  • Thank you for your support!

    Hello everyone-

    Thank you to everyone who helped promote and support Prop R. This will have lasting positive effects for our students at Robinson. We are so excited for the future!

    I am writing to share with you the important work that we are beginning at Robinson. As I am finishing up my first year, we are coming out of a global pandemic, and the district is beginning the work of creating a strategic plan, we felt that it was time to gather input from stakeholders to begin building a vision for Robinson. Please click here to view a short video regarding our vision work.

    We do not currently have a mission, vision, or school improvement plan. We are going to collect input over the next couple of months and begin drafting the statement early this summer. (We have a committee of stakeholders who will do this work- please use this google survey if you are interested in joining our committee.). We will then get feedback from all stakeholders on the draft statement and then revise it in time for the start of the school year. The timing of the revision will coincide with the completion of the strategic plan so that when we are revising we are ensuring that we are aligning our vision to the goals and mission set forth by our district.

    Please take a few minutes to complete this brief three question survey sharing what you see for the future of Robinson and our students. Our students will also be working with their teachers to complete a survey before the end of the year.

    Please reach out if you have any questions, concerns, ideas, or if we can provide support in any way. Thank you for your partnership in keeping the Robinson community safe.

    Take Care-

    Angeline

    Good Evening,

    This week we have a short, 3 day week. We seem to sometimes be overwhelmed on the short weeks--both adults and students. Sometimes a good strategy for a short week is to treat it like a "regular" week. Sticking to our routine and structures for the 3 days we are in session will help all of our kiddos be more successful learners in the compact week. We often spend a lot of time thinking about and talking about our own kids. This week, we will still think about them, but we will also be thinking about others. We will explore how our kids interact with others and think about them through the lens of social awareness.

    Last week I began a review about our SEL learning. I shared a video about SEL (there is another video this week) and wrote about self-awareness, one of the 5 CASEL core competencies. This week we will look closer at Social Awareness. As a reminder, the five competencies are:

    • Self-Awareness
    • Social Awareness
    • Self-Management
    • Relationship Skills
    • Responsible Decision Making

    This past Friday night our Robinson PTO Cares Food Pantry was open. Our entire counseling team is so grateful to our PTO for the wonderful partnership in this work. We are especially grateful to the Robinson PTO Cares Committee co-chairs Kristi Conroy and Shannon Ross. They, and their amazing committee members as well as the entire PTO board, have been so committed to helping our families over the course of this past, unprecedented year of need, but also for many years prior.

    If you would like to learn more about our Robinson PTO Cares work, please join the last PTO meeting of the year in MAY. We will do a short presentation about our Robinson PTO Cares work. We hope to see many of you there!

    As always, our counseling team information is listed at the end of this message. Please reach out to any of us if we can be helpful to your child.

    Take care and have a great week,

    Julie
