Blue Ribbon Award Application Has Been Submitted
Monday, 08 December 2014 12:16

It is with so much pride that we announce that we have applied to CAPE, the Council for American Private Education, for consideration to be nominated for the Blue Ribbon Schools Award.  Since 1982, the U. S. Department of Education's National Blue Ribbon School's Program has honored America's most successful public and non-public elementary, middle, and high schools.  The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes schools whose students achieve at very high levels.  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.  This is quite an achievement and such a great accolade for our teachers who have done so much to lift our students to such outstanding success. 

CAPE will select 50 schools, among many applicants, who will be nominated to submit to the Blue Ribbon Schools Program.  If selected, we will have the privilege of submitting our nomination to Blue Ribbon who will select the final winning schools from across the nation.  The final submission to Blue Ribbon is due by the end of February.  The winning schools will be notified by September of 2015.

I know you join us in congratulating our teaching staff on the hard work they have done as they have worked to help all students reach their fullest potential.  We also thank our students, parents, parishioners, and benefactors as they have worked with us to fulfill the mission of St. Robert Bellarmine School and Parish. 

 
Student Council Chosen
Monday, 17 November 2014 10:25

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 homerooms! 

The 2014-2015 Class Representatives are as follows: Delaney Grant, John Pritchard, Delaney Foley, Sean Keating, Jack Lorkovic, Sean Smith, Annika Wilmers, Kate Zachary, Chloe Degan, Jack O’Malley, Paul Owens, Tommy Brant, Nick DiMari, Portia Lenczowski, Rocco Deppe and Eva Watson.

A special congratulations to those who were chosen as leaders among our leaders.  Those students include:  President: John Pritchard; Co-Vice Presidents:   Sean Keating and Jack Lorkovic; and Secretary/Treasurer:  Paul Owens.

 
News From the Art Room
Thursday, 30 October 2014 14:25

Artsonia is a website where students from all over the world create online art galleries. Last year, the third grade students (now fourth grade), used Artsonia to upload four or five pieces of artwork. Their families could go online and see their artwork and even had the chance to purchase merchandise that featured their child's artwork. This year, all students in grades K-8 have been assigned an Artsonia account.

At this point, nearly every student in the school has a piece of artwork on Artsonia. If you would like to see artwork from our students, go to www.artsonia.com and type “St. Robert Bellarmine” into the search box. Once you have found our school’s page, you can browse through the art galleries. If you are looking for someone specific, you can choose to browse by grade or search for an artist by their first name. St. Robert Bellarmine is ranked first in the state of Nebraska for number of artworks published, ninth in the state overall (there are multiple categories), and ninety fourth in the nation. Please help boost our rating by becoming a member of our students' fan club!
