Dear Ruth Brown Families,

Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I am Cintia Robinson, your new principal at Ruth Brown Elementary.  For the past 2 years I have been working as the Dean of Students and I am now honored to take on a new role. I am very excited to be here and look forward to an amazing year.

School will start on Wednesday, August 16 at 8:20 a.m. and classes will be posted outside the cafeteria doors on Monday, August 14th at 5 p.m. Our school day begins at 8:20 a.m. and concludes at 3:10 p.m. Wednesday is an early release day and school concludes at 12:05 p.m. We are fortunate to continue to serve free breakfast for all students. The cafeteria begins serving breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Please do not drop off prior to this time, there is no supervision for students until 7:30 a.m.  

In preparing for the new school year, we have created a suggested supply list and we have updated our Parent/Student handbook, both of which can be found on our Ruth Brown website and Ruth Brown Bears Facebook page. The supply list can also be picked up at the Ruth Brown office. The Parent/Student handbooks will be passed out at “Back to School Night” which is August 30th at 6 p.m. I hope you can join us.  

I will be having an informational meeting on Wednesday, August 9th at 5 p.m. in Spanish and 5:30 p.m. in English at the Ruth Brown cafeteria. I would like to introduce myself and discuss some of the changes here at Ruth Brown.  

I hope you enjoy the remaining of summer and I look forward to seeing your children on Wednesday, August 16th.


Cintia I. Robinson – Principal
