Welcome back! Thank you to all the parents who donated supplies. These items are a necessity in the classroom and a tremendous help. Thank you very much for your support. We’re looking forward to a great year at The Robin’s Nest!

Chapel: Chapel starts September 8th, all are invited to attend. Chapel will be held on Mondays at 9:05 or Tuesdays at 9:05. If you’re running late on chapel day, please bring your child directly to the sanctuary.

Snacks: Snack time at The Robin’s Nest is a special time for your child. We hope you will help make this a parent/child project by including your child in the selection of the snack. We serve 100% apple juice as the beverage.  Snacks must be healthy and low in sugar (no artificial sweeteners). Please save sugary snacks for birthday celebrations only. Also, remember, The Robin’s Nest is a PEANUT FREE school.  Please read the snack notice carefully when it is your child’s turn to be snack helper. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask your child’s teacher or Pat in the office.

Our Staff: The Robin’s Nest is blessed to have a teaching staff that is dedicated, highly trained, and committed to the education of children in a Christian environment. Our teachers and staff are the very best and we are proud to introduce them to you.

Believe Fall Fundraiser: The Parent Advocate Club (PAC) Believe fundraiser will begin on Tuesday, September 15th , and run through Monday, September 28th.  Fundraiser packets will be sent home with your child. This is a great time to complete some of your Christmas shopping and at the same time help out the children and the school. We appreciate the support you give The Robin’s Nest.

 Community Partnership Program-Adopt a Class: Join The Robin’s Nest’s 2015-2016 Community Partnership Program. By adopting a class or the school and making a tax-deductible donation of $150, a local business or individual will receive valuable exposure with students, their families, and church members. The teachers use your donations to purchase classroom materials such as furniture, manipulatives, books, CD’s, and computer equipment. If you are interested in adopting a class or would like more information please stop by the office for a brochure. We greatly appreciate all the wonderful individuals and businesses who generously adopted classes last year.

Parent Advocate Club: PAC is a great way to support your child by participating in events and on subcommittees that enrich all of our lives. PAC sponsors a variety of special events for the children and their families, including Breakfast with Santa, Santa Shop, Book Fair, and more. The PAC also sponsors two major fundraisers during the school year.

Two PAC meetings are scheduled each month so you can choose which day to attend. We try to keep all meetings to no longer than 1 hour in length. Children are welcome to attend with  you! All parents are invited to attend one of the first PAC meetings on September 10th room 212 or 11th at 9:15 a.m. room 201.

Individual Pictures: Picture Perfect Images is our school photographer. School pictures will be taken September 15th, 16th, and 17th.
