Principal's Message

Good Evening Robinson Families,

I hope it was a great weekend for all! Below are several updates:

10/20 Unity Day - I am excited to be able to take part in two special events with our JROB Community this week. Wednesday's Unity Day will help remind our students of the power of unity and inclusion. Thanks to all for helping our young scholars remember to treat each other with respect and dignity. Support our school by having your children wear orange. This is a time to remind our students that it is important they be respectful and commit to the safety of all on campus at all times.

10/21 Breast Cancer Awareness - Thursday we get a chance to congratulate all cancer survivors and remember loved ones that we have lost. In bringing awareness, my hope is that we can further connect with our students with meaningful topics that support well being.

Income Verification Forms - During the week we will be providing teachers income verification forms for students to take home. It is really important we encourage students to return them to us. Our school funding is directly tied to the percentage of forms we get back. Your assistance is greatly appreciated with this request. Parents, if you have any questions please call our school.

During my Principal Community Zoom Meeting two weeks ago I announced to parents that the Long Beach Unified School District is currently experiencing a shortage of Instructional Aides. To address this need at Robinson we are currently looking for Community Members and/or VIPS who would be interested in working as an Instructional Aides. Please take a look at the application and information for Instructional Aide – Specials linked here. If you or someone you know is interested or has questions please contact our school.

Thank you for all of your support during this unprecedented time, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Mensaje del Director

Buenas noches Familias de Robinson,

¡Espero que haya sido un gran fin de semana para todos! A continuación se muestran varias actualizaciones:

10/20 Día de la Unidad - Estoy emocionado de poder participar en dos eventos especiales con nuestra Comunidad JROB esta semana. El Día de la Unidad del miércoles ayudará a recordar a nuestros estudiantes el poder de la unidad y la inclusión. Gracias a todos por ayudar a nuestros jóvenes académicos a recordar tratarse unos a otros con respeto y dignidad. Apoye a nuestra escuela haciendo que sus hijos se vistan de naranja. Este es un momento para recordarles a nuestros estudiantes que es importante que sean respetuosos y se comprometan con la seguridad de todos en el campus en todo momento.

10/21 Concientización sobre el cáncer de mama: el jueves tenemos la oportunidad de felicitar a todos los sobrevivientes de cáncer y recordar a los seres queridos que hemos perdido. Al crear conciencia, espero que podamos conectarnos más con nuestros estudiantes con temas significativos que apoyen el bienestar.

Formularios de verificación de ingresos: durante la semana les proporcionaremos a los maestros formularios de verificación de ingresos para que los estudiantes se los lleven a casa. Es muy importante que animemos a los estudiantes a que nos los devuelvan. El financiamiento de nuestra escuela está directamente relacionado con el porcentaje de formularios que recibimos. Se agradece enormemente su ayuda con esta solicitud. Padres, si tienen alguna pregunta, por favor llame a nuestra escuela.

Durante mi Reunión de Zoom de la Comunidad con el Director hace dos semanas, anuncié a los padres que el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Long Beach está experimentando una escasez de auxiliares de instrucción. Para abordar esta necesidad en Robinson, actualmente estamos buscando miembros de la comunidad y / o VIPS que estén interesados ​​en trabajar como asistentes de instrucción. Por favor, eche un vistazo a la solicitud y la información para Ayudante de instrucción - Especiales vinculados aquí. Si usted o alguien que conoce está interesado o tiene preguntas, comuníquese con nuestra escuela.

Gracias por todo su apoyo durante este tiempo sin precedentes y esperamos verlos pronto.

JROB Unity Day - Students wear Orange on 10/20


Unity Day: Together against bullying- united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

Make it ORANGE and make it end! What are your true colors when it comes to bullying? If you care about safe and supportive schools and communities make your color ORANGE on Unity Day. That’s the day everyone can come together – in schools, communities, and online – and send one large ORANGE message of support, hope, and unity to show that we are together against bullying and united for kindness, acceptance and inclusion.

“One of every four school-aged children will be bullied this year - upwards of 13 million students,” said Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which sponsors Unity Day and founded National Bullying Prevention Month in 2006. “It’s important these students know they are not alone and that they have the right to feel safe. By joining together and wearing ORANGE on Unity Day, we can send the unified message that we care about student’s physical and emotional health and that bullying will no longer be accepted in this society.”

October is Filipino American History Month

Filipino American History Month (FAHM) is celebrated in the United States during the month of October. Filipino Americans are the second-largest Asian American group in the nation and the third-largest ethnic group in California, after Latinas/os and African Americans. October was chosen to celebrate the month to commemorate the arrival of the first Filipinos who landed in what is now Morro Bay, California on October 18, 1587. It is also the birth month of Filipino American labor leader Larry Itliong. In 1991, Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) board of trustees proposed the first annual Filipino American History Month to commence in October 1992.

October is LGBTQ+ History Month!

LGBTQ+ History Month is a month-long celebration that occurs in October to observe lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer history. It also honors the history of gay rights. LGBTQ History Month was founded by Missouri high-school teacher Rodney Wilson and first celebrated in the United States in 1994, centering National Coming Out Day, which occurs annually on October 11th. It was first known as Lesbian and Gay History Month, the coordinating committee added bisexual to the title and later transgender. Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is also celebrated in June.
