Congratulations to Owen J. Roberts High School student, Daniel DiMarino, whose composition, Temptations, was selected as the wining piece for the 2017 National Student Composers Competition. Daniel’s composition displays the breadth of his musical talent and also stands as testament to the power of music education in our classrooms. "Daniel is a very special music student," said Owen J. Roberts Choral Director, AP Music Theory Instructor, Ms. Sheila McIntyre.
The winning composition has also been selected for performance by the National Association for Music Education’s (NAfME) All National Honor Orchestra during their All National Honor Ensembles concert, scheduled for November 29, 2017 at Walt Disney World. Daniel was also named a member in the Violin 2 section of the All National Honor Orchestra. The performance will be on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 10 am.
Each year, the NAfME National Student Composers Competition draws entries from across the country, from talented students of all ages. NAfME informs that they “are repeatedly impressed by the passion and ability that are demonstrated in these submissions. To be selected as a winner from this year’s pool of entrants is quite an accomplishment.”

The Owen J. Roberts School District
Superintendent Search Update
Wednesday, July 12, 2017
Dear OJRSD Parents, Students, Staff and Community:
We are pleased to announce that the search for the next superintendent of schools for Owen J. Roberts School District is underway! As you are most likely aware, the
Board approved the contract with the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) to conduct the superintendent search at a special meeting held on Monday, July 10.
We have met with the CCIU search team, headed by CCIU Executive Director Dr. Joseph J. O’Brien, and we will begin immediately to actively advertise and recruit for the position throughout the commonwealth and the tristate area.
Integral to the process will be communication with you, our district stakeholders. The Board will provide bi-weekly updates on the search’s progress on the district’s website, email news listservs and social media.
In addition to providing information, the Board will also be seeking our stakeholders’ input by conducting a series of focus groups throughout the late summer and early fall. From the focus groups, the Board will develop a candidate profile and an array of interview questions that center on the needs and challenges facing our district as identified by you, our stakeholders.
Information regarding focus group dates, times and locations will be published on the website and communicated through the District’s regular communication channels in the near future.
The Board of School Directors hopes to have the search process completed by late fall/early winter in order to have a superintendent who can assume his or her responsibilities at Owen J. Roberts School District on or as close to January 1, 2018 as possible. We realize that this is a very aggressive timeline but we are hopeful that we will be able to start the new year with our next superintendent in place.
We look forward to working with the entire OJRSD community to bring an outstanding educational leader to serve as the district’s next superintendent of schools.
The Owen J. Roberts Board of School Directors
