BLAST Band Recognition

This year our students have the opportunity to earn a BLAST band. It is not an easy achievement, as students must pay 300 BLAST bucks to earn the privilege of having this special band. Students who earn BLAST bands should wear them everyday. Surprise rewards will be given throughout the year. Before the holidays, all of our students who had achieved this honor were called to the front office for a special party in the teacher's lounge.


BLAST is the acronym that is used for our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) system.

B=Be Respectful

L=Leader

A=Accountable

S=Safe

T=Team Player


Staff members utilize BLAST bucks to recognize students for displaying these positive behaviors.


Our PBIS store will be making its way to classrooms soon so that students may use their BLAST bucks to purchase other rewards.

King Arthur Bake for Good Program

Thank you to all of our 5th grade students and families for their participation in the King Arthur's Bake for Good program. We had an amazing response, and Cy-Fair Helping Hands was so grateful for all of the donated bread. Thank you for helping to make a difference in our community!

Holiday Adoption Program

Our holiday adoption program was a success once again! Our Robison families made the holidays brighter for 50 students from two other CFISD schools. The gift of giving is something that our students have learned so well. Thank you for your generosity to make this tradition possible.

Multicultural Festival

We are excited to host the 2nd Annual Multicultural Festival at Robison on Tuesday, January 22 at 6:00 pm. Last year was the first year to hold this event, and it was a great success. We'd love to have even more families participate. If you have not already noticed or returned your RSVP, a copy is below. The evening will consist of food tasting, learning about the cultures of our families, and there will also be a fashion show for those interested. Come on out and bring your family to this fun event!

E-Track

Our next round of E-Track is scheduled to begin next week. Our students and staff always look forward to this fun time. Last semester, one of our e-track groups loved knitting so much, that they decided to knit hats which will be donated to those in need. Mrs. Hartman led this group of young ladies and will share her knowledge of loom knitting with a new group of students again. This is one of the many enriching groups that we have for e-track.

The Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District Special Education Department provides educational services to an estimated 8,000 students with special needs.

Teachers, instructional aides, speech pathologists and related service personnel provide instruction and related services to students who have a disability. Students are eligible for special education services from the age of 3 through 21. Students who have hearing and vision disabilities may receive services from birth.

To be eligible for special education services, students must meet eligibility requirements as a student with an orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, auditory impairment, visual impairment, diagnosis of deaf/blind, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, learning disability, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, autism, non-categorical early childhood, or traumatic brain injury.

Cypress Fairbanks ISD instructional arrangements for elementary school-aged students include in-class support, resource classes and speech/language therapy.

In addition to receiving instruction at the on-site campuses, students may be served by itinerant teachers, speech pathologists, and/or an audiologist at their home campus.

Are you the parent of a pre-school (3-5 years) or school-aged child and have concerns regarding your child’s physical, speech, and/or emotional development?
