Hello everyone-


What a busy week! I wanted to share follow up from last week's communication regarding the student mySaebrs report. We are the first school to communicate these and when we went to print them this week, It was not a simple. just click here process. So, I apologize they did not get out this week as intended, and we will be sending them as soon as we can.


The weather this week was so nice! I hope you all were able to get out with the kids and enjoy the unseasonably warm weather. I know our teachers and kids were able to take advantage of all our outdoor learning spaces, nature walks, and Meramac's campus. What a great way to kickoff December.


Our building had the huge map of Missouri this week. I put the great picture below. Thanks to our staff for making sure our kiddos have fun while learning each and every day!


Please reach out at any time to share any questions, concerns, or ideas. I am here to help and support you and your family. Thanks for all you do to help keep our students and staff safe.

Dear Robinson Parent or Guardian,

Beginning on January 18th, 2022, our physical education classes will be participating in an in-house skating program. The skates will be delivered directly to the school and used inside our gymnasium.

This skating unit is being implemented because of its emphasis as an “Aerobic Lifetime Activity”. Aerobic exercise helps to balance chemicals in the body and the brain. These chemicals affect attention, focus, and impulse control. Aerobic activities not only raise heart rates’, but they balance neurochemicals, enhancing the students’ ability to learn and achieve.


The fee for this unit will be $7 per student. The fee includes delivery and pickup of the equipment as well as use of the skates for four days of skating. Due to insurance liabilities we are not allowing students to use their own skates. Students will also learn basic skating skills such as starting, stopping, forward skating, backward skating, and a number of safety tips for being a smart skater.

Please have your child return the permission slip to their classroom teacher with the $7 no later than December10th, 2021.
