holiday shop is coming soon

The Robert Crown Holiday Shop will begin Monday, December 12th and run through Thursday, December 15th.  This is an opportunity for your student to purchase relatively inexpensive gifts (up to $6) for family members (and pets too!).  All gifts will be wrapped to ensure that holiday surprise!  Volunteers are needed and will help with set-up, assisting students in choosing gifts within their budget, working registers, wrapping gifts, and clean-up.  Please contact Laura Weintroub if you are interested in volunteering.  We also welcome your support in donations of gift bags and tissue paper. Thank you!


Book Fair-It’s a GRAND Event!

pirateAhoy!  This week students have the opportunity to visit Robert Crown’s  Pirate Themed Book Fair during the school day and become a “Bookaneer” where “books are the treasure!”  We are also holding a “Grand Event” on Wednesday, November 9th from 6:30-8,  where students are welcome to bring someone “Grand” in their lives (a grandparent, parent, aunt, or uncle) to do some shopping, look for some treasures on a school treasure hunt, and enjoy Dippin’ Dots (additional charge).  Come if ye dare!

Before you come to the Grand Event, grab some grub at Burger King. Mrs. Diol and a surprise guest will be taking orders from 5:00-6:30pm.  Bring your coupon from school and Burger King will donate 20% of your purchase (designated meals) to Robert Crown’s PTO!
