Robison Alumni Scholarship
Each of the 35 applicants completed a form and wrote an essay. Many mentioned previous teachers at Robison. Know that you are making a life-lasting impact on your students. Once the winner is announced at the Cy-Woods awards assembly, I will then share the name and the essay with you.
E-Track (Round 2)
Slideshows and selection sheets will be ready Tuesday morning so that students can view their choices and make their selections. Notice the short time period for doing so. Teachers, please remind students to notice the number of students that can be accommodated in each group. They might want to think about this when selecting their top choices.

Our Staff is #BARnone!
Thank you for our teachers who have taken Saturdays to attend STAAR training and for coming back and implementing this new learning.
Thank you to our p.e. coaches who have been diligently planning field days for this week. The students have learned how each of the events worked while in p.e. so their field days will run smoothly.
Thank you to all teachers for reaching out to your parents to make sure your students have drinks for field day.
