This newsletter is full of important information. I am trying to highlight the information that we are getting the most questions about.
Thank you to those families who were able to join the webinar or watch the webinar. I have put links to the webinars below as well as the Q & A page of questions from this week.
We are so excited to be nearing the start of school and we look forward to reconnecting with our students and families. I appreciate all that our staff is doing to make this year's online learning experience even better than last years.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns. I am here to support you and your family and I look forward to meeting you soon!
Take Care and Be Well-
Thank you for summer tutoring
Stories for this week
Thanks for joining me for our reading today! I first story is a picutre book that is set to music and read by the author. The story features children who are viewing the world through their windows because they can't go outside yet. The second story is a continuation of our chapter book The One and Only Bob. I read a little over half of Chapter 2.
It is not the school's or PTO's responsibility to assist families in the formation of learning pods. Our PTO will not be organizing outside resources regarding learning pods. They are volunteers that assist the district when it is requested. Our district has an incredible plan in place and I know that we will make this as smooth as possible for everyone.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Robinson administrative team.
The PTO appreciates your understanding and patience as we continue to await further direction from KSD. We will be working with PTO and how they can support families and staff once we have all the information we need.
PTO is working with a school supply company, Bright SchoolKitz, to provide families an opportunity to purchase all of their school supplies with a click of a button. Once ordered, the supplies will be shipped directly to the student's address within 2-3 weeks. This option would allow families to purchase supplies without having to go into stores or find each item independently. We hope that you will find this service to be convenient and efficient. Please visit the website to view supplies and prices. www.schoolkitz.com
Visit our school webpage to view the list of supplies your child will need.
