    The Junior League of Summit thanks you and your school community for participating in our annual Thanks-for-Giving Baskets food drive. With the generous support of Allen Roberts School and other area schools, we were able to provide 280 grocery bags to families through our partnering community outreach programs and help stock two local food pantries.

    We appreciate your kindness and contributions, and thank you for joining us in this special project this Thanksgiving season.

    Sincerely, The Junior League of Summit

  • Into the Future
    On Thursday, June 18th, AWR had an assembly to not only congratulate many students on academic achievements, but also to fill and close our time capsule. It was very interesting to see what each grade selected to put into the time capsule. The kids watched a little video of Mrs Hansen getting into a REAL DeLorean and taking off "Into the Future". She returned grey haired and excited! We truly hope you will all be around in 2035 when the time capsule will be opened. Thanks to the Wolters of the DeLorean Mid-Atlantic Club for lending us their DeLorean.

Allen W. Roberts School offers a supportive, yet challenging, child-centered learning environment where the faculty and staff combine their efforts to make each day unique and rewarding for students. Through a collaborative effort, parents, teachers, and administrators work together, providing the students of Allen W. Roberts the skills necessary to be responsible citizens in the dynamic global society of the 21st century.

Our professional staff is dedicated to meeting the needs of all children and participates in staff development projects throughout the year. At Allen W. Roberts, we value time for articulation which allows our staff opportunities to share their knowledge and experiences as well as learn from each other. We strive for an atmosphere where our students, staff, and parents feel proud and committed to supporting each other.

Our PTA provides invaluable support to our school in many ways. Parents volunteer their time in classrooms, support extra curricular programs, and numerous after school activities. Our PTA has raised a considerable amount of money to purchase technology and equipment, and support programs such as assemblies and author visits.

In addition to academics, an integral component of Allen W. Roberts is a Character Education program that allows students to recognize they can make a difference. Community service projects are evident among individual students, classes, grade levels, and the entire school community.

An ancient proverb once stated “If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.” At Allen W. Roberts, we focus on a lifetime of success for our students.
