Five weeks of classes left...



Grad Boat Cruise... a beautiful night with some enjoyable people.  Thank you all for making the night as amazing as the views!  A special thanks to Ms. Doyle for the spectacular photograph!




Helping Us Understand McRoberts

What happens when you identify confident students, feed them pizza, and ask them questions that will help us better understand the school... we get thoughtful comments, realistic ideas for school growth, and many insights that we may never have uncovered without this opportunity.  A special thanks to the students (grade 9, 10, 11, and 12) who took part in three focus groups.  



Spring Season Coming to an End


The Spring Season of Play (the last of the year) is quickly winding down.  We would like to thank all of the coaches and sponsors who have given our students the opportunity to compete in the numerous athletic offerings this Spring.  



Mental Health in High School


On Friday, we (the McRoberts Staff) spent part of our day learning more about Adolescent Mental Health and how we as educators can support students who are dealing with challenging issues.  While the workshop was both comprehensive and detailed, we know that there is far more to learn as we continue to find ways to help all of our students.
