Message from RPA President

I hope everyone has either turned in their See's Candies orders, or is planning on doing so today. Thank you to Dayna Broussard for coordinating this important RPA fundraiser.  


At the next RPA meeting on December 4, we will discuss fundraising, parent education and the launch of our parent Google group. RPA meetings begin at 8:30am and take place in the HNU California Room located in the building across from the Raskob Lobby. 


Remember to check out the wonderful Raskob spirit wear website


Happy Thanksgiving!


Best Regards,
RPA Activities & Announcements
Faculty/Staff Holiday Gifts

Let's show the Raskob faculty and staff how much we appreciate them by contributing to holiday gifts. In order to participate we ask that you please give your contribution to Marlen in the Raskob office either in person or by mail.  If you mail your contribution please send them to Marlen's attention at Raskob Day School - Holy Names University - 3520 Mountain Blvd. 94619. The suggested donation is $50 as there are many teachers, aides, therapists and administrators at Raskob, but any amount is welcome.  The funds will be consolidated, divided up and presented to the faculty members at a holiday luncheon.  Please make checks payable to Marianne Mitosinka, who is in charge of collecting the funds.  The funds should be received by Monday, December 9. Contact Marianne for questions.

Keep Those Box Tops Coming 
Your box top contributions from August and September have raised $45.00 for the RPA. Each box top is worth $0.10. Have your kids bring them in and put in the containers on the credenza in the lobby.

Important Survey for Raskob Parents
