Thanks, Roberts Community!

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu Thank you everyone who helped me celebrate that first step taken nearly forty years ago, when I began teaching at Roberts School. My surprise retirement party following the Spring Concert was overwhelming! Thanks to hundreds of hours of preparation by dozens of family and friends (Don’t you ever sleep, Erika?) it was an amazing surprise! The memory book with hundreds of letters from students, both past and present, has become one of my greatest treasures. Thank you also, students, teachers and school board, for the tribute, flowers and plaque presented during the graduation ceremony. Once again, it was overwhelming. Never once have I regretted that first step, which has provided me with a lifetime of memories of the outstanding students of the Roberts community. They have always been and continue to be The Best! With love to the Roberts Community, Mary Allen Roberts
