Teacher of the Year
Several events have been added to the calendar. Please be sure to update your paper copy or your digital calendar with these updates. The Rocket Fest is a major fundraiser, and we really need our staff to be in attendance and show support. There will be some type of game/booth for staff. Last year we had a dunking booth. I've asked for something "safer", so I'll let you know. Bingo Night is a secondary fundraiser. If you are interested in calling numbers for a game (lots of fun), please let me know. There will be approximately 10 games. I cannot be sure of the time for each game, but if you have a particular time that you are not available during the event (6 to 9 pm), please let me know. This was great fun last year, and we've moved it to Cy-Woods cafeteria to allow for more room.

District Attendance Incentive
Our first week of E-track will kick off on Wednesday. Your rosters will be ready for you on Tuesday. Thank you all for working swiftly to make this happen. Please take time to take pictures of your students engaged in your class. You may save them on the staff drive. I'll create a folder just for these pictures, and this will allow me to share them in our next Rocket Register. I will be unable to go around to take pictures. When you do save them, please name them with your last name or the subject of your course. Thank you so much!
Each grade level should work together to create their adjusted schedules to allow for all subjects to be taught on these days. Kindergarten and 1st grade should decide on their rotation schedule.
E-track dates are:
Wednesday, January 17
Wednesday, January 24
Wednesday, January 31
Wednesday, February 7
Tuesday, February 13
All sessions will take place from 3:00 to 3:45.
The School Improvement and Accountability Department will be launching the PBIS Effective Behavior (EBS) Survey on Tuesday, January 16th. The EBS Survey window will close on Friday, January 26th.
This survey is so important to our campus' growth with PBIS. I encourage all of you to complete the survey. We are aiming for 100% participation, and if we can do this, everyone will earn a day of "comfy dress" (athletic wear or jeans).
The results from our EBS Survey are instrumental in our continued refinement of the implementation of the PBIS process on our campus.

Upcoming Twitter Challenge
The week of January 29-February 2, we'll continue with our daily tweet challenge. During this week, you will earn a ticket for every tweet (up to 2 per day). The "tickets" will actually be stickers for our Super Bowl squares. The Super Bowl squares have been a tradition at Robison. Instead of the t-shirt, you'll be competing for a square on one of our Super Bowl boards. Prizes for the winners will be given out for each quarter. This is the same concept that you have played with other Super Bowl squares, except the prizes are not monetary. Prizes will include: Sonic Drink (1st quarter), Week of Jeans (halftime), Lunch on Robison (3rd quarter), and Sonic drink+week of jeans+lunch on Robison (final score). We will have as many boards as we need.
Get ready to tweet!
