 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13:16

Dear Saint Robert Community,

This community has definitely heard God’s request to share with others.  This past week many of you have given to the families devasted by the wine country fires.  The Women’s Guild  and many of our sports teams have or will collect this month for Breast Cancer Awareness.  This Saturday is the Inbetweener’s Rummage Sale benefiting children through St. Justin Centre. Blessings to all who have coordinated or contributed.

Grandparents Special Person’s Day is coming up on Friday.  It is truly one of the most precious days of the school year.  I hope you have a chance to participate.

Red Ribbon Week  Spirit Days  October 23rd-27th   You are invited to participate in a week of school spirit to celebrate our choice to be drug free.  Students are encouraged to wear their red ribbons everyday. Special clothing that can be worn during the week:

Monday:  Our School is Proud to Be Drug Free!  Wear red with your uniform to kick off Red Ribbon Week.  (Red shirt,headbands,socks,hats…..)   * Students will receive their Red Ribbons.
Tuesday:  Sock it to Drugs!  Wear mismatched or fun socks with your uniform.
Wednesday: Use Your Head-Don’t do Drugs! Wear crazy hair or a crazy hat with your uniform.
Thursday: Team up against drugs! Wear your favorite sports team shirt or jersey with your uniform.
Friday:  Put Drugs To Sleep!  Wear your pajamas. (Free dress appropriate)

Our Halloween parade is scheduled about 15 minutes after morning mass on Tuesday the 31st. Students should arrive at school in their costumes.  Just a reminder, students should keep any kind of weapon involved with their costume at home.  Please do not send them to school. Shoes should be appropriate for recess.  We will have no hot lunch that day, so students will need a sack/bag lunch. Any parties have been arranged between the room parent and teacher.  If a student would like to change out of their uniform, the colors of the day are orange, black, or purple free dress.  If there is any question about no leggings or jeggings etc.  please see Parent, Student Handbook on the website.

God Bless You and Your Family,

Mrs. Wright

P.S.  Quite a few students are missing school due to vacations.  We only have 180 days to try to teach your children everything their curriculum requires.  Please try everything you can to plan your trips during the remaining 185 days of the year.  Thank you!
