INSPIRING THE UNIMAGINABLE!

We are welcoming students to school everyday with music, smiles, and laughter! If you did not have a chance to watch the video above, check it out! As CAREGIVERS we have committed to INSPIRING THE UNIMAGINABLE as our compelling vision for the future of Roby Elementary. The way we begin each day and end the week is a powerful connection to our vision. Stay tuned on Fridays for a Facebook Live event connected to our school priorities and upcoming experiences!



One of our priorities this year is to deeply engage our families in the learning experiences and community events we provide for our students. Click on the Connect with my Community survey (in the stay in the know section below) to learn more about the many ways you can partner with us for the benefit all Roby students and staff! We are in the process of re-launching our PTA and investigating the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program as two possible methods to connect with our school.


Shout out to Ashley Johnson for volunteering in our cafeteria! We have been short lunchroom monitors and really appreciated Ms. Johnson's CARE for our Cougar Cubs on Friday last week!
