'20- '21 Registration Forms
On Wednesday and Thursday, you should have received notifications about completing this year’s registration forms on FamilyID. We are putting all these important forms—such as the 2020-2021 Parent Student Handbook, emergency contact information and emergency medical authorization—online to avoid using paper during COVID. Please fill out these important forms as soon as possible; they should only take 5-10 minutes.
Our online school store, which features CRB gear ranging from polos to winter hats, is now open!

You can view the full selection and place your orders here.
Robotics Club
CRB is offering Robotics this year as a club, which will meet on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-9:30 AM. Students can participate both virtually and in person. Due to COVID, we will only be able to have 15 students participating with building robots at this point. Kits may go home with students after signing a materials agreement. Additional slots will be available for students who are interested in coding.

Robotics will allow students to gain hands on experience with real-world problem-solving, coding, critical thinking, and engineering. The coding language we will use during the club time is Python and the Team is Java. Students will have the option of joining our First Tech Challenge team which last year attended two competitions. Though we are unsure of how competitions will work this year, we need to begin our practice and building for our next competition.

You can sign up using this Microsoft Form. If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Polio.

Looking Ahead: PSAT & SAT Testing

We have made an adjustment to our dates for the PSAT and SAT.

On Wednesday, October 14, all 9th and 10th graders will take the PSAT and 12th graders will take the SAT. Both tests begin at 9 AM and are mandatory for all students, even those who are remote.
11th graders will now take their PSAT on Thursday, October 29. Their test will begin at 10 AM and is also mandatory for all students, even those who are remote.

Please know that we are splitting students into smaller groups so that the entire time they are testing, they will be more than 6ft apart.
