Upcoming Events / Information
Grade Nine Farewell
The Grade 9 Farewell has been set for Thursday, May 14 from 6:30 – 10:00 pm. This evening is an opportunity for Grade 9 students to celebrate their experiences as a Frank Roberts RAVEN and to spend the evening with their fellow classmates, a guest of their choice (approved by the school administration) and the teaching staff. Students often dress in semi-formal attire but it is not necessary that they do so. Please note that students must be picked up by their parents/guardians at the end of the night. Party busses/limousines are not permitted.
Student of the Month Launch
As a new component to our Safe and Caring School Development goal, it is hoped that this initiative will to raise awareness of our Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) program as students who demonstrate Respect for Learning, Respect for the Environment, Respect for Others and Respect for Self are recognized. Last month saw the launch of the Student of the Month program with the December theme of Caring. Students and staff nominated students and from those nominations, one student was selected from each homeroom. These students are highlighted in a bulletin board display located on the main floor. Please note that parents are also welcome to contact the school to nominate a particular student.
January’s theme is: Nutrition/Health Choices.
Congratulations are offered to all of the students who represented the school at the Annual Intermediate Skills Challenge held at the College of the North Atlantic on December 6. Individual winners include: Wayne Walsh – gold in Job Skill Demonstration; Abi Fleming – silver in Public Speaking; Emma Jacobs – bronze in Worksite Safety; Madison Tarrant – bronze in Job Search; Chelsie Cake and Breanna Tilley – gold in 2D Computer Animation; Alexander Kennedy – silver in website development; Andrea Baggs – bronze in photography; Rebecca Wiseman and Matthew Buckingham-Bishop – gold in IT network systems administration. Colby Greely and Ben Duggan also did well in TV/Video production. All of the students participation and results allowed the school to finish in third place overall!! Way to go!

Male staff members at Frank Roberts Jr. High have banded
together to participate in the global movement Movember – a
unique initiative whereby men through the growing of a
moustache during the month of November raise funds and
awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. Mo
Bros, as they are internationally referred, effectively
become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of
November. Through their actions and words, they raise
awareness by prompting private and public conversation
around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
If you would like to support this very worthy cause please check out our team Franks Fuzzy Ravens. Thank you for your support.
