What is REBO?
The Robious Explorers Booster Organization (REBO) is the parent
booster group organization that supports the Center Based Gifted (CBG) program at Robious Middle School. REBO does not duplicate the activities of the RMS PTA, but specifically works to strengthen the CBG experience through support of:
• The Curriculum by purchasing classroom materials and supplies, obtaining external resources, and volunteering onsite at RMS.
• The Students by gathering information about gifted education opportunities and coordinating CBG student events.
• The Families by providing centralized communications, announcements about programs available specifically to CBG students, and information on county activities and state policies affecting gifted education.
• The Instructors by underwriting professional development expenses.
REBO includes all Venturer (6th grade), Crusader (7th grade), and Regent (8th grade) families, and serves as the collective parent voice for the CBG program at Robious Middle School.
What do I need to do to join REBO?
As a Robious CBG parent, you are automatically a member of REBO (you do not need to do anything to join). Becoming actively involved in REBO is a great way for you to stay engaged in your child’s educational experience during the middle school years. GET INVOLVED!
Is REBO part of the RMS PTA?
No. While both REBO and the RMS PTA support the school, they are two separate entities. Most CBG parents are also members of the PTA at Robious, and many REBO parents also serve on the PTA board or as PTA volunteers. We encourage all CBG parents to support both the PTA and REBO.
How can I contribute?
REBO needs and appreciates all parent contributions of time, effort, and money. There is a voluntary fundraiser for REBO that begins in the fall, and donations are accepted throughout the year. All donations to REBO go directly to the CBG program at Robious. CLICK HERE to find out how to donate.
