  • Family Newsletter 5/22/22

    Hello everyone-

    YAY!!!!! What a week! We were able to successfully bring back Spring Sing and Field Day! We also celebrate 5th grade color wars, Heart to heart Tutoring, Kindergarten Popsicles on the Playground, and Mrs. Harris' retirement. Thank you to all of the parents who attended our events and thank you to all the parents who volunteered to help out! We couldn't do it without you! Special thanks to our specials team for putting fun events together.

    Monday we have our 5th grade celebration- woooowhooo! Thank you to our 5th grade parent committee for planning a fun day to celebrate our kiddos. On Tuesday, 5th grade goes to the zoo, and on Wednesday families are invited to join the building to clap out our 5th graders at noon. They will take one last lap around the building and we will cheer them out to middle school. This is such a fun group of kids and we are so proud of them!

    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.
