Holiday Project

You will receive an envelope on Monday to place all of the money that you have received. You will then give that envelope to Sally and she will keep it locked up for you. Please be sure to turn in your cash to Sally each day following.


If you have not received much money at this point, it would be best to send a follow-up email and if you have not already created a sign-up genius, that might be a better way to collect items.


Staff that does not have a homeroom--please see me if you would like to contribute. I have a few children that the A-team has adopted.


Just a reminder that gifts should be ready for wrapping on Monday, December 11. We are so fortunate to have volunteers who will be wrapping all of the gifts purchased for this special project.


Thank you for your help with this project!!

Help Needed with Attention to Restrooms

Please revisit the BLAST matrix for appropriate restroom behavior. Unfortunately, our custodians have had to clean some very disgusting messes. Along with talking to the students, please help to monitor the restrooms more closely. I will also do more spot checking and give reminders of this on the announcements. Our custodians work so hard, and it is more than disrespectful when our students leave filthy restrooms for them to clean. Let's also ask the students to report when they see the restrooms a mess. This might help us figure out who is doing this. It is not a problem in just one area, it is in many restrooms throughout the school. Examples include--feces on walls, soap bags thrown in the trash, paper on the ceiling, etc. Gross, gross, gross, and totally unacceptable! Now that you have that visual... I hope I haven't ruined your appetite.

Progress Reports

Progress reports go home on Tuesday. The grading guidelines are on the RES Hub. Please be sure that all grades are posted in a timely manner and that you have the minimum (at the least) number of grades required. Since progress reports fall around the halfway point of the grading period, this means that nearly half of the number of grades required should have been taken. Thank you!

Message from PTO

Fiona Anderson, our PTO board member in charge of membership, has created a video to help our staff with how to access the My School Anywhere information. Please take a moment to listen to the video so you will have a full understanding of how this works on our end and for parents.


Here is some important additional information about this:


Hi Robison Teachers,

Attached is a video discussing the My School Anywhere PTO System and how you can gain access to this system, below are the additional notes:

  • The links mentioned in the video are as follows:

Online store : https://www.myschoolanywhere.com/cart-new.a5w?cart=RobisonElementary14450

Volunteer Sign Ups: https://www.myschoolanywhere.com/volunteer-new.a5w?vol=RobisonElementary14450

  • To create a family account in MSA please go to www.join.myschoolanywhere.com, enter the join code gorockets and complete the information required. Please note if you have paid your PTO dues as faculty you do not need to pay again for log in details to be associated with a family account. After you have created the account, just let me know you would like a second log in under your family account and it will be sent to you. These log in details which are generated by the system and sent via email will have your temporary password which can be changed after you access the system.

  • If you would like to purchase PTO membership, you can do so online through our store (the link is provided above for ease of use)

  • Please let me know if you have access and log in details (i.e. username and password) and would like to keep these as they are by Thursday 14th of December. As mentioned, if I resend log in details the old password will no longer work.

  • Log in details for all other Faculty PTO members will be sent on Friday 15th December.

It is important that we resolve any access issues as early as possible to ensure you can fully utilize the system. Our goal is to get all users comfortable using the PTO system so we can really benefit from this tool. Also, we have events upcoming that will require access to our online store for sales, volunteer sign ups etc.

If you have any additional questions or queries, please let me know. I am happy to walk you through this if anything at all is confusing.

Thanks,

Fiona Anderson

Holiday Twitter Challenge #RESholidaybingo

Many of you have been participating, and there is still time for others. You do not have to get a blackout to win!!


This next challenge is similar to our Summer Selfie Bingo Challenge. This is a Holiday Bingo Challenge. You will receive one drawing slip per bingo (up to 5 bingos) and 6 drawing slips if you get a blackout! When you complete a challenge on the bingo card, you'll need to post a picture (or video) of you completing the task AND a picture of the bingo card with that square marked off. Save the picture below to use in your posts. If you need help with how to mark the card or how to post the picture, there are several staff members that can help--just ask! Have fun with this one!! Be sure to tag your tweets with #RESholidaybingo


See the example below the bingo picture. Thank you, Courtney!
