Hello everyone-


Wow, what a week! Veteran's Day was so amazing! Thank you to our special area teachers for your hard work and support to prepare and execute this amazing event! We have gotten a lot of positive feedback from families and community members. Thank you everyone for helping us to honor and support those who have served. I wanted to share a message from a community member:

Thank you for the wonderful Veterans Day observance today at Robinson Elementary School. Driving around the school with the children, teachers, staff, and parents expressing their appreciation was the most moving veteran experience I have had in the past 50 years. I was not sure what to expect, and was blown away by the sincere outpouring of appreciation I felt.


Thank you to our PTO Outdoor Committee for your work cleaning up ur grounds yesterday! We appreciate your work each month to keep our school looking good and teaching our kids the importance of taking care of the Earth.


Our Fall PTO Fundraiser has kicked off online on Friday. Kids will begin bringing in their change on Monday. They are super excited by the prizes we have for them. Please note that only cash brought into the building counts toward their classroom prizes. Donations made online or in the classroom go toward the building goals. Thanks in advance for your generosity and support. Our PTO does so many amazing things for our building, we honestly couldn't do it all without them! THANK YOU!


As you know Covid vaccines are now available to children in our age bracket. Please click here to watch a short informational video from our Nurse Stowers regarding the vaccine and school.


Please reach out at any time to share any questions, concerns, or ideas. I am here to help and support you and your family. Thanks for all you do to help keep our students and staff safe.


Take Care-

Angeline

Be the Change- Fall Fundraiser




We all belong, small ones and tall ones. We can all make a difference in small and big ways.


Join us for an easy, no fuss fall fundraiser where kids and adults alike can help shape our school community! All proceeds will go to the Robinson PTO to enhance the educational and social environment for our students, staff and families. Without your generosity none of this would be possible! Ever wonder what the Robinson PTO does? Get a glimpse from our students as they share what they love about the PTO in this video.


There is no donation too small! And even our kids can Be the Change by bringing in spare change or by talking to families and friends about investing in their school community.


The kids can participate in a spare change drive Monday, Nov 15th-Friday, Nov 19th. Families and anyone connected to Robinson will be able to donate online or via cash/check.


Donate Here!

Hello Robinson parents,

This week you should have received your child's Square 1 art as well as an order form from the company. This form will allow you to place orders up until Nov. 19 ... if you have any questions, please let me know, I am happy to help. Orders can be placed online for your convenience. These orders make for wonderful gifts for family and friends as well as great keepsakes for the kids - I'm especially excited about the masks available through the online order option, very cool!


Thanks for your consideration in ordering and your continued support of the arts at Robinson!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Maldonado
