Summer is fast approaching and now is the perfect time to be planning for summer activities. Robinson School, through in-class and co-curricular activities and initiatives, attempts to model for students what it means to be an engaged member of a community of active, life-long learners. The school year may end for our students, but summer presents our community with the chance to shift some focus towards the wealth of opportunities that allow our students to experience and apply their learning beyond the classroom. The following are just a few of the many available. Follow the links for additional information.
