Updating Your Live/Remote Status
It remains important for us to know who will be attending live classes each day. We need to know this so our teachers can prepare as well as for contact tracing purposes. To help us do that, we ask that you please fill out this survey to let us know your family’s plan.
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.
Dress Code Reminder: Shoes

Now that we are a few weeks into the school year, we expect that students are wearing proper CRB dress code. We’ve noticed a number of students wearing improper shoes this past week, such as Crocs. Students should only be wearing solid-color black or brown shoes.

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.

CRB Gets Back on Track

We are happy to report that the running club had an even bigger turnout this week than last! If you’d like to get in on the fun, bring sneakers and running clothes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

For more information on these sessions, please contact Mr. Curran, Ms. Pederson, or Ms. Gemma.
Looking Ahead: SAT & PSAT on October 14

As a follow-up to last week’s note: We are planning for all students to take the SAT and PSAT here at CRB on Wednesday, October 14, at 9 AM.

More details will follow soon, and in the meantime, please mark your calendar with this important date.
