Spirit Night tonight!

Join us at Mooyah Burger (Parker Road near Preston) from 5 to 9 p.m. for Robinson Spirit Night! A percentage of your order total will be donated back to Robinson PTA – good food and good support for the school!

Keep PTA growing strong!

Did you know that Robinson Middle School PTA just earned the Early Bird Achievement Award for meeting 100% of last year’s PTA membership enrollment? That is AWESOME, but now we need your help! We need Y O U to join PTA and be a part of the largest and oldest child advocacy association in the United States!

When you sign up to be a member of the PTA, you are not committing to being a volunteer. You are showing your support in an organization where funding directly benefits the children and staff of Robinson Middle School. Membership dues help support Teacher and Department Wish List items, Red Ribbon Week, Music Programs, Science Lab Equipment, School Store, Environmental Program and so much more! If you have time to volunteer, great, but it is certainly not a requirement to be a member of the PTA.

PLEASE go to the Robinson PTA website and look for the "Join RMS PTA" link under Quick Links. Make sure to sign up your spouse too! Grandparents and neighbors can also join PTA to show support in our school. We can win awards in many ways and always want to increase our numbers every year. We also strive to get the MARS Award every year, which involves the number of male members in our PTA. Now we must do our part as parents!

Also, did you know that the only way to get access to the online or printed Robinson Directory is to JOIN PTA! The deadline to be included in the Directory or get access to the Online Directory is Wednesday, October 14th.

In order to have your information listed in the Directory, you must fill out the online waiver. If you signed up at the walkabout and have not gone in to create your PTA Membership Toolkit account online or to complete the directory waiver, please do so. You do not have to pay again. We can find your account online and manually reflect you as a paid member. Creating an account is the only way we know what information should be listed online or published in the paper Directory.

Don't delay ... JOIN TODAY! The deadline is fast approaching – Wednesday, October 14!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Thank you so much for your support!

Elissa Reed, VP Membership
