  • Family Newsletter 1/16/22

    Hello everyone-

    I sent a Robinson Health Update email yesterday morning. I did not want the information to be missed or overlooked in the newsletter. One addition I should have included regarding absence reporting- you may continue to use the RobinsonAttendance@kirkwoodschools.org link to report any absence for your child illness related or not. If it is illness related, Mr. Shelton, our attendance secretary, will forward it to our nurse on duty. You do not have to email him directly at patrick.shelton@kirkwoodschools.org although you can either method is sufficient and you do not need to do both. Any Covid or health related questions or concerns should be emailed to me at angeline.onealhogrefe@kirkwoodschools.org and I will forward the message tot he nurse on duty. To complete the reporting a positive student Covid case use this form- Report a Positive Case

    Thank you all for your attention regarding this change in process.

    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-

    Angeline

  • Connecting with the Counselors

    January 9, 2022

    Good Evening,

    We hope you had a wonderful holiday break and are enjoying this VERY cold week of 2022!

    We have had a busy 3 days back at Robinson. We love seeing all of your student's back at Robinson and ready to learn in 2022. Next week we will begin a new schedule which will enable us to teach counseling lessons to all Robinson classrooms in 2 days. Many times we get pulled away from our scheduled day to help with a student in crisis or with mediation or restorative work when things happen amongst students during the day. When that happens, we miss classroom lessons. This "protected time" being provided each month is very exciting for our team. We hope you hear about your student's time with the counselors at home next week!

    Our lessons will start with revisiting what it looks like and sounds like to be at school each day-- much like our "reboot" in November. See the picture below of our Robinson School Expectations. All students will have time to reflect on how they feel they are doing and celebrate where they have grown, as well as notice any areas which they can improve.

    We will also continue to talk about our "ONE WORD" that we chose for this school year. Our counseling team chose BELONG. When we think about our school, we want ALL students to feel as if they belong and are safe here each day. If we don't feel safe, we can't learn.

    Our staff Equity Committee (REC) is working to incorporate what we are already doing to align with a No Place 4 Hate (NP4H) program. One of the most exciting parts of becoming a NP4H school is that our kids will help lead us in this work. All 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders will be offered an opportunity to join the leadership committee of NP4H. The commitment is a two year one, so our current 5th graders are, unfortunately, not eligible to be on the committee. More information about the NP4H committee will be coming home in backpack mail next week for 2nd-5th graders.

    Wednesday night we will continue our student book study meeting (on zoom) with students in 3rd-5th grades. As you may recall, we are reading Stamped (For Kids), by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi. The kids attending have shown such incredible insight and maturity. Thank you to the parent-led Robinson Equity Group (REG) for putting this opportunity together and including us. We look forward to reading with other students and if you are interested in having your student be a part of a future book study group, please reach out to one of us.

    REMINDER: Our Connecting with the Counselors is now a monthly update. If there is important information to share, Dr. OH has agreed to include it in her weekly family newsletter.

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

    Have a fantastic week and look for our February update around the 6th!
