Mrs. Austin and Ms. Hazleton work very hard to make this school a place of learning and growing for students. Like any school, some of the students face challenges from outside the school environment. Parents and Guardians need to step up and help improve attendance, discipline, and scholastic issues. Basically, parental involvement needs to improve. The administration and staff are always working to improve the learning environment, but they can not do it alone. If you have a child at Robinson, please get involved. Your children are young and in school once! Don't be shy about your students education...roll up your sleeves and help them succeed! Aren't your kids worth the extra effort? Of course they are!
