Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

How do I register my student? All middle school students are invited to participate, but parents must complete the online registration form, granting permission for their student(s) to participate in any after school activities on campus at Robinson from 3:00 to 5:00pm. Once submitted, students are invited to stay for any after school program for the 2021-2022 school year, including SGA sponsored special events!

Programs sponsored by a community partner will require additional parental authorization. 

On what days and times are clubs offered?

Most clubs and activities meet from 3:00 - 4:30pm on our late bus days - Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. A few activities meet on Tuesdays and Fridays with parent pick-up required at sponsor determined times. No activities are offered on students holidays or early release days.

Who sponsors the clubs?  Robinson teachers, counselors, and coaches sponsor activities for the benefit of our students. Additionally, adults from various business partnerships deliver and support some of our after school programs, such as the Voices of Now program offered by Arena Stage in Washington, DC. 

How do students know what clubs are offered? Students should access the RMS Club Description spreadsheet posted on Schoology to view options and join clubs of interest. Program details and announcements will also be posted in the Schoology grade level and club specific groups and in the Ram Blast News You Choose bulletin emailed weekly to parents. 

How do students know when clubs are offered?

Students can use the Club-By-Day Quarter Schedule to view clubs offered by day to help plan their time. Meeting locations are posted here as well as on the activity calendar in Schoology and locker bay TVs.

How do students join clubs?

Due to space limitations, a daily club and activity sign-up form will be posted on Schoology at 9:30am on late bus days, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Activities requiring attendance each week due to program design, will utilize a separate registration form (posted on Schoology) and students will not need to use the daily sign-up form.  Specific instructions will be provided by late September to students via a video posted on Schoology. 

May students suggest club ideas?

Yes! Student ideas are welcome and those interested should complete the Club Proposal form which will be posted by mid-October for consideration beginning in the 2nd quarter.
