  • The Yakima School District is proud to announce the hiring of TJ Bell-Davis as the 2020-2021 principal of Robertson Elementary School.  TJ will replace principal Mark Hummel, who is retiring.

     TJ Bell-Davis

    My name is TJ Bell-Davis and I am honored to serve as Robertson Elementary School’s next principal.

    I began my career in education more than 20 years ago when I was a college student at California State University-Bakersfield. Since then I have been an English Language Arts teacher in elementary, middle and high school.

    I have been the Center Director of two tutoring centers and a Facility Director for three programs serving military children from birth to 18 years old. I also spent two years as an Assistant Principal in Tacoma Public Schools and one year as an Interim Principal in Federal Way Public Schools. My husband is a retired Army veteran and we have been in Washington with our three children for four years.

    I have two bachelor’s degrees; one is in Communications and the other is in English. I also have a Master’s degree in Educational Administration and two years of doctoral coursework from the University of Phoenix. In 2018, I began my Leadership for Learning Ed.D. at the University of Washington-Seattle. As you can see, I have been attending school most of my life and I absolutely love to learn! 

    I am passionate about researching current trends and designing new strategies to improve the American education system. I chose to pursue my doctorate at the University of Washington because I want to fine-tune my craft as a champion for educational equity and build a community of educators who want to influence positive change. I want to be the type of doctor to help turn around schools so that children can succeed and excel. I imagine parents, teachers, school administrators, and educational researchers all coming together to improve schools as a team!

    I believe in learning and leading with a culturally responsive lens. I am an adaptive leader that enjoys working with diverse groups of people and loves to learn right alongside the students! My core beliefs are in alignment with promoting equity in education and reimagining schools. I have high expectations and standards for ALL staff and EVERY student.

    When I was a little girl, I wanted to be everything! I wanted to be an athlete, talk-show host and author. Once I started college, I gained an interest in learning about other cultures through food, music, and fashion. I have always been inspired by learning from other people. I want to share this love with the entire Robertson community! 

    I am excited to become a “Rocket” and join a school with a rich history and pride! 

    TJ

  • EBT Funds Available to All YSD Students

    Posted by YSD Food Services on 7/6/2020

    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children are eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for some of the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Because all YSD students receive free breakfast and lunch, all YSD students are eligible regardless of income. If you do not already receive benefits, you will need to apply on or after June 30.  If you receive food assistance benefits already, the money will appear on your EBT on June 30.

    Update 7/6/20: We have been in contact with OSPI last week and they said that DSHS had the incorrect student list for Yakima School District which is why they turned down some parents; they are updating with the correct list which will show any student enrolled in Yakima School District that was grade K-12 in the school year 2019-2020 as eligible for PEBT.

    If you were denied, go to WashingtonConnections.org and apply again and see if their list has been updated. You can inform them Yakima is a CEP district.

  • Robertson Rockets are Rock Stars!

    Posted by YSD Stories Account on 11/19/2018

    Robertson Elementary recently hosted our annual Special Person Lunch.  This is an event to celebrate Thanksgiving and give families an opportunity to join their student for a meal at school.  We have so many families that look forward to sharing this special meal.  This year, just under 800 people enjoyed this event. Some Robertson staff put together a slide show for our families to view while they ate.  Photos in the slides include students reading “On the Edge” while completing their WIG (Wildly Important Goal), staff and students having fun together and our Leader in Me community outreach projects.  We at Robertson are doing great things.  Go Rockets! Take a peak at the Slide Show of Our Rock Stars! Once you've clicked this link click on "Learn More"

     

    We are thankful

    So many special people
