  • Family Newsletter 5/15/22

    Hello everyone-

    We are getting close to the end and I must say that it is bittersweet. The days are really flying by and I'm trying to cherish every minute with the kids still in the building. This week we made more memories- we had our 4th and 5th grade trivia, Mrs. Driscoll's class went to the Seeds of Kindness, 5th grade had a pizza party in the OLC, and our pre K had their graduation. What fun all around!

    We also got to start a new fun tradition at Robinson this week. We had students transition up to the next grade on Thursday to meet all of the teachers in the grade that they are going to. The kids shared that they enjoyed it and so did the teachers. We will definitely keep doing this in the future. The purpose is to help reduce anxiety for students. Having a face to a name and knowing what the learning space will look like should help students feel more secure and able to predict what it will be like when they get the class placement information this summer.

    Special thank you to the Glendale Kiwanis Club, they brought books for our kindergarteners this week. Thank you!

    The Robinson Reading Challenge is coming to a close. Please return your child's reading form on Monday. It's okay if you lost the paper, just write down any books your child read at home 4th quarter. If we hit our goal of 1,000 books, we will tape Dr. OH to the gym wall on Field Day this Friday- YAY!

    Lots of events again this week. Please look at the calendar below. Reminder that you can pick up your cardinals tickets in the office. Thanks!

    We found out the 4th grade talent show that was previously shared did not work- you may access it here-

    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.

    Take Care-

  • Connecting with the Counselors

    May 8, 2022

    Good Evening,

    Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and care givers/guardians who fulfill the role of a mom for our kiddos! We celebrate you today and all you do that is seen (and unseen), as your child's first teacher. We want to say Happy FIRST Mother's Day to our very own Mrs. Sheilds-Capilla. She welcomed her first child just days ago!

    Can you believe we are already in the last few weeks of the school year? We can't! This is the last counselors message of the year. We have a lot of information to share tonight, so settle in and read on (smile).

    Last week Mrs. Cohen and Ms. Harris taught counseling lessons to all Robinson students on Tuesday and Wednesday. The focus of these lessons was Identity and Differences for students in Kindergarten-4th grade. See below for more information. Our 5th graders lesson was about problem solving and offered a special goodbye rock-- yes you read that right! Each 5th graders given a rock as a parting memento of being a student at Robinson. There is more information about that below as well.

    Thank you for partnering with us this year. We love being a part of your student's life at Robinson each day. Whether it is in grade level lessons, small groups, at lunch and recess, or through one- on-one sessions, we feel honored to get to be a part of their skill building and life's journey.

    If you missed April's communication, you can access it from this link:

    Have a wonderful last 2-ish weeks and, as always, if you need to connect with one of us (except for Mrs. Sheilds-Capilla) you can find our contact information at the end of this message. With all of the transitions and changes at this time of the year, there may be a slight delay in getting back to you, but our goal is always to respond within 24 hours of your communication. If that has not been the case for any recent emails, please give us another reminder and reach out again! Thank you for understanding.

  • Kirkwood School District Foundation Announces 2022 Scholarship Recipients

    On May 10, the Kirkwood School District Foundation (KSDF) held the annual Named Awards Scholarship recipient ceremony. This year, $92,000 in scholarships were awarded to 40 students and recent graduates of Kirkwood High School. The Named Awards Scholarship program was created in memory or in honor of students, family and friends of the community. The scholarships are made possible from KSDF because of the generous support of our donors, especially donor families, Kirkwood parents, staff and alumni. Recipients completed an online application. Once the application process closed, the KSDF Named Awards Committee reviewed all applications to determine which students to interview. In March and April, the committee conducted interviews and selected the scholarship recipients. “Congratulations to each of the 2022 KSDF Named Award recipients,” said KSDF Named Award Chairman Dr. Derek Byers. “We are proud of you and all of your accomplishments. You all will represent Kirkwood well in the world, and hopefully some of you will come back to continue making this community even better. We especially thank all the generous donor families - those present tonight and not - who have made these awards possible. We are truly fortunate to be in a community where gifts like these truly make a difference to our students while also honoring the legacies of some very memorable Pioneers.”

  • Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Present Early Reader Books to Kindergarteners

    The Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Club presented each of the kindergarten students in the Kirkwood School District (KSD) with an early reader book as part of the service club’s Early Reader Program. The program was initiated in spring 2006 when the Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Club gifted books to each of KSD’s 275 kindergarteners. This year, the club members gifted books to each of KSD’s 449 kindergarteners. Over the years, the Kiwanis Early Reader Program has become an annual “graduation” gift for KSD kindergartners and celebrates of the young students’ love of reading. The Kirkwood teachers selected the books from a list of age-appropriate books prepared by Kiwanis Club member Lynn Bosso from the Kirkwood Public Library. Glendale-Kirkwood Kiwanis Club Lynn Bosso delivered the books to Westchester Elementary on May 10. Kindergarten students at North Glendale, Tillman, Keysor, and Robinson will receive their books over the next week.
