Caterpillar News


The Robinson students did an AMAZING job with the Reading Caterpillar!  In just two weeks our students read (or were read to) for a total 79,895 minutes! As you may remember this was a contest to see which class per grade read the most. The class with the most minutes read in each grade will receive a butterfly habitat, a special story-time with one of the principals and their picture in the paper.

The winning classes are:
Kindergarten- Miss Garabedian (morning  class) with 2,520 minutes read.
First grade- Mrs O'Neil with 3,265 minutes read.
Second grade- Mrs. Gobeille with 5,170 minutes read.
