The New Normal

Whether in-person or virtual, we are carrying on with this business called school. Middle school students not able to attend school, join live class sessions from home and are able to work in collaborative groups with classmates during the regular school day. Technology is making this happen! Keep up the great work, middle school!

ANNUAL PRETZEL DASH

Our littlest bobcats showed their school pride by participating in the annual ‘Pretzel Dash’ during morning recess. Each of the four kindergarten classes ran in their own heat as the other 3 classes enthusiastically cheered them on. Pom poms were proudly waving as all our little bobcats ran with gusto.

TINY TEAMWORK

The kindergarteners have been engaged in an inquiry on bears and have investigated their habitats. As a culminating activity, the 5K students worked in collaboration with each other and built their own bear habitats using natural materials. Good work, kindergarteners!

BREATHE IN! BREATHE OUT!

The prekindergarten children are learning many wonderful mindfulness techniques as they participate in our new yoga program. It was such a windy day today, but our school was in good hands as the 4-year-olds held up the building with ease!

GREETINGS from MEDELLIN, COLUMBIA!

Our own strings teacher, Tony Perez, may be far from home, but he keeps us close to his heart. Thoughts of St. Robert continue to give him strength and courage. He made this beautiful video for us to enjoy. Please continue to hold Tony in your thoughts and prayers until he can return home to us again. Enjoy!

Thriving in Third Grade

Third graders just finished up their first unit in reading; ‘Building a Reader’s Life!’ As a little celebration, students had the opportunity to create their own little reading nook and read to their hearts content!

First Floor Planning Ahead

Even our youngest learners at St. Robert are preparing for virtual learning… just in case. The pre-kindergarteners, kindergarteners, and first graders are all learning and practicing using the Seesaw app. This is the platform our pre-k through second graders will use in the event the switch to virtual learning needs to happen. Using the app at school allows students to create a digital portfolio of their best work. It is quite impressive how quickly young children adapt to the use of technology. The 5K students who used the app last year even reminded their teacher about some of the great features available for posting their work. Great job teachers and students!

Yoga and Mindfulness

During these stressful times in the world it is so important to learn strategies and techniques to assist in keeping anxieties in check. At St. Robert School we are intentionally focusing on teaching mindfulness techniques through our new yoga class. Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation. Students will learn different strategies that they can take with them to the classroom, at home, or anywhere they may find themselves needing to find an inner calm to get them through the next moment. This would be a great family practice. Why not ask your child what he/she learned in yoga class this week?

First Floor Success

Our youngest learners are off to an amazing start with their learning despite wearing masks. The willingness to learn ALL the health and safety protocols and still show their smiles through the masks is a testament to the joy they feel being back with friends and learning inside the walls of a real classroom. Patience, persistence, and true faith will keep us going strong!
