Congratulations, Student Council Winners

Over the course of the last month, the Student Council campaigns and elections were held in grades 6, 7, and 8.  Many capable leaders gave strong speeches.  At the culmination of campaign events, elections were finally held.  Winners were determined through a procedure using two sources.  One source was the traditional student vote, which accounts for 50% of the final determination.  The second source was a rubric system, which accounts for the other 50% of the final determination.  Each teacher filled out a rubric that identified each candidate’s leadership capabilities.  

We are so very proud of all students who showed a strong interest in wanting to lead our service activities throughout the school year.  The final percentages were very close in many cases.  Please help us congratulate the students who were chosen as class representatives for their respective 

The 2015-2016 Class Representatives are as follows:

On Tuesday, Mr. Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education in Washington D.C., announced the Blue Ribbon school winners for the 2015 school year.  We are extremely excited and proud to announce that our school is among the winners!

Stillmunks, Fr. Don Shane, Fr.

  • In order to qualify to apply, our school had to show documentation that we score in the top 15 percent of schools nationwide for all grade levels tested on standardized tests in the areas of reading and math. 


  • In addition, we provided ten written essays which further spoke of the excellence for which St. Robert Bellarmine School is widely known.  


  • The school will have the privilege of the recognition for five years at which time we can reapply for the award.  


  • Fr. Stillmunks and Mrs. Suiter will attend an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. in November to accept the award on behalf of St. Robert Bellarmine School.
