About Us

Established: 1963
Location: 700 Lincoln Road South
Grades Served: K-6
History: Wake Robin Elementary was named for a cabin bearing this name, which was the home of Dr. Robert Fletcher Gilder, an archeologist who located many Native American artifacts dated from 950 to 1450 AD in the Fontenelle Forest. His work was important in identifying an early society, which is now called the Nebraska Culture or the Nebraska Phase People. Dr. Gilder was also an artist, whose work is on permanent display at the Joslyn Art Museum. In 1963 after a successful bond issue, the Bellevue Public Schools planned to build four new elementary schools. The school nearest to the Wake Robin Cabin and closest to Dr. Gilder’s friends in Avery and on Bellevue Boulevard was named Wake Robin Elementary School, and today Wake Robin Elementary School honors flowers, birds, nature, and Dr. Gilder.
