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:
Thank you to everyone that made our first Meet and Greet a fantastic success. We had a great turn out to visit classrooms, teachers and see the campus the day before school started. The staff and I would like to welcome you to volunteer and participate in all of our programs throughout the year.
We are off to a fantastic start. The students are already settling into their classes. We have taken our first curriculum based measure to see what our students have retained over the summer. The staff was excited to see how well everyone did. We will be continuing to give out PAWS for students that make gains each month toward their reading and math goals. Look for more information about our PAWS program in the Robles handbook.
Set aside a special spot in your home for your child to do their homework. It might be a desk, a part of the kitchen table, or even just a designated spot on the floor that is comfortable. Encourage your child to spend 20 minutes a day reading and 10 minutes every day practicing math facts. This will increase your child’s success in school.
We will be sending home progress reports on September 3. Make sure to ask your child for it when they get home. A progress report will show you how your child is progressing in school before the grade becomes final. If you have any questions about the progress report, please contact your child’s teacher.
Your child’s teacher should have already sent home a ‘Parent Packet’ listing all of the concepts that will be taught this quarter. There should also have been a list of vocabulary words, definitions for those words, and sample test questions for each of the skills. This is the same type of information that will be on the Galileo test at the end of the quarter. The teachers and I hope this information is helpful when working with your child at home.
Thank you so much for your support.
Chandra Young, Principal
