ROBINWOOD BOOK FAIR

October 14th - October 22nd, 2021

WE ARE BACK!

Although our fair may look a bit different this year, many things are still the same. Children will find many of the most popular titles and authors in our case selections. Because of production, we do NOT have the volume that our families who have been around for a long time are used to. So as we say, buy early and often or use our alternative online shopping store at the link below. There you will also find the ever important E-WALLET! We are encouraging all families to use this as the preferred method of payment. If your child doesn’t use all the money that you load onto the account, that money will sit in your scholastic account for future use on a book order. This process makes shopping easier and safer for EVERYONE! No lost or misplaced money, no hand to hand contact, just easy peasy shopping FUN! Of course, we will accept cash, checks (Made out to Robinwood Spencer in exact amount-no change will be given from a check) and of course credit cards. Although BOOKS are the main focus there are many journals, pens and knick-knacks to buy. Please talk with your child about a budget, what your expectations are for them to spend in the fair and if you are okay with them buying anything. We always have this arise at least once during the fair and we find it best if addressed at home before kids attend. They’re so EXCITED that they sometimes forget to buy what they are there for.


PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCE SHOPPING HOURS


As promised, we would be open to families during conference hours. Because of logistics our thought of having the carts outside will not realistically work. Therefore, we are being flexible and providing families with a shopping experience during their conference night with their child. (Parents must be present. (PLEASE DO NOT drop off your child to shop while you are in their conference. They must attend with you.) There will be a 5 family limit at one time and masks MUST be worn at all times regardless of vaccination status. Please check in at the library door and we will put you on the waitlist. You can either wait outside or in your car and we will call you when it’s your turn. Please be conscious of your time at the bookfair as we would like every family to have the opportunity to shop. We are limiting time in the shop so everyone can get a chance. Please don’t be offended if we ask you to wrap up your purchase. We want this to be a great experience for everyone and this is uncharted territory. We are doing our best to bring normalcy to our kids' lives again! If you have any questions, please email us at rwk6pto@gmail.com.


PLEASE DO NOT call the office to ask questions as they are already very busy tending to students during the day. We will check our email periodically throughout the fair to answer all questions.

PACER TEST IN PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS 10/18/21-10/22/21


Next week students will be participating in the PACER test in Phy. Ed. Class. The PACER test is a test for your sons or daughters cardiovascular endurance. Students will run 20 meters before the beep from the recorder. After a set of laps, approximately 7 to 9 laps, the time between the beeps decreases slightly making it more difficult to complete the test. Each student gets two mistakes (not crossing the line before the beep), on the second mistake the students test is over and their number of laps completed is reported to the teacher.


On PACER test day students should have a healthy breakfast or lunch depending upon when they have Phy. Ed. class, wear gym shoes and bring water bottles to class.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at school.


Thank you,


Mr. Bauer

ROBINWOOD RUSH


The Robinwood RUSH is our one and only fundraiser for the year for PTO. Each child will be asked to run or walk around our Mr. Bauer designed course for 15-20 minutes. Each student will get information to sign up online and be sponsored either by lap or for the entire run with a straight donation. Children are encouraged to ask parents, grandparents, relatives, neighbors and friends. We DO NOT encourage door to door sales. There is a company we utilize to reach a social media audience and take donations online. All this information was sent home with your child on Tuesday, October 12th.


Every student that registers and gets a $10 donation will receive a pedometer to track their steps. We have some FUN incentives planned that will come out next week, so stay tuned!


We will be asking parents to help for this event! 20 Parents will be allowed to help run the event, we just ask that you’re able to stay all day. Lunch will be provided for ALL volunteers!


Please click here to sign up to volunteer for the Rush

PLAYGROUND USE AFTER SCHOOL

The elementary school playgrounds have been reserved for the Community Education and Recreation Department Kids Club Programs Monday through Friday from the final afternoon bell until 5:00 pm. For the safety of all children, we are asking that non-Kids Club students refrain from using the playgrounds until after 5 pm on weekdays. Thank you.

MASKS

It is always a good idea to have an extra mask in your student's backpack. We have had several students forget to bring a mask in the morning or lose their mask at lunch. Thanks for your help.

PICTURE RETAKE DAY THURSDAY, 10/28

If your child has not had a picture taken already, it will be taken on Thursday, 10/28/21. Ordering information will be given out at the time of pictures.

If a picture was already taken, but a retake is needed, please let your teacher know so your child can be sent for pictures. Please return the original picture package to the photographer at the time of pictures. The same package will be ordered with the new image. New packages will not be received until the original package is returned.

Please contact customer service with any questions at 262-780-2901 or customerservice@schoolandsportpics.com

LUNCH MENU UPDATES & SWAPPED ITEMS

Our FPS Food Service Department is currently experiencing a number of changes in food supply offerings due to shortages or certain items. If you have a child that has certain dietary needs or restrictions, please review the online Nutrislice menu offerings for your building more closely so you can be aware of any food items that may have been swapped. Our Food Service staff is updating the menu daily with changes and they expect regular updates and food replacements for the foreseeable future.

LOST & FOUND

Click here to see pictures of the items in our lost and found. We will be purging lost and found items more often so it’s important for children to keep close tabs on their belongings. It is also suggested that if possible, student items be labeled with the first and last name on it so that we can get it back to the student if it becomes lost. All items not picked up after 2 weeks will be donated.

FIRST STUDENT BUS

If you need to contact the bus company after school hours please dial 414-422-2020. Please always try to contact the school office first.

ATTENDANCE REMINDER

ANY absence including leaving early and arriving late are reported on a google form. HERE is the link to report absences. It would be a good idea to bookmark this link for your convenience.
