PARCC states have partnered with GreatSchools to launch the Great Kids Test Guide for Parents, a new resource to assist parents in helping their children prepare academically for the next grade level and for college and careers.

The guide, which can be found at, was developed as a road map for parents. It gives them information about what their child needs to know at each grade level and how they can help their children succeed academically, based on how they performed on the PARCC assessment. It also explains what knowledge and skills are needed for each area of the test and which parts are especially tough for kids, while offering easy ways to boost a child's skills at home.

Kindness Certified School
Students and staff from Robert Gordon will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge during the month of February. Each student and staff member will decorate a hand print, showing how he/she can show kindness. These handprints will be added to the Great Kindness Challenge, whose goal is to beat the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Most Kind-Hearted Handprints.” Robert Gordon students and staff will also be involved in many other activities focused around kindness this month. We are so proud of our students for displaying their kind-hearted spirits towards their peers, teachers, and others in the community.

Please make every effort to get your children to school on time.  All children should be here no later than 8:20 a.m. Every child should line up with their class and enter the building together.  Our day begins at 8:20.  Your son or daughter should not be running into school at 8:30.  This is not fair to your child, their teacher or the students in the class.  I thank you for your cooperation in getting your sons and daughters here before the 8:20 bell.


 The Teddy Bear is the official mascot of Robert Gordon School.  In 1909 when Robert Gordon School was built, Theodore Roosevelt was president of the United States of America.  His nickname was Teddy.  Legend has it that he once saved a bear cub.  A stuffed, toy bear was named after him.
