Santa finally arrived at St. Robert and brought what we needed most: a break from school. Since the curriculum marathon is near it’s end, classes have started their sprint to the finish line. After intense learning, wrapping up projects, and last minute tests, the cheery dismissal announcement was a warm surge of relief for teachers and students. A reminder that we truly are entering the most wonderful time of the year. Of course the lighter atmosphere and spirit of the school sped up the seemingly never ending days.
The decorations, music, and ultimately the Christmas tree in the main entrance gave St. Robert a new glow. We had ornament sales, locker decorating contests, and a Christmas concert.
A talent show was also prepared, with beautiful music: voice and instrumental, along with a comical performance by the student council and their very own sassy Santa.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year.
