Employees from 7 schools and 3 other district buildings gathered in the High School auditorium to kick off the 2017-2018 school year.
After an engaging performance from the Owen J. Roberts High School Marching Band,
introductions of about 40 new staff members were made. It is always energizing to watch our Owen J. Roberts family grow! Welcome to all who have joined Owen J. Roberts!
Acting Superintendent Anthony Costello, a 43-year resident, thanked Owen J. Roberts staff for providing a great education for his two sons. He shared that when he comes to work (out of retirement), it is to work. "We will work together. We will do the right thing," he informed. He explained that his charge to everyone for the school year was twofold:
1. Recall someone who helped you along the way and repay that.
2. Show caring in all you do and strive to always do the right thing.
"Take Owen J. Roberts to even higher heights," he added.
Welcome back, faculty and staff. When the school building doors open on August 28, the Owen J. Roberts community of care-givers will be ready, happy, and eager to care for students!
