Welcome to Mrs. Robb's Home Page

November 12, 2018

 
Dear Families,
 
Thanks to all the families that contributed to my class birthday gift of gift cards to Opa! restaurant and the Los Gatos Theater. In addition, I am so appreciative of all the individual birthday wishes, cards, and gifts I received. I was truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of affection.
 
I enjoyed meeting with you to discuss your child's progress during conference week; thank you for taking the time to participate. Please reach out to me at any time if you have questions or concerns!
 
Scholastic Book Orders were sent home last week. Please place your order by this Friday, November 16th.
 
Our first Study Trip of the year is Thursday, November 29th. We will travel to History Park in San Jose to learn about life in our valley 100 years ago. I have received some parental interest in driving/chaperoning this trip; I will be sending a confirmation email this week.
 
Our next ABC Reader lesson is this Wednesday. Please take the time to discuss lessons learned with your child.
 
I have introduced Typing Club to students. This free website is a useful tool for introducing proper keyboarding skills. A link can be found on my Google Classroom.
