Please see the activities below for the month. We hope to see you!


Please reach out at any time to share any questions, concerns, or ideas. I am here to help and support you and your family. Thanks for all you do to help keep our students and staff safe.

Welcome our new 3rd-5th Grade Counselor- Tammy Fauss

Tammy Fauss is joining the team at Robinson Elementary School this fall as a guidance counselor for the third, fourth and fifth grades. She comes to us from Hawthorn Children's Psychiatric Hospital, where she worked as a therapist for the past seven years. Prior to that, she worked at BJC Behavioral Health as a children's case manager for nearly three years.


Ms. Fauss graduated from the University of Missouri–St. Louis with a master’s degree in educational counseling. She completed her undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Missouri in Columbia. And to answer the ubiquitous St. Louis question? Parkway North High School.


In her time away from work, Ms. Fauss enjoys spending time with family, friends and her 5-year-old rescue dog, Coco. She also likes attending sporting events, concerts, traveling, baking and shopping.


Please join me in welcoming her to our school community- you may email her a welcome message at tammyfauss@gmail.com. We are so happy to have her on our team!

Supply Lists for '22-'23

Consider purchasing all your School Supplies from Bright SchoolKitz - A one-stop online shopping experience


PTO is working with a school supply company, Bright SchoolKitz, to provide families with an opportunity to purchase all of their school supplies with a click of a button. Once ordered, the supplies will be shipped directly to the student's address within 2-3 weeks. This option would allow families to purchase supplies without having to go into stores or find each item independently. We hope that you will find this service to be convenient and efficient. Please visit the website to view supplies and prices. https://www.brightschoolkitz.com/Store/School/7366 Select "Order Kits" at the top of the page and then search for Robinson under the "Find Your School" prompt.


Bright SchoolKitz is a mom-run, family-owned, mission-focused company. We offer competitively-priced, high-quality school supply kits, shipped to school or home, that are customized to your teachers' supply lists or bulk supplies ordered for the entire school. To give back to the community, we employ adults with developmental disabilities to hand pack a portion of our kits. You'll be pleased to know that with our service there are no fees or required minimum purchases. Most of us here at Bright SchoolKitz also volunteer at our kids' schools or within our communities, so we know your time is valuable; therefore, we strive to keep our program simple and convenient.

Here are a few things to remember for the start of the next school year, and items you can do ahead to prepare.


Immunizations

As your child goes to the doctor this summer, for check ups, and sports physical, please also talk to the doctor about any immunizations that may be needed for school. By school guidelines, all Immunizations need to be completed in order to attend school.


Health Action Plans-

If your child has any medical issues (Asthma, Diabetes, Food Allergies, Seizures) or any medical issues that may require additional support, please get those action plans from your doctor. The Doctor offices are aware of these Action plans and can print them out.


Medications taken at School-

If your child will be taking medication at school, during school hours, they will need a medication permission form filled out. A medication form will also be needed for over the counter medication. All medication needs to be in the original bottle, container, or box, with the student's name on it. (this also includes inhalers, need to be in the original box) Check expirations dates, so no medication is expired. If you can get one that does not expire at the end of the school year, that helps so you do not need to replace it half way through the year.


You may start sending paperwork into school, Via email, or drop off at the school through the summer, with my name on it. If you have any questions, please email me, and let me know.


Thank you, and have a great summer,

Nurse Cyndi

Robinson PTO Board Needs Volunteers for 22-23 School Year

The Robinson PTO is looking for parents and guardians to join the PTO board for the upcoming school year! Worried that you won't have enough time? Or maybe that it's not the right fit? Well, have no fear! We are a fun bunch of parents who too just want to help our school community.


All open board positions are "elect" positions which means you will work alongside the current board member for a year before transitioning into the role. We recognize many of us are stretched thin in life and couldn't imagine carving out any extra time. But this type of community service really is rewarding especially when you see the joy on our students' and teachers' faces.


If we have a strong, diverse team we can strike a balance with time commitment and will be more successful at building a Robinson community that is connected, engaging and enriched!


All are welcome! Please contact us as robinsonpto@kirkwoodschools.org if you would like to hear more or are interested in joining our Board.
