A message from our Principal

Dear Families,

It is with great pleasure that I begin my second year as a principal here at Robles Elementary serving this wonderful community and your children. I want to thank you for all the support I received from all of you last year as a first year principal. This year I want to strengthen family engagement and emphasize the importance of our partnership. I truly believe that families are a major factor in student success, and we welcome continued communication with your child's teacher and the school. This connection is key to your child's current and future school success and achievements. I look forward to being a part of this partnership to benefit your child's success!

I am filled with excitement thinking of this next year and what comes with it. We are beginning our year with the implementation of our recently adopted reading curriculum. This will be our second year implementing Be Kind and our Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS). Robles is excited to announce that in September of this 2018-2019 school year, we will be installing our very own Be Kind mural. The mural will be located by the cafeteria entrance. We are expecting this mural to be a representation of who we are and we stand for, not only at Robles, but as a district and community. We are inviting all parents and community to attend the kindness conference with us on Saturday August 18, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Holaway Elementary School, 3500 N Cherry Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85719.
