Thank you for your support!
Thank you to everyone who helped promote and support Prop R. This will have lasting positive effects for our students at Robinson. We are so excited for the future!
I am writing to share with you the important work that we are beginning at Robinson. As I am finishing up my first year, we are coming out of a global pandemic, and the district is beginning the work of creating a strategic plan, we felt that it was time to gather input from stakeholders to begin building a vision for Robinson. Please click here to view a short video regarding our vision work.
We do not currently have a mission, vision, or school improvement plan. We are going to collect input over the next couple of months and begin drafting the statement early this summer. (We have a committee of stakeholders who will do this work- please use this google survey if you are interested in joining our committee.). We will then get feedback from all stakeholders on the draft statement and then revise it in time for the start of the school year. The timing of the revision will coincide with the completion of the strategic plan so that when we are revising we are ensuring that we are aligning our vision to the goals and mission set forth by our district.
Please take a few minutes to complete this brief three question survey sharing what you see for the future of Robinson and our students. Our students will also be working with their teachers to complete a survey before the end of the year.
Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, ideas, or if we can provide support in any way. Thank you for your partnership in keeping the Robinson community safe.

Robinson PTO to support our first ever Fun Run with our Kirkwood At Home Students
We are excited to kick off our Robinson & Kirkwood At Home Fun Run on Tuesday 4/27.
Boosterthon is a character based fundraising program that features daily character lessons and culminates in a virtual dance off and in person fun run. The Robinson PTO has not been fundraising this year due to the pandemic. We wanted to provide an opportunity for our in person and at home students to have fun and build their leadership & character.
We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at funrun.com. Sharing IS supporting!
As you may know, we will be focusing on literacy next year at the elementary level. All proceeds from this event will go toward building classroom teachers’ libraries with leveled diverse texts by authentic authors. We want to ensure that all teachers have access to rich text at their fingertips in their classrooms.
Please know that ALL students will have a safe way to participate in the week long activities. There will be options for our Kirkwood At Home families to participate at home or safely socially distanced prior to other kids using the school facilities. Your child’s participation is not dependent on any financial support or donations. This is a FUN event that Robinson PTO sponsored and we wanted all KAH students to also have the opportunity to participate in the fun.
Just as we worked to safely begin school this year, we are also safely hosting this essential fundraiser based on our school’s current guidelines. We’ll send more details, as we get closer to our kick off.
Key dates to remember:
Donating Opens - 4/20

Please make sure that your child has working earbuds or headphones at school for testing. They also need to have their iPad charging cord. Thank you!
To make up for lost time we are having our first ever beginning band camp this summer, June 7-17 at KHS. Camp will run from 9:00am-11:30am and is for any current 5th grade/incoming 6th grade student. If you started playing virtually this year, we encourage you to join us! If you did not start this year and would like to start in person this summer, we would love for you to join us!
Students will be introduced to instrument assembly and sound, note values and rhythms. They will learn to read a staff key and a time signature, learn some fun songs and give an outdoor performance for family members on the last day of camp. Each participant will need to bring his/her own instrument. We recommend renting from Nottelmann Music. Campers should choose from the following: flute, clarinet, trumpet or baritone. Musician’s masks and instrument bell covers will be provided at camp.

Summer School Information
Please visit our Summer School website to learn more about our expanded summer options for students. A range of K-12 jobs will be posted later this week, and additional information about professional learning and curriculum work will be shared soon.
Student and staff wellbeing has been and will be central to our planning. Families will need time away this summer, and many will schedule vacations that have been on hold for months. We know this, and we appreciate this - just as we know and appreciate that many students have academic and social-emotional needs to be addressed. Our summer plans seek to balance the needs of students and staff, recognizing important work to be done while keeping wellness at the forefront of our thinking.
Additional information about summer programming options
Online Registration is for New Students Only- if your child is currently enrolled you do not need to complete this even if transitioning to a new building (Nipher or North Kirkwood). Thanks!
