~The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.~

Wondering what that bracelet your child is wearing (or not wearing) is all about?

At the end of each month Robertson students that have achieved "The Big Three" are provided a bracelet which gains them access to an extra recess on a Friday afternoon. The "Big Three" are:

  1. Missing no more than one day of school the previous month.
  2. Meeting their WIG (Wildly Important Goal) for reading in the month.
  3. Finish each school day on the rocket chart at green (ready to learn) or higher.

How did your child do last month? In October 46% of students accomplished "The Big Three." We are hoping for over 50% in November. Please encourage your child to set this as a goal.

BRRRRRRRRRR! Winter is here.

Please make sure your student dresses appropriately for the cold weather, all students go outside. (*students must have a doctor's note to stay inside during recess*) Mr. Hummel closely monitors the weather to determine if all the students will stay inside for recess or go outside.
