Superintendent's Fun Run

The district has made some changes to this wonderful event which supports the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, beginning with reduced prices. There is even a "sleep-in" option for those that just want to support the event but are unable to be there, or who don't really want to walk or run. Our very own Robison Runners will be participating, so consider joining in with our students and families. Dr. Henry always awards the campuses with the highest participation. Let's be a winner this year!


The following information was shared at our DLT meeting:


· This year’s event has a 5k and a 1 mile, family-friendly run, with more affordable pricing.

· The 5k offers an adult and student cost. The 1 mile is $5 for each participant.

· Shirts can be purchased for $10 and are the same soft fabric as in previous years. This year the color is grey.

· The sleep-in pass is an option for those who know they cannot be at the race on March 24 but would still like to make a donation to the event. Your campus or department will get credit for this as a participant.

· Additional donations to the event can be made on the registration form.

· Individuals whose registrations/donations total or exceed $100.00 will be part of the Superintendent’s Century Club and will receive special recognition at the event.

Bingo Night

One of our super fun secondary fundraisers is Bingo Night. Last year was our first time to do this, and we had a full cafeteria. Due to our increased enrollment, we have moved the event to Cy-Woods.


The students especially love having their teachers call numbers. I'll need 7 teachers who are willing to do this. The first game starts at 6:00 pm. If you are interested, please let me know.


Please consider supporting this event to show our PTO that we really are a "Parent, Teacher Organization". Just stopping in and mingling means a lot. There is an entrance fee which gives you a book of 10 games. Staff that volunteers will not be charged the admission fee. The Bingo committee would love having help with selling games as well if calling numbers is not your thing. Please let me know if you are interested in either as soon as possible.


Here is the information to make purchases:

  • Click on this link https://squareup.com/store/robison-elementary-pto/ to visit our online Bingo Store to purchase your admissions*, preorder whole pizzas, and purchase tickets to be used that night for drinks, candy, popcorn, slice pizza and additional Bingo Game Books. Additional tickets will be sold at Bingo Night. Most concessions are 1 ticket, with slice pizza and extra Bingo Books 2 tickets.
  • Doors open at 5:30 pm with the first game starting at 6:30 pm. We have some great Bingo prizes, such as a family bowling pack, car wash gift certificates, Stanley Steemer package, store/restaurant gift cards, and so much more! And, our blackout bingo game prize is an iPad 9.7" Retina Display!
  • * There are 2 admission items: (1)Ages 5 and up are $5 each and include 1 admission wristband, 1 Bingo dauber, and 1 book of Bingo game sheets. Wristband required for admission.

    (2)Ages 4 and Under – we need an accurate attendance number, so please if you are bringing children ages 4 and under, click on this admission item in addition to the ages 5 and up and enter the number attending that are 4 and under. Children ages 4 and under are free, but we need to include them in our count.

Kristin and Danny

I just love this couple. I haven't seen this movie ("The Greatest Showman") yet, but this is a great video.

Upcoming Twitter Challenge (Week of January 29-February 2)


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.


Be sure to get your tweets in on Friday by the end of the day so you'll be able to get your sticker!


Extra stickers will be given for the tweets with the most likes! We'll use this method for filling in any empty squares.


Get ready to tweet!

E-Track

Thank you for a great 1st session of e-track. The remaining dates are:


Wednesday, January 31

Wednesday, February 7

Tuesday, February 13

PBIS Survey

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.

Professional Development Opportunities

Multiple Quantum Learning opportunities on Saturdays at Cy-Woods HS beginning February 10

Speaker Amy Cuddy @ The Woodlands United Methodist Church on Saturday, February 10 (8am to noon- 4 hours of PD)

More Info

I recently saw that a friend posted she was excited to hear this speaker at a conference for her business. I googled Amy Cuddy, and she is quite popular and has done several TED talks. She is a NY Times best seller and has the second most-viewed TED talk (42 million views). It's pretty amazing to have the opportunity to hear her for free!
