    "As a Catholic School community, we believe that through modeling kindness, forgiveness and compassion, we can make a difference in God's world. We believe all children should feel safe, loved and inspired throughout their academic and spiritual journey to be passionate learners and live Christ-centered lives."

    When there is a change of dismissal for your child, please send a quick note in your child's blue folder & email/call main office. Even if there is a substitute in KB, he/she will know how to send your child home!

    If someone is kind to you, recognize them with the RB Kindness Coin! Give it to a person outside of our school community that has shown kindness to you. Post then on RBS Facebook using the #RBSKindnessCoinChallenge. Email Mr. Rosanelli for help if needed. "Kindness is our mission, pass it on."
