Converse Elementary and UW-Whitewater Education Major
Our 2nd grade students finally meet their pen pal - they have been exchanging letters for months with UW-Whitewater education majors. It was such a fun opportunity to see our students reading, creating, and having fun with their pen pal. Thank you University of Wisconsin-Whitewater for continuing with this awesome program!
Cougars and Cubs Club
Robinson's ”Cougars and Cubs” after-school club focuses on building leadership and literacy skills. In December, 2nd and 3rd grade Cougar Leaders were able to start reading with their 4k-1st grade Cubs! We love to see our students working on their reading skills and building relationships. Thank you to Counselor, Kayla Allen and Social Worker, Harmony Shepherd for running this club.

Shout-out to the top advisories in each grade level: 4th Grade - Bolan; 5th Grade - Frain; 6th Grade - Hearns; 7th Grade - Bares (highest total in building!); and 8th Grade - Gonzales.

Shop with a Hero
More than100 School District of Beloit students were paired with first responders or military personnel to shop for the holidays during the annual "Shop with a Hero" event. Families then attended a pancake breakfast at Fruzen. We received a $2,000 community grant from Walmart that helps to underwrite this awesome event. We thank Walmart and the many elves from our District and community who make this happen each year. They work hard to create an enjoyable day for our families filled with wonderful memories.
Collaborated with community partners to form stronger collaborative partnerships between our school district and community agencies
