Let the reindeer games begin as the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) Winter Festival is coming up this Saturday, Dec. 2 from 2 p.m.- 6p.m. This winter festival will include entertainment, food, crafts, games and vendors. This event is for all ages and families all around the community to enjoy as it begins to cool down.

Countless hours of labor and planned were devoted to ensure that this event was possible. The goal of it is bring joy to the Robinson community.

“The goal is to promote our school. Our community is also the reason we decided to do this fun community event,” PTSA said PTSA Treasurer Karrie Hargot. “The PTSA has been planning this for several months and it is definitely a labor of love- our love for Robinson.”

PTSA Student President Anthony Zheng (’24) agrees with Hargot and expressed just how fun it’ll be with a list of activities that will be available.

“I highly encourage people to attend because there’ll be a variety of vendors selling all sorts of goods and booths with activities that will be lots of fun. I’m sure that anyone who attends will enjoy themselves,” Zheng said. “There’ll be yard games, a gaming tower to match up against friends, a VR game station, foam area, local vendors and food.”

Admission fees are either a donation of non-perishable food or cash for Metropolitan Ministries, a nonprofit organization that provides care for at risk homeless families in the Tampa Bay area. Tickets can be purchased in either in advanced or at the gate; in advance they’re $15 for 25 tickets and at the gate is $20 for 25 tickets. Tickets will be used for all the games.

“[I anticipate] this event to be a market that one can enter and immediately feel welcome and [enjoy] the atmosphere of the Knights community spirit, having fun and playing games, eating food and indulging in treats,” Zheng said.

About the Contributor
Yesenia Rosario, News & Features Editor
Yesenia Rosario is a junior at Robinson and the News & Features Editor of  Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff and her first year as an editor.  Rosario has a deep fondness for the community that journalism has built for her, leading her to return to the staff for a second year.  "What brings me back is the community and the work, it’s very great. It’s very easy but fun at the same time," Rosario said.  Although busy with her academics, Rosario manages to find time for hobbies; she especially enjoys baking and being with friends. Rosario also appreciates a wide variety of media, particularly the essence of Jordan Peele's movies. Currently, “Coraline” is ranked as one of her favorite movies due to its more dark and irreverent tone.  “It's not that I don't lean over any other genres of movies, it's just that I think that thrillers and creepy movies have you on the edge of your seat more, they could be more interesting," Rosario said. "More can be done with a lesser timeframe, rather than like two-hour movies, and though they're good, they're pretty lengthy, so I think that horror and thriller movies have so much content in a short amount of time." Being a movie and music enthusiast, her favorite section to write is A&E. She often finds herself gravitating towards sections that allow her to editorialize.  “I prefer writing album reviews over any other, because it's something I enjoy writing about and giving my opinion on and it gives me a reason to listen to music for fun, rather than having to write lengthy feature stories or any informative story that aren't as fun to write," Rosario said.  Rosario hopes that her love for writing will continue to play a role in her future, even after high school. “One of the reasons I like journalism is that you’re able to choose and write about what you’d like and I think that’s pretty cool," Rosario said.  Profile by (Jordan De La Cruz)
