THE SHEPHERD'S VOICE
June 8, 2020
This Week at
St. Robert Catholic School!
Dear Families,
Wow! What a year we have had! However, the exciting message is that “We did it!” Thank you so much for all your hard work as you truly partnered with us here at St. Robert as we dealt with COVID 19 and remote learning. I cannot believe that St. Robert Catholic School’s second year is complete!

There are many highlights to this year, but one of my most memorable will be the attendance at our Car Parade on June 1! After being away from each other for over 9 weeks I was pleasantly surprised to see 51 cars lined up to join in the fun, pick up school items left behind, and to get a photo with the teachers! I can confidently say that we built a community here this past year! Thank you all for believing in our mission and love for our students!

As we look forward to the fall, please know that I will keep you posted as we create a plan for safe reentry into school. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns as they come up!

Have a blessed summer and know that I will continue to pray for all of you!

Peace,
Liz

Summer Programming Plans from Kent District Library

KDL has put together a unique program that includes some new features this summer. Yes, it will be different, but still amazing. This summer it's all about simplicity and keeping kids engaged.  
 
Here are some of the highlights:  
  • It’s the same 30-day goal for all ages.  
  • Completion can be tackled without making regular visits to the library.  
  • Tracking progress is super easy by using https://kdl.beanstack.org/reader365 the mobile app or paper tracking log.
  • Incorporates not only reading, but writing, and at-home STEAM activities.   
  • All programming will be virtual this summer.   
  • Visit KDL.org/summer for all the details.  

Most everything you need to know for this reading program is at KDL.org/summer, including a printable copy of the 30-Day Challenge tracking log, though this summer we are really encouraging folks to use our Beanstack app to record their progress.  
 
Here is a short promo video .  

Through these challenging times, KDL is there for you and your students and we will get through this together.
