The PTA partners with School Kidz to offer School Supply Kits! These are all individually tailored to the teachers’ school supply lists at Robeson and offer parents and guardians an easy way to buy school supplies without running around to stores this summer.
Go to http://www.shopttkits.com/ and enter our school code 6535. Kits are delivered straight to your child’s classroom, so no need to worry about shipping, pick-up, or delivering the supplies.
These orders are due by June 10th – no late orders will be accepted! Be sure to order for NEXT year’s grade, as there are no refunds!
April 30 – May 6th is Screen-Free Week, a nationwide event celebrated by schools, families, and other community groups each year. Studies show that children who watch less TV are more likely to read well and to be physically fit. Turning off screens also allows for more family time.
The Robeson PTA is supporting this initiative by:
Participating is simple; help your children find activities that do not depend on a tablet, computer, or television! Also, please join us during some of the activities we have planned for our school community.
Then help your child record their successes on the tracker below and return it after May 6th to your teacher (teachers: please place these in the PTA box). The PTA will hold the drawing on May 10th and award prizes to students who were successful at being screen-free. No need to be perfect – send in your tracker with all levels of success! School-related activities do not count.
Here is what we have planned:
Mon, April 30, 2:30-3:30pm: Ice cream in Robeson Park! The PTA will hand out small ice cream treats in Robeson Park (just West of the school). Stay and play with your school mates! It’s supposed to be sunny!
Tues, May 1, 4-6pm: Putt-putt at Old Orchard Mini-Golf. Mention Robeson Elementary for group discount of $3.50 per game (regular $6). PTA will hand out a small favor afterward.
Wed, May 2, 3pm-7pm: Enroll for next year! Robeson enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year will take place from 3-7pm, with kindergarten screening from 6-7pm. Stop by the PTA table to sign-up for the digital directory; you can even pay 2018-2019 dues electronically!
Thurs, May 3, 5:30-7:30pm: Fishing Derby at Colbert Park in Savoy. No experience or equipment required (but do bring your own rod & reel if you have them). Parent/guardian supervision required.
