Culture of Giving

We are excited to launch the 2018 Culture of Giving fundraiser. This annual campaign funds 1/3 of the PTO budget. This year’s campaign will run from September 10 through October 1. 

Through your generous donations and tireless volunteerism, our children enjoy activities that set us apart from other schools. Last year, the Roberts PTO supported the projects in the following areas. For a detailed list, please see the 2017-18 Year in Review

– IB Membership
– Curriculum Enrichment
– Professional Development
– Technology
– Health & Safety
– Building & Grounds

Please consider giving. If every family gives $1 per school day (a donation of $175), we will reach our goal. 100% of the money you donate goes directly into the school. Donations are tax deductible. Ask if your employer has a Corporate Matching Program to compound your contribution.

Get VIPS Cleared Now with HISD’s New RAPTOR Volunteer Management System!

The district policy is that volunteers and visitors must be VIPS(Volunteers in Public Schools) cleared to attend any school event other than lunch or parent conferences. The district is really pushing for compliance on all campuses. This means, you cannot attend an event in your child’s class (like a poetry reading) unless you are VIPS cleared. For instructions, click here.

Calling All Organized Parents!

In order to assist your child’s teacher and make the most of the school year, each classroom needs volunteers to fill several roles including:

Please check your child’s classroom volunteer roster to see what vacancies are remaining and consider signing up to be Room Parent or any other classroom volunteer position using the online sign-up sheet.


Contact Jeff Frey if you have any questions. He will be happy to tell you how easy and HELPFUL the roles are.
