Robinson High School Foundation
Happy 2015 RHS Families,
It is hard to believe 2015 is here. The Robinson High School Foundation is busy at work with technology upgrades thanks to proceeds from the 2013 Benefit, RHS Class of 1984, RIBLI and you.
Working with Don Roberts - Foundation Technology Chair, Jack Miles – School Technology and Johnny Bush - Principal, we will be outfitting 10 additional classrooms with projectors and tablets which allow teachers to work with online information in the classroom as well as create a more interactive classroom environment. The feedback from teachers regarding the opportunity to bring this technology to RHS has been extraordinary. A special thanks to RHS Class of 1984, who raised enough to sponsor one classroom, and RIBLI for sponsoring two classrooms. The remaining seven rooms are made possible by all of you who support the Robinson Foundation. The technology is expected to be fully installed in all the classrooms over the next 2-3 months.
Also thanks to all the families and businesses that became Foundation Partners this school year. This partnership program was new for the 2014/2015 school year. We will be continuing the Community and Family Partnership programs next year with information about renewing or joining coming out this spring.
Along with the Partners Program, the annual benefit is instrumental to the Foundation’s funding efforts. We are ready to begin the planning for next year’s event and have the exciting opportunity available for someone to lead this event as Benefit Chair and/or Auction Chair. If you are interested in taking a leadership role or participating on the planning committee, please contact me at (813) 495-6694.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and prosperous 2015, we welcome your support and involvement.

Providing financial and volunteer support for the Robinson High School community and campus
