Dear Robinson Community,
Welcome to November, the month of giving and gratitude!
Our year has started a bit bumpy with the passing of hurricanes Irma and Maria, yet I feel that these unfortunate catastrophes have definitely brought some good to the community and positive learning experiences for all. We have learned to be grateful for our lives, our friends and families, for what we have and do not have and for the solidarity, it has brought upon us.
Our students have returned happy and working harder than ever. They have undergone experiences that have taught them the true value of things and the importance of being resilient in trying times. They have taken their own experiences and searched for ways to make things better not only for themselves, but for future generations. From studying about the bees in the early grades to high school students researching the impact of the hurricanes on our island’s resources, economy and future our students have become great thinkers and problem solvers.
It is gratifying to see how our children, parents, staff, administration, alumni, and our surrounding neighborhood has united to help others. From collecting and distributing non – perishable items to building roofs and providing medical support, helping spread the word on social media and taking the time to volunteer on our campus to ensure our students had a safe haven….are testimony to the amazing community we have here at Robinson School!
Here at Robinson, we are all immensely grateful for everyone’s help and thanks is not enough. You are what makes this community great and what allowed us to open and resume classes as quickly as we were able to do so. Join me along with the entire staff in giving thanks for our health, the sense of community felt around us and, more importantly, for our wonderful children. They have been the light to us throughout these times of hardship…they are a daily reminder for all of us of what is important and why we are here.
Parents- thank you for keeping your faith in us and your understanding of the changes implemented in the schools’ schedule and calendar. Please know that they were done keeping the interest of your children at the foremost of all our decisions.
I wish you all a happy, safe, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving.
