RAMping Up! Transition Program

Update July 23, 2021: All sessions except August 6 are now full. If you would like to attend August 6, you can register on the Google form below and and email rampingup@robinsonptso.org for information on submitting payment.


If you are a rising 7th grader moving to Robinson from another school or out of the area, please contact the FCPS registrar at Robinson before signing up for RAMping Up. 


If you are a rising 8th grader moving to Robinson from another school or out of the area, these students will have a separate orientation offered by the counselors and should NOT sign up for RAMping Up (the school will send more information once you are registered and plans are finalized. We do not have additional information on this other event). RAMping Up is only for all rising 7th graders or rising 8th graders who attended Robinson 100% virtually in 2020-2021.


Full program information:


Registration is now open. Rising 7th grade students and eligible rising 8th grade students should have received an email with information about how to register, or see the information below.


If you will be NEW TO FCPS, you must have a registration appointment to enroll your student with FCPS in order to register for RAMping Up. Please call Melanie Knowlton, DSS Registrar, at 703-426-2222 to schedule an appointment.


There are two parts to registration: the Google registration form and then the payment process through Membership Toolkit. You are not fully registered until you complete both parts (unless you are requesting a scholarship). You will receive an email with your responses from the Google registration form, and an email receipt for payment. This is your confirmation. Do not sign up for a session which is full, instead sign up for  the waitlist option. You may sign up for a different session that is available and also the waitlist session for the one that is full.


RAMping Up! is a supplemental transition program for rising 7th grade students who would like additional support with the transition to middle school, sponsored by the Robinson PTSO in collaboration with Robinson staff. This year we will also offer the program for rising 8th grade students who attended school 100% virtually during 2020-2021 or who are new to FCPS.
