Message from RPA President
Join Us At The Next RPA Meeting -- September 4th

What a great turnout at the back to school barbecue!  I hope that you had a good time and got to meet some new parents and children.  
 
Our next event is the Raskob Parents' Association (RPA) meeting on Wednesday, September 4, from 8:30 to 10:00 in the California Room (down the hall from the location of the welcome tea).  If you don't know where the California Room is, just wait in the Raskob lobby and walk over with Jessica and some of the Officers.  
 
We plan to:
- review last year's budget, 
- discuss priorities for this year's budget, 
- discuss plans for the book fair, 
- hear reports from the technology, building and grounds, fundraising committees, and
- web site update, and our new Google Group. 
 
Please join us as we set the RPA priorities for the year. Finally, if you're unable to make in person and would like to join us on Skype please let me know ASAP. We hope you can join us. 
 
Best Regards,
Marianne
