Robbins Lane PTA Holds Annual Carnival

The 2017 Robbins Lane Luau Carnival provided traditional carnival games such as "Can Smash" and "Hoop Shot," and new favorites like "Tic-tac-toe Basketball," for children of all ages to enjoy. Popcorn, cotton candy, and hot dogs were the snacks of the day as children took pictures at the luau-themed photo booth, had their face painted, made a fish craft and participated in other fun activities available. There were many raffles, including Disney World Park Hoppers, Mets tickets, and autographed baseballs and posters. Kids had tons of fun, enjoying relief from the cold and a day in the sun.

Robbins Lane Students Read for PARP

This March, Robbins Lane Elementary School participated in the PARP (Pick A Reading Partner) program. The two-week long PTA-sponsored program encourages students to read at home with family members to develop a culture of reading outside the classroom. This year’s theme at Robbins Lane was “Under the Sea.” Parents and teachers were reminded to encourage their readers to get involved in reading and participating in fun reading-related activities.

PARP kicked off with award winning author, educator and storyteller Jason Edwards who engaged the students during schoolwide assembly with a collaborative story-telling experience. The Robbins Lane Book and Author committee also sponsored a day of captivating assemblies presented author Lisa Funari-Willever.  Two lucky readers per grade were chosen to have lunch with the author where they asked her questions about her work and her experience as a writer. The entire school brought home an grade-appropriate autographed book from Ms. Funari-Willever.

The class and top three students from each grade who logged the most minutes read received awards.  As a school, Robbins Lane read an amazing 86,733 minutes over the two-week period! Although PARP has ended, the thirst for reading still continues in our young readers.

Parents at Robbins Lane Elementary School had an opportunity to participate in several free instructional workshops to learn about Google Docs, a web-based application used by students to create, edit and store documents and spreadsheets online. Led by teacher Melanie Spiegel, technology specialist Colleen Vereline and Principal Thea Pallos, parents learned to create a Google account and document, navigate through the Google menu bar and practice using some of the special features that differentiate Google Docs from other word processing apps.       

Robbins Lane students also participated in the lessons, presenting on how they use the system.                                   

 “Students are using more and more technology, so it’s important that parents know what’s taking place in the classroom,” said Spiegel. “It keeps the lines of communication open.”
