We would love to hear about your experiences at Robeson, please let us know by completing 2022 Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey Link to survey: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/ Opens Jan. 11, 2022 and closes March 11, 2022. The parent response rate is 14% for the 2022 Illinois Parent Survey. Schools need 20% of their parents to respond in order to receive a report.

 

We will soon meet to organize class lists for 22-23. Balanced classrooms are composed of diversity in gender, socio-economic status, academic achievement, as well as personalities. Our school team will use information about your student as well as others to support everyone at Robeson. I invite you to provide me with input about your child’s placement as we prepare class assignments for the upcoming school year. In doing so, please observe the following procedure: 

Parent input for a specific learning environment (not for a specific teacher) is submitted in writing to the principal no later than March 25th, 2022.  

-Please send a separate email for each child. 

-The email should describe the environment in which your student will be successful and why.

-Please compose an email addressed to [email protected].org, subject line “Student Environment Request”, followed by your student’s name.

-Requests for specific teachers should not be submitted, nor will they be granted.
