Student Council Update

Hi! My name is Anna Maertz and I’m the Community Service Commissioner at Robinson. My job is to organize citywide community service projects and encourage taking care of our school and community. I love having this role on student council and helping our awesome neighborhood!!
One important event coming up is Tour de Pier. Tour de Pier is a community event to raise money for cancer research. It takes stationary cycling outdoors. So I encourage you to join a team and as a Robinson family, let's do our part to beat cancer. Every rider makes a difference. “Ride in place. Move charity forward.”
