NOTES & UPDATES FROM DR. MILLER

During these next several weeks it is imperative that students are here every day and are entering those green gates ready for success and learning. There are still end of year goals to reach and lots of assessments to complete.


Please note:

SBAC Testing block/window is from May 6 - May 24 for all 3rd - 8th-grade students.

May 6 - 10 - SBAC English

May 13-17 - SBAC Math

May 20 - 24 - SBAC Science and Makeups


Additional Updates:

1. Robinson will receive an exterior painting of our campus this SUMMER 2019.


2. Robinson will receive upgrades to our school's HVAC system and additional upgrades for 2020-21. These upgrades will cause our "entire campus: staff and students" to be moved to a different location. More details will be forthcoming throughout the 2019-20 school year for parents and community regarding the move for Robinson.


3. Due to increasing instructional support needs on our campus, we have run out of space to house the programs and interventions needed. Therefore, we are going to have to move the current location of the Parent Center housed in room 32 for the 2019-20 school year. The Parent Center will now become a "shared room space" with the WRAP program. More details will be forthcoming about the "shared space use" in the application for both Parent center and WRAP/After School program for the 2019-20 school year.
