Support for our Ram Family Members

Kaitlynn and Doug Kraemer, two of our high school math teachers, are sharing their story here: regarding their family journey to support their beautiful daughter Dorothy, recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Their almost two year old has started treatment. Robinson is in the process of organizing a Go For the Gold fundraising event to support the Kraemers. We know that our Robinson family wants to show support.

Please use this link to access 3 ways to help:

Please send your thoughts and prayers to the entire family. We are grateful to our staff members who have stepped up to cover classes, organize meals and gift card collection, and expressed their love and support.

My Personal Project & Certificate

10th Grade Families,

Students interested in earning the MYP Certificate should be starting their Personal Project at this time. The project is independent, self-driven, and is not tied to any course at Robinson. The project should be challenging, yet realistic for completion within 25 hours, by March 2022.

MYP Certificate has three components: 10th grade students will complete the Personal Project, take language courses in grades 9 and 10, and complete six service reflections in order to apply for the certificate in the spring.

Learn more by watching the parent/student Information Night video:

Join the Schoology Course to get started now! Access Code: K8FM-7Z6J-8KBXR; once enrolled you’ll be able to get started on your Personal Project.

The personal project is independent this year, and students will have lessons and tasks to complete within Schoology. You’ll also have some in-person support and a faculty mentor.

Save the date! Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 3:00pm. Join Mrs. Scott in the library to work on goal setting. If students can’t make it, all lessons will be available to complete asynchronously. 

Questions? Contact Ms. Scott for Personal Project questions, or Ms. Campbell for Service Hours and Certificate questions,

Social Worker Spotlight - Focus on Gratitude


As we approach Thanksgiving weekend, it is a time for us to focus on gratitude. According to Amy Morin, LCSW, author of 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do “mentally strong people choose to exchange self-pity for gratitude. Whether you choose to write a few sentences in a gratitude journal or simply take a moment to silently acknowledge all that you have, giving thanks can transform your life.”

Here are her seven scientifically proven reasons why it is so important

1. Gratitude opens the door to more relationships. So, whether you thank a stranger for holding the door or send a thank-you note to that colleague who helped you with a project, acknowledging other people’s contributions can lead to new opportunities.
2. Gratitude improves physical health.
3. Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret.
4. Gratitude enhances empathy and reduces aggression. Grateful people are more likely to behave in a prosocial manner, even when others behave less kindly.
5. Grateful people sleep better. Spend just 15 minutes jotting down a few grateful sentiments before bed, and you may sleep better and longer.
6. Gratitude improves self-esteem. Rather than becoming resentful toward people who have more money or better jobs—a major factor in reduced self-esteem—grateful people are able to appreciate other people’s accomplishments.
7. Gratitude increases mental strength and reduces stress. It may also play a major role in overcoming trauma.

Happy Thanksgiving!
