PANERA FUNDRAISER

Be sure to join us for our December Fundraiser on December 8, 2021 from 4 until 8PM at the Panera located at 7840 W Layton Ave in Greenfield. Let them know you are there to support Robinwood by showing the flier below.

REPORT CARD INFORMATION

On Friday, December 10th, Trimester 1 Report Cards will be distributed for your child via email. Within the message will be a secure link to a pdf download of the Trimester 1 Report Card. There are a few steps you can take in preparation for the release of these report cards, in order to make the process a smooth one for you.


First, to access the report, you will need to click on the secure link within the body of the email. When you click on the link, you will be prompted to enter a password. The password is your child’s student number. This number can be found by logging into your PowerSchool Parent Access account. Once logged into PowerSchool, it is the 6 digit number at the top center portion of the screen. It will begin with a 5. If you are unable to locate this number, please contact the building secretary at your child’s school.

TRADITION HERE AT ROBINWOOD

In order to showcase the many cultures that make up our Robinwood Family, we will again be displaying a Cultural Tree in the lobby outside of the library. We are asking interested families to donate a decoration to be placed on the tree. This item can be either purchased or handmade. It should however depict a part of your culture or native country. Please place any decorations in a bag with a note as to what holiday and country they represent. We will then label the items with a tag stating that information. These items will not be returned, they will be kept to be reused in following years.


Also, in keeping the spirit of giving alive, beginning the week of November 30th, Robinwood's Student Leadership Team will be partnering with Southbrook Church to host a winter clothing drive that will benefit refugee Afghan families currently living at Fort McCoy. Items will be collected from November 30th - December 17th. Collection bins will be placed underneath the Cultural Tree where students can place their donated items. New or gently used items currently being requested are below:

  • Children & Adult Winter Items such as: coats, hats, mittens, scarves, boots and snow pants.

Thank you for your support!

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT SURVEY

During the week of December 13th, your student will be participating in a Student Engagement Survey. This survey was written by the district and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It asks students to respond to questions in areas related to environment, learning, and relationships. Information from this survey is used by teachers and administrators to identify areas of improvement related to the student experience. If you have questions about the survey, please contact Mr. Nelson

DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Wisconsin weather is upon us! Please make sure your son/daughter is dressed appropriately for outdoor recess. Coats, gloves, and hats are necessary for the impending cold weather. However, this being Wisconsin, it can become warm and sunny by noontime. Please remind your child if they choose to remove their jacket during recess they are to be tied around their waist and not left on the playground. The decision to have an outdoor or indoor recess is based on both the wind speed and temperature at 11:30 am. If it is an outside recess day, all students must go outdoors. Please label your child's coat, hat & mittens with their name.

ROBINWOOD SNOW BAGS AVAILABLE

Robinwood has snow bags available for $8.00 each. If you would like to purchase one please send exact cash or make a check payable to Franklin Public School to the school office. These are great bags to hold snow pants, mittens, hats, boots, & any other winter gear. It even has a spot for your student's name. See photo below:

MASK REMINDERS

As we continue to require masks for students, please remember the following:

  • It’s a good idea to wash your child’s mask frequently, ideally daily if possible.

  • Please ensure that your child has a few masks to rotate throughout the average school week

  • Please send an extra mask in your child’s backpack in the event they need another mask

  • When choosing masks for your child, please look for masks that have 2 or more layers of breathable fabric, cover their nose and mouth, fit snugly across the sides of their face, and don’t have gaps.


If you need help with getting additional masks, please contact the school’s main office.

LUNCH MENU UPDATES & SWAPPED ITEMS

Our FPS Food Service Department is currently experiencing a number of changes in food supply offerings due to shortages or certain items. If you have a child that has certain dietary needs or restrictions, please review the online Nutrislice menu offerings for your building more closely so you can be aware of any food items that may have been swapped. Our Food Service staff is updating the menu daily with changes and they expect regular updates and food replacements for the foreseeable future.

LOST & FOUND

Click here to see pictures of the items in our lost and found. We will be purging lost and found items more often so it’s important for children to keep close tabs on their belongings. It is also suggested that if possible, student items be labeled with the first and last name on it so that we can get it back to the student if it becomes lost. All items not picked up after 2 weeks will be donated.

ATTENDANCE REMINDER

ANY absence including leaving early and arriving late are reported on a google form. HERE is the link to report absences. It would be a good idea to bookmark this link for your convenience.

ROBINWOOD RUSH

Robinwood RUSH was once again a HUGE success. Final totals are still being tallied. We are going to be VERY close to that final goal of $20,000. It isn’t too late if you forgot to turn in your pledge sheet and money. For everyone who did write a check, those will be cashed this week. As always, we appreciate the support of our Robinwood community. We are excited to work with Mr. Nelson and staff to provide some great enrichment activities and entertainment to our students while still being mindful of our current health crisis. None of this would be possible without your support, so thank you! Incentives were ordered and will be going home before Christmas. This includes all wristbands and pedometers. Lunch and class incentives with Mr. Bauer and Mr. Nelson will be scheduled for later this year.

HOLIDAY SHOP

Starting next week, our students will get to shop our very own HOLIDAY SHOP! Prices range from $.25 to $16.25. There truly is something for everyone. Please look in your students backpack or folder as there will be a flyer and budget envelope coming home. You and your child can preview the upcoming shop at: https://8232550.holidaytreasures.com. This will make it easy for your child to do some visual shopping before entering the shop with their teacher next week. We will have each class slot sign up for one time slot from Monday-Thursday. We will also be open on Friday for drop-ins if a student has their teacher's permission. Friday will be used as a day if someone accidentally forgot their money, if they were absent on their shopping day or forgot someone on their list. This is NOT a shopping day to do a second round. Please ask your teacher what day they picked as it will go around their class schedule. Sign-ups are going out today to teachers. Gift wrapping will be available as well for all students. Looking forward to welcoming all of our students.

SPIRITWEAR UPDATE

Spiritwear will be arriving next week right in time for the holiday. Please be on the lookout by the end of the next week. We will get those orders to you as soon as they come in. If you indicated that you’d like it in the office for pickup for a holiday present, we will have them there and ready at your convenience. Someone will give you a call when they are ready for pickup! All other items will be coming home with your oldest child that attends Robinwood. Thank you for your support!
