Pumpkin Fest is just around the corner! This is a fun family event that is hosted by the Robert Crown School staff on 10/8 from 10am-2pm.
What a way to kick off our school year!! A special thank you to everyone that supported the Poppin’ Popcorn/No Hassle Fundraiser. We raised over $6650.00 for Robert Crown through our popcorn sale and No Hassle contributions! That money will be put to good use as we work on adding additional iPads for our students. Thank you again on behalf of the PTO board, we are truly appreciative. A special shout out to the Loomis Family, our highest seller. Great job to everyone who participated!!
After a whirlwind few months, it’s nice to see a light week on the ol’ PTO calendar isn’t it! This week we have Popcorn Sales during lunch periods on Friday. It’s also Spirit Wear Day that day, so make sure your little Bulldogs show off their purple and gold best!
Don’t forget, next week is a short week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. And after that?!?
Contact Laura Weintroub if you would like to help out for a couple hours during the always-popular RCS Holiday Shop!
The Robert Crown PTO would like to thank all of the RCS families who supported our fall book fair! We had a great turnout at Family Night last night and the kids just couldn’t seem to get enough of all the new books and old favorites!
Our entertainment for Family Night was spookily fun, wasn’t it! Who knew Beetlejuice lived so close to Wauconda?! In case you missed it, click on the photo above for a clip from last night’s shenanigans.
It’s time for the Fall Book Fair at Robert Crown! Classes have been scheduled to shop the book fair this week from Monday to Wednesday, but don’t forget about Family Night on Wednesday, November 11, when everyone is welcome to check out the selection!!
Burger King in Wauconda is hosting a Restaurant Benefit for the school, with proceeds of purchases going to Robert Crown. There will even be special guests behind the counter — Mrs. Diol and Mrs. Maki!!
Then, from 6:30-8 p.m., the Book Fair will be open to Robert Crown families. Light refreshments will be served in the cafeteria and we’ll have fun entertainment as well.
