Robison Elementary Rocket Register

January 2020

Message from Mrs. Gerletti

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! A new year is always a great time to reflect on why we are grateful and for setting goals. I wanted to let you know that I returned to Robison this week! I am grateful that I've been released to be at work doing what I love. As I continue to receive treatment, I will have some occasional absences, but I will be available most days. The students and staff have given me such a warm welcome, and I'm eager to see you as well! Thanks to our amazing staff and administrators, as well as Mrs. Thompson, everything ran as smoothly as possible during my absence. I look forward to getting to know our new students and their families this semester.


I've told the students that I am being extra cautious about staying healthy, and with it being flu season, I'm being careful to steer clear of the clinic. :) To keep everyone healthy, please remember to keep your student(s) home if they are running a fever or if they are contagious in any way. This might be a great time to wash backpacks given the number of students who were ill before the holidays. We certainly want our students at school learning, but we also want them to take time to heal from any illnesses.


I am wishing you all a healthy and happy 2020!

2nd Grade Program Information

Second Grade Parents,

The second grade program, “Best Friends Forever”, will be Tuesday, February 11th. We are having two performances that night. Groups A and B will perform at 6:00 p.m. and they need to be in the music room at 5:45 p.m. Groups C and D will perform at 7:00 p.m. and they will need to be in the music room at 6:45 p.m.

Each child will need to wear blue jeans, tennis shoes and a solid red, white or pink t-shirt. We are trying to avoid shirts with words or patterns on them. Hobby Lobby sells solid colored shirts for about $3.00. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks for your kind support.

Holiday Adoption Program

Our holiday adoption program was a success once again because of the generosity of our Robison families! This project made the holidays brighter for 50 students from another CFISD school. The gift of giving is something that our students have learned so well. Thank you for your generosity to make this tradition possible.

Child Find Information

The Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District Special Education Department provides educational services to an estimated 8,000 students with special needs.

Teachers, instructional aides, speech pathologists and related service personnel provide instruction and related services to students who have a disability. Students are eligible for special education services from the age of 3 through 21. Students who have hearing and vision disabilities may receive services from birth.

To be eligible for special education services, students must meet eligibility requirements as a student with an orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, auditory impairment, visual impairment, diagnosis of deaf/blind, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, learning disability, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, autism, non-categorical early childhood, or traumatic brain injury.

Cypress Fairbanks ISD instructional arrangements for elementary school-aged students include in-class support, resource classes and speech/language therapy. Preschool Programs for Children with Disabilities (PPCD), adaptive behavior, and LIFE Skills classes are offered as cluster services at the elementary level.

In-class support, resource classes, LIFE Skills, adaptive behavior and speech/language services are available at all secondary level campuses.

Related services may include psychological services, occupational therapy, physical therapy, orientation and mobility training, school health services, adaptive equipment and special transportation.

Other special education service options include the Dorothy Carlton Center, the Adaptive Behavior Center, homebound, adaptive physical education, itinerant and on-site services to the visually impaired.

As part of the Northwest Harris County Cooperative for the Hearing Impaired, services for students who have auditory impairments are offered at Birkes Elementary, Hancock Elementary, Spillane Middle School and Cy-Ridge High School. In addition to receiving instruction at the on-site campuses, students may be served by itinerant teachers, speech pathologists, and/or an audiologist at their home campus.

Are you the parent of a pre-school (3-5 years) or school-aged child and have concerns regarding your child’s physical, speech, and/or emotional development? Is your child experiencing academic problems which could interfere significantly with educational success? If so, contact the Special Education Department at 281-897-6400 to discuss your concerns and learn more about the referral process.
