Welcome to the Internet home of Robles Elementary, part of the Altar Valley Elementary School District, where we strive for the best for both our students and staff. Located about 20 miles west of Tucson, Arizona, our school offers small-town charm with all the conveniences of a big city.
Dear Robles Families,
School is almost out, and it is time to think about all of the fun and exciting activities you can do as a family during the summer. As you and your child are planning activities don’t forget to continue reading and practicing math. Often students lose some of what they learn during the months they are out of school. This is typically called the ‘summer slide.’ To help your child have a fresh start for next year try reading for ten minutes each day. Just those few minutes each day can make a tremendous difference in your child's education. If you have extra time, ask your child a few questions about what they have read. Simple questions such as
It is also important to retain math skills. To help you child have them tell you the time on an analog clock, count the change in your hand, measure how tall they have grown, or identify which price is the best at the grocery store. All of those things build math skills.
I would like to invite you to the next academic parent teacher team (APPT) meeting. We will be discussing more ways you can help your child avoid the ‘summer slide.’
Please mark you calendars, and join us for the art show, pre-school and fourth grade promotion ceremonies, Bobcats of Excellence award ceremony, and of course our field day. Please contact Evelyn See if you would like to volunteer.
Thanks again for all of your support.
