The PTO newsletter is in a different format this month. You may click on the button below to access this information.

Welcome to Our New Assistant Principal, Mrs. McCollister

We are excited to welcome Mrs. McCollister to Robison as our new assistant principal! Mrs. McCollister has served as a counselor at Adam Elementary for the past seven years. She currently serves as the SOS (Special Opportunity School) counselor at Adam. She also has experience teaching first, second, third, and fourth grades at a few CFISD elementary schools--Sheridan, Birkes, and Adam. While at Birkes Elementary, Mrs. McCollister was selected as their Teacher of the Year. She is a product of CFISD, having graduated from Cypress Creek High School. She obtained her bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University, and her master's from Sam Houston State University. Please join me in welcoming Mrs. McCollister to the Robison community. She will be serving as the assistant principal for our first, third, and fifth-grade students.

1st Annual Daddy~Daughter Dance

We are excited to share that Robison will be having our very first Daddy~Daughter Dance on Saturday, May 12 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Tickets may be purchased on School Cash. There is a link in the invitation below. Tickets are $15 per couple (daddy/daughter) and $5 for each additional daughter.


The theme is "Denim and Diamonds" so feel free to dress up your denim or even go a little more formal if you choose. There will be precious backdrops for pictures, a DJ for dancing, and refreshments. We are having the event at Spillane Middle School in order to accommodate more guests; however, space is limited. Please purchase your tickets early in order to ensure a spot!


Dads might want to give their daughters a corsage, but we are leaving that completely optional and up to you! We are not selling corsages for this event.


A volunteer sign-up will be sent soon for anyone wishing to help with set-up, serving guests, or clean up.

Library Celebration News!

KAJEETS are here! These are (Free)Wi-Fi hotspots and computers LOANED to students for academic purposes. Students may check these out in the afternoon so they can bring them home in the evening (overnight). These Chromebooks were purchased with district library money, so during the day they remain in the library for student use. In order for this to run smoothly, the students need to reserve the Kajeet/Chromebooks for their students through a sign-out sheet located at the library. In the afternoon, the Chromebooks will be delivered. They must be returned first thing in the morning. There is a required parent and student agreement to be filled out and kept on file for this school year. Please feel free to contact Ms. Wolfe with any questions at 281-213-1712 or emerson.wolfe@cfisd.net.


BOOK FAIR – our Scholastic Book Fair will run April 16th – April 20th!

Book preview for Pre-K and Kinder will be on April 13th. Family Night at the Book Fair will be April 17th from 4-7 PM. Cash and Credit Cards Only.

Please visit our Book Fair online at scholastic.com/fair then enter zip code & shop the online store April 11-24. Online purchases will be delivered to the teacher. “Sign up Genius” is available for volunteer helpers. Use this link to volunteer: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080549aaab2faaf85-scholastic


Thank you for your support. Ms. Wolfe

Kindergarten & Pre-K Registration for 2018-2019

We are so excited to have pre-registration for Pre-K and Kindergarten on April 18, 2018, 9:00 – 3:00. To be eligible for Pre-K your child has to qualify either financially, English is the second language, a military connection, if a parent or guardian has ever received the Texas Star Award or if the student is in foster care. Your child will also have to be 4 by September 1, 2018, to be eligible for Pre-K. For Kindergarten, your child will have to be 5 by September 1, 2018.


The list of required documents is shown below. CFISD has made a change in the proof of residency documents required for registration. Only a parent or guardian is able to register a student. If you have any legal documentation such as judge signed placement paperwork or divorce decree please bring that as well and we will be happy to make a copy for your child’s records.


We ask for your help in spreading the word about registration. We also ask that if you have a child who will be attending kindergarten to please register your child in April rather than waiting until August. This allows us to hire the correct amount of staff and hopefully avoid starting the year understaffed. Thank you so much!


If you have any questions please call Angela Johnson, our Registrar, at 281-213-1702. If you cannot make it April 18th don’t worry you can make an appointment with Mrs. Johnson. We look forward to seeing all or our new Robison Rockets.

Field Day

We hope you are able to come cheer on your student(s) at Field Day! If your child purchased a t-shirt, they will bring their shirt home April 16, 17, or 18. If you did not purchase a shirt for your child, they may just wear a shirt that matches their team color. Your child's teacher will share their team color with you.

Teacher Requests for 2018-2019

As we plan for next year, please know that careful consideration will be given to each student’s placement. Your child’s current teachers and the assistant principals will work together using their knowledge of your child’s learning style, personality, and academic strengths or concerns to make the best classroom assignment for next year. If you have information about your child that you feel needs to be strongly considered, please email both assistant principals carrie.mccollister@cfisd.net AND courtney.nespeca@cfisd.net no later than Friday, April 27. Information that is considered to be helpful includes information about your child’s learning style and/or personality, as well as your concerns with meeting their academic, emotional or social needs. Please refrain from asking for your child to be assigned to a particular teacher, as teaching assignments have not been finalized for next year. Please trust that we know our staff well, so the information described above is what helps us to match your child with a teacher in the best way possible. If there are specific qualities in a teacher that have proven to be successful for your child, please include that information as well. We take this responsibility very seriously, and we appreciate your trust in our judgment. Teacher assignments will be mailed in August, prior to our Meet the Teacher event.

Multicultural Festival--May 1, 2018

We are excited to share that Robison will be having a multicultural festival this year. This is an event for all families. We'd love to showcase the many cultures that make up this wonderful school community. Please see the attached RSVP form below for more information. A paper copy of the flyer will be coming home next week, but you are welcome to print this off and return it with your child anytime.
