Help for Students

As we are now a quarter of the way through the school year, hopefully students have been able to find a rhythm to their course load.  We know juggling school and outside activities can be a little tricky; therefore, we've created a Need Help? Flyer for your child and family.  The Need Help? Flyer (which looks great on a refrigerator by the way!) lists all of the helpful resources available through Robinson and the IB program.  In addition to all of the great information, you will see a new schedule for ELP available each day for FREE after school.
