Dr. Lorise Goeke
Welcome to 2017-2018 at Robert Morris School! We are all very excited to welcome the students to a new school year. As a Leader in Me School, we want our students to become well-rounded individuals, using the 7 Habits to build a strong foundation to plan and achieve their goals, become masters at conflict resolution, and set out to make our community a better place to live. We also want to provide them with a strong academic foundation so that the path to all of their dreams is a smooth one.
This year we hope to strengthen our commitment to the Leader in Me approach at our school. This is the year that we are renewing our Lighthouse certification, and we want to make sure all of our students get the benefit of applying the 7 Habits to their lives in order to reach their goals. We will be looking for parent Lighthouse Team volunteers and presenting training for parents to be able to help their students apply these Habits at home to build a strong home/school connection.
In order to support your student’s learning, we ask that you remember:
·Have high expectations for performance. Did you know that a famous study by Robert Rosenthal found that “you get what you expect”? (retrieved 9/11/17 from: http://homepages.gac.edu/~jwotton2/PSY225/rosenthal66.pdf)
Together we can make this year an exciting time of learning discovery for your students. Should you have any questions or concerns at any time, please feel free to reach out to me.
We look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Thursday, September 14.
