Kick It for Cancer!

This football season, Jacob will be raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Pediatric Cancer Research . You can pledge money for every point he scores during the season. Jacob is raising money this year because no child should have to go through the hardships of fighting cancer. Every dollar donated will help benefit cancer research. His goal is to raise $5000 for the foundation. Every dollar pledged will help these children. Thank you to everyone for joining the fight against cancer!

Robinson Marketplace, Auction, and Raffle!

During Marketplace, we hold a silent auction and raffle featuring items which have been generously donated by local and national businesses. Last year’s silent auction featured a variety of items, from tickets to Walt Disney World to a baseball autographed by the National’s Gio Gonzalez. This year, we anticipate a wide range of items, as well.

In the past, we have been able to raise approximately $10,000 per year from this event to support a wide variety of school and community programs, including academic programs, health and safety events, school publications, support for faculty development and morale, school technology advancement, and financial support for student clubs and groups.

Thank you for your generous support!
