Important Annoucement

Pirate Leaders and Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of school before the much needed Winter Break! These weeks are the toughest to stay focused and remember there is much learning to be done before school is out for the holiday season, but I know all Roby Leaders can do it!

It is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to resign as the Principal of Roby Elementary beginning January 2018. After much thought and consideration, this is the best decision for my family and my health. I have enjoyed every minute of leading Roby and know that the next leader will continue the momentum and take Roby to the next level. Mr. Firquin will continue to lead Roby as interim principal until the right leader is chosen by the SBDM council and school community.

I want to thank each of you for trusting me to lead Roby Elementary for the past 2.5 years and for supporting this very tough decision. I look forward to seeing the great things that Roby does in the future and will forever be a Roby Leader!

Thanks!

Brittany Knipp
Principal
Roby Elementary
