Good Evening Robert Little Families!

The month of October is in full swing!  This month our Character Theme is Thankfulness and kicked it off with an amazing assembly.  We have invited all our students (and you our families!) to fill out a leaf of thankfulness for our tree.  


Supervision Hours

This week we noticed that 20-30 students are arriving before 9:00 AM, without supervision.  A reminder that supervision on the blacktop begins at 9:00 and there is no adult supervision before that time.

From all of us at Robert Little we wish all our Families and the Acton Community a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with Family and Friends!  

In Partnership,

Colleen Golightly

Trevor Dykstra

and the Staff of Robert Little

Be Kind, Do your Best, Make a Difference!



Our Me to We club is kicking off our We Scare Hunger food drive! From now until October 26th, please send any non-perishable food items to school with your child to help support our local fundraising initiative. Some popular items include (but not limited to): soup, pasta sauce, juice, flavoured rice, pasta, Mr. Noodle, jam, tuna and pancake mix.

Thank you so much for your support!
