Robison Elementary Rocket Register

August 26, 2022

Message from Mrs. Gerletti

We've had an outstanding first week of school! Your patience with dismissal is appreciated, and please know that it will continue to improve.

Our Curriculum Nights are scheduled for September 6 (ECSE, PK, K, and 1st) and September 13 (2nd-5th). Teachers will hold one session at 6:00 pm, and then repeat the same session at 7:00 pm. These sessions are extra helpful to parents since the teachers will be sharing specific information about your child's classroom routines and the curriculum. All sessions will take place in your child's classroom, and we look forward to seeing you. If you are unable to attend, your child's teacher(s) will email their slides to you afterward.

Choir Information

Dear Parents of Fourth and Fifth Graders,

If your child enjoys singing and making music with their friends, please consider joining the Robison Choir this year. I will be sending a note home next week with all the information. Here are a few things. We meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in the Music room from 7:45-8:25. We prepare the music for the Veterans Day and Holiday Program. I would love to have your child be a part of such a fun and meaningful music experience. Not only do we sing but we make friendships and beautiful music together. Thanks so much for all your support.

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am Ms. Wolfe for those of you who may be new to our wonderful school, I am your librarian, and excited about this school year!

A few things are coming our way real soon!

Library Birthday Book Club-It’s a tradition at Robison. I hope you will participate in this great program where kids love to select their own book and see their nameplate inside it. It is a wonderful way to help your child realize the importance of reading and they will leave a gift to Robison for years to come. The cost is $15 PLEASE use SCHOOL CASH as the form of payment. More information will be sent out in the next 2 weeks.

Summer READING Challenge-complete your challenge by September 19th to be included in a drawing for prizes and books. Students completing the challenge will also receive bronze, silver, or GOLD medals! Please sign your child’s yellow paper and return it to the library! So proud of my summer readers! Looking forward to the great bookmarks too.

Scholastic Book Fair is around the corner! Great childhood memories are created by visiting the bookfair and purchasing their own books. Most books are paperbacks and reading is truly a superpower: it builds problem-solving skills, imagination empathy, vocabulary and so much more. If you are interested in volunteering, please email or a signup Genuis will be going out soon from your PTO. Our fair starts Sept. 30th and runs until October 7th at noon. Family night will take place October 4th from 4:30 to 7 PM, parents may bring their child/ren to shop for books together!

Student Birthdays

Student birthdays are recognized on our daily announcement slides.

If you'd like to have your child's birthday celebrated at school, we offer parents the opportunity to purchase ice cream ($1.00) or cookies ($.50) from the cafeteria to be distributed to their child's class during lunch. In order for our cafeteria to prepare for this, you must give at least one week's notice. You may email if you are interested.

We are unable to allow students to hand out birthday invitations at school, or to hand out birthday treats in the classrooms.


If your child DOES NOT HAVE a Chromebook

  • Go online to School Cash to complete the Parent Acknowledgment form.
  • Sign the paper form that was sent home and record your receipt number (there is no charge).
  • Return completed paper form to school.

If your child DOES have a Chromebook

  • Chromebooks go home every day.
  • Charge the Chromebook at home and keep your charger at home.

Spirit Days and Fan Shirt Fridays at Robison

We encourage your child to join in on the fun of wearing Robison spirit wear on Mondays. We also have Fan Shirt Fridays. On Fridays, we love to see the professional and college teams that your child supports.

If you have not already ordered a spirit shirt, these are available through PTO.

You may join PTO to show your support of the many activities provided for our students. While we love volunteers, joining PTO does not require you to volunteer.

Membership information and the purchase of spirit wear is on their website,
