PBIS News: Fall Leaves Flowing in the Halls
BLAST behavior is in full swing at Robison Elementary. During the month of November, we will be focusing on BLAST behavior in the hallway and showing integrity on the buses. When students are caught showing BLAST behavior in the hallway or setting a great example on the bus, they will earn a fall leaf. The student will write their name on the leaf and then add the leaf to their grade level fall tree.
Blast behavior in the hallway can be shown in many ways. Keeping your hands to yourself, eyes forward, lips closed, and no space-keep the pace are just a few ways to show BLAST behavior in the hallway. Integrity on the bus can be shown by sitting seat to seat and back to back, thinking twice-being nice, and showing the way every day! Remind your child to fill the hallways of Robison with fall leaves.
Congratulations to our winning grade- 2ND grade for being our October BLAST winners! The second graders have won a pajama day for the whole grade level! The date will be announced soon in your weekly blast emails from your child’s teacher.

A Note From our PTO President, Karen Finke
Our first graders have recently had some fun days. Today they got to enjoy their Super Citizen Day to learn more about some of our patriotic symbols, historical figures, and even our voting process! Earlier this week they received their first Science Resource Center presentation on Eggs and Nests. It is perfect timing as they anxiously await the hatching of the chick eggs, all part of their science curriculum.
Fifth-grade parent volunteers are busy preparing Colonial Day for our fifth-grade students scheduled November 17. The students get to participate in such Colonial activities as candle making, butter making, quilting, and so much more. There is still time to volunteer for this all day super fun event! Please click on this link to be taken to our online sign-up form. Please include your student’s homeroom teacher name when signing up to volunteer.
Continue to read over the important dates section of this newsletter and the PTO section for upcoming events and information. We also are communicating through our MySchoolAnywhere system via emails from Robison PTO.
Thank you to all of our parent volunteers who helped Boosterthon run so smoothly and also to our families for your support in making it a fun, successful event!

We are ready to begin forming a planning committee, so if you have an interest in being part of the team, please contact the Primary Fundraising co-chairpersons, Vicky Purvis (email@example.com) and Heather Kargel (firstname.lastname@example.org). This event was a massive success last year, and we are anticipating an even better time this year. We need LOTS of volunteers to help the event run smoothly, so if you are interested, please reach out today!

Science Resource Center
We are so fortunate in CFISD to have the Science Resource Center (SRC). They house many different animal groups and allow trained parent volunteers to present these animals and information to our kiddos in an up close and personal way! These programs enhance and enrich the Science programs with living examples.
Each grade level has assigned animal group presentations and parents must be trained before they can handle these animals. With the delay to the start of school, some of these trainings are coming up quickly. Below is listed the upcoming trainings and times. These sessions are held at the SRC (11206 Telge Road…From Hwy. 290 take the Telge Rd. exit. Turn north on Telge Rd. Approximately ¼ mile down the road you will come to the light for Arnold Middle School entrance. Immediately after the light, turn right into the first gate of the FFA rodeo grounds. At the end of that road, you will see the Science Resource Center). Please remember that trainings are Adults Only please. No registration is needed to attend a training session. If you have trained in the past for one of these animal groups, it is not necessary to retrain.
While the actual presentation dates are not set, we are getting our volunteers trained now so we can get these booked with the SRC as soon as possible.
8 - Kindergarten Guinea Pigs 9:30-11:30 am
10 - 2nd grade Snakes 9:30-11:30 am
28 - 4th grade Galveston Bay Ecology 9:30-11:30 am

Please consider helping out in the learning garden. All students visit the garden and get to enjoy some hands-on experience growing fruits and vegetables. See flyer for specific help needed and dates your child will visit the garden. If you have questions, please contact VP Special Events, Shannon Bahr at Shannon@landontechnical.com.
