    Welcome to Roberts Elementary School!

    Roberts Families:

    Welcome to the 2022- 2023 school year!  We are so excited to begin the school year with lots of new and familiar faces.  For the first time since entering the pandemic, our school is at capacity with more than 700 students on campus.  I could not be more thrilled!


    Roberts has always been known as a place that encourages students to find joy in learning and fosters inquisitive thinking.  This year will be no different.  The mission statement of our school reads:

    Roberts Elementary strives to develop leaders in a global society who are inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people with a sense of community, respect and tolerance for diversity, and a love of learning. 


    As an IB School we strive to live out the mission statement every day in every way with our students.


    The success of our school is not only hinged on great teaching and learning, but also on partnerships with parents and the community at large.  We are looking forward to partnering with families and appreciate your support by being part of our REmarkable PTO!   Every year the PTO makes leveraging resources and support to our students and staff a priority.  Without this unwavering support, I am certain that our school would suffer. 


    I am incredibly honored to begin my 8th year as the leader of Roberts and I am looking forward to an awesome school year!   


    RE is the best place to be!
