PTO News

September 2018

Welcome from the PTO President, Karen Finke

Welcome back Rockets! I hope the beginning of school has gone smoothly for your family. As we start this 2018-2019 school year, we are excited to offer a PTO website www.robisonelementarypto.com as a site for all things Robison PTO! We are again using our MySchoolAnywhere (MSA) PTO system for additional communication, an online directory of families, and our online store


More information will be coming your way as our volunteering and events get underway. Remember, with our enhanced building security, arrive a few minutes early for your volunteer time to allow for check-in. We are looking forward to partnering with you for a great year! Please contact me with any questions.

Staff Appreciation

Thanks to our PTO dollars at work, our amazing Robison staff was welcomed back with a lunch provided by PTO from Veros on Meet the Teacher day. Teachers also received a school supply store gift card to assist them in making classroom purchases. Our hard working paras received a gift card from Panera. Our staff is well on their way to making #SuccessatRES!

Spirit Shop

Mark your calendars, Rockets! Our first Spirit Shop is coming Friday, September 28th and it’s sure to have something for everyone! Parents, this is a student favorite so please be on the lookout for an opportunity to volunteer during lunch times. Students, you will bring cash and shop on the stage. Parent helpers shop alongside the children to choose their items. Get ready for some fun goodies like erasers, pens, and Robison logo items.

What is the SRC?? The Science Resource Center is a district run facility located off Telge Road, near the Exhibition Center. Animals are housed and cared for here by a dedicated staff. In addition, each grade level K-5 has animal group demonstrations, or demos, assigned to their grade based on curriculum. Parent volunteers attend a training for these grade level animal groups. Then, when the demo is scheduled for a presentation day at Robison, trained volunteers pick up the animals from the SRC, bring them to Robison so our students get this super fun, science class "extra"!! We can only provide this opportunity for our students with trained parent volunteers, as it's us, the parents, that present the information. Your kiddo will be so impressed with you! Training takes place at the SRC (11206 Telge Rd) No registration is required, just let me know if you do attend a training session by emailing Karen Finke


Two sessions are offered per grade level, just choose the one that is best for you. If you have trained in the past for a demo, you do not need to retrain, unless you want a refresher. The SRC training is for adults only, no preschool aged siblings please.


Here are the September training dates:

20th - 5th Grade Bird Study Skins 9:30 - 11:30 am

26th - 1st Grade Eggs and Nests 9:30 - 11:30 am
