Good evening, Farm Life Families. As many of you have heard, Mrs. Driessen has been asked to assume the role of Interim Principal at Robbins Elementary School starting tomorrow.  We will certainly miss her around here as she does so much for our students and staff. We have been blessed by her leadership for many years.  Robbins is lucky to have her!  With that being said, please join me in welcoming our new assistant principal, Mrs. Amber Preskitt.  She comes to us in her third year as an assistant principal.  Let’s make sure to give her a warm Trojan welcome! She begins tomorrow.  

Yearbooks are now available for purchase! Take advantage of our Early Bird Sale starting today until December 31st. During this period, grab your child's yearbook for only $15.00! Starting January 1st, the price will be $20.00. Act fast and secure your copy early. Yearbooks will be available for purchase online from now through April. 

I have an update on our plastic recycling program.  Ready for this…we have collected and saved the landfill 333 pounds of plastic so far!  That means we are a third of the way towards our goal of 1,000 pounds and a new bench!  Way to go, Trojans!

Important dates for the next two weeks include:

Nov. 21:  Last day to order keepsakes for the art fundraiser

Nov. 22:  Optional Teacher Workday-no school for students

Nov. 23-24:  Thanksgiving Holidays

Nov. 27:  Vass Lion’s Club Canned Food Drive begins through Dec. 15. Our goal this year is to collect 3,000 cans!  The K-2 class and the 3-5 class who collects the most cans will receive ice cream!

Dates for December can be found on the email version of this message or our school’s web page.  

I want to take just a moment to express my gratitude for the many ways you, our Trojan families, are committed to our school.  As you know, our teachers dedicate countless hours to providing quality education and fostering a positive learning environment.  Your encouragement and collaboration with them impacts their ability to inspire and guide our students. Your partnership in this endeavor is highly valued and appreciated.  Thank you!  From all of us at SFL, have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.  As always, Trojans Together…One Step at a Time!  Enjoy the Ride!
