We hope you had a wonderful and joyous holiday season. Welcome back!
We hope you enjoyed your holidays! It’s wonderful to see all the children back in school. We thank all of you who have volunteered at The Robin’s Nest and especially during the busy holiday season. Parent participation is very important to the school and the children love it!
We all have enjoyed a very busy and exciting holiday season at The Robin’s Nest. On December 9th and 10th we hosted two very special Christmas Chapels for Robin’s Nest children and their families. December 9th through the 13th our annual Santa Shop was opened serving over 400 shoppers! December 14th was a festive morning featuring Breakfast with Santa for children and their families. On the evening of December 17th more than 500 people attended the annual Christmas program presented by Jenny Knott and The Robin’s Nest children. The program was priceless! Topping off the holiday season were the class Christmas parties, visits with Santa and a Christmas story time. What an eventful time of year!
A big thank you to Sarah Thompson, LeighAnne Sarantopoulos, Lisa Dion, Heather Dominie, Mary Knellinger, Christy McDaniel, Christine Lane and all of our volunteers for their help with shopping, organizing, wrapping, and staffing the Santa Shop. The Santa Shop would not be the success it is without you!
BOOK FAIRY PROJECT
What an AWESOME Spring Mission! Robin’s Nest is joining forces with the GFWC North Pinellas Woman’s Club Book Fairy to collect new and gently used books for adults and children in need. These books are then distributed to health clinics, camps, family centers, classrooms, Habitat for Humanity house warmings, after-school programs, foster care agencies and even parades! This project has been recognized by the GFWC Florida Federation of Women’s Club as an outstanding community improvement program.
Please drop off your new and gently used books in the Robin’s Nest Office!

Our school takes the health of our students very seriously and takes many precautions to control the spread of illnesses and to protect the health of your child. There are additional measures you can take at home to protect your child’s health as well, including:
- follow the basic prevention measures of hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette and regular cleaning of high touch surfaces
- monitor your child for signs and symptoms of illness
- keep your child home from school and other activities when ill
- keep children home until they no longer have symptoms of illness and are feeling well and able to fully participate in daily programs – children must be free of fever and vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school
- seek medical attention if your child becomes ill, especially if they are at increased risk for complications from illness
