Virgie Robinson Elementary School opened in 2005 and is named after Virgie Robinson, a beloved educator and community civil rights activist who worked for the District for many years. Virgie Robinson’s family is still very much connected to education in the District and visits the school regularly. The Robinson family donates a $500 scholarship every year to a deserving senior in the District.
Robinson Elementary has a very active Associated Student Body (ASB). Every year, the ASB leads students in collecting food for Second Harvest Food Bank and raising money for organizations such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Robinson is also the proud home of the ‘K’ Kids, who through their affiliation with the school’s longtime PEAK! partner Kiwanis Club of the Horse Heaven Hills, engage in service learning activities, such as writing cards and creating valentines for troops stationed overseas, and writing get well messages to cancer patients.
Robinson’s first principal was George Mendoza followed by Megan Nelson. Previous assistant principals include Carol King, Dora Noble, Letty Morrisette, Claudia Serrano and Josette Mendoza.
Virgie Robinson's Mission Statement: “Preparing, challenging and empowering all students to achieve their greatest potential”.
