Box Tops News

 

Congratulations to Mrs. Gobeille’s class for winning the Box Top Trophy for the third time this school year! 

 

Robinson students, please remember to bring in your box tops to see who will win the Box Top trophy for the month of May/June!  Because next month is the last month of school, we will extend the May collection period until June 12th.  Also check the MESA blast next month to see which classroom will win the Robinson end of year contest for the most box tops overall this school year. 

 

J/J students we need your box tops too.  Please remember to drop your box tops off at the collection boxes at the entrances to the J/J.  All box tops collected at the J/J and Robinson directly benefit both of our schools!  Thank your for your support of the program.

 

Very truly yours,

Yvette Politis Cromack, Mary Dalton, Kate Allen and Antonia Blinn 

 



New England Aquarium Visit
 

The New England Aquarium visited the 3rd graders last week (4 more classes will get a visit this week). A lesson on tide pool habitats, the animals and plants that live there and the adaptations that the animals must make was presented.  Then the students explored the four types of habitats found along our coast with hands on exhibits.  Bins with live animals and icy cold water were set up for students to put their scientist skills to use. This event was sponsored by MESA.




Robinson Field Day Volunteers
