderful day for them, as well as their families.  Jesus said in John 6:35, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.”  What a gift to us!

God Bless You and Your Families,
Mrs. Wright

Sports Board Openings–Do you love basketball and helping young people learn the game?  Now is your chance to volunteer as a basketball commissioner for the Saint Robert Athletic Program.  As a commissioner, you would work with the coaches, parents, and students to ensure a successful season for all.  Please consider taking on one of these very important positions (there are four total-2  for girls and 2 for boys).  We are so grateful to our wonderful past basketball commissioners, Dante Venturi, Nick Paras, Ann O’Donoghue, and  Laura Davis, for  the many years of dedication given to Saint Robert. We are blessed.  If you would like to consider being a commissioner please contact Mrs. Wright at mrsmargowright@gmail.com or call the school office for more information.  Thank you!

Children’s Liturgy of the Word–Little Church–Three Sundays each month, at 9:30 Mass, volunteer celebrants gather the children of the parish to hear and discuss scripture readings at age appropriate levels. Conversations focus on what the Word of God means to them and how they can apply it to their daily life. Would you be willing to be a volunteer?  Please read the information in attachments to find out more.  Thank you!

CYO–For over 70 years, CYO Camp (home of Caritas Creek and OEE) has created an environment where children ages 8-17 can explore the world around them and develop powerful friendships that will last a lifetime.  Our 7-day, overnight camp sessions are filled with a variety of activities including swimming, hiking, archery, tie-dye, sports, canoeing and much more.  Catholic Charities CYO Camp provides financial assistance to eligible campers thanks to the generous support from many donors. For more information visit our website at www.cyocamp.org, call us at 707-874-0240.  Thank you.
