Message from RPA President

Welcome Back!  


We had our first RPA meeting of 2014 on January 8.  Please note that the RPA meetings are the first Wednesday of each month at 8:30 am in the California Room (across the street from the Raskob building and Marlen can give you directions).  Our next meeting will be on February 8 at 8:30 and we will also be one of our quarterly coffees.  We welcome all parents as it is a great way to learn more about Raskob, meet parents who may have walked in your shoes and get involved in helping the school.

Speaking of getting involved, we have a number of opportunities available.  Please note that any help that you give the RPA can count toward your 20 hour per year Rakob service requirement.  


Here are a few opportunities:

1. Google Group - we are looking for someone to get our Google Group running and to be the ongoing moderator.  Much of the ground work has been done, it will require several hours to get the group going during the first month and then a small amount of time each week to be the moderator of the group.  Please contact Marjorie if you are interested.

2. Thursday Notes - Bridget is looking for an apprentice to help with the invaluable task of producing the RPA Thursday Notes each week. Contact Bridget if interested in sharing this role.

3. Hospitality - We are looking for parents who are interested in helping with hospitality.  Currently, we have 2 8th grade parents who have handled this for a number of years and would like to share their knowledge (and work) with some new parents. Contact Karen or Lisa.

There are many other areas where we could use new ideas, energy and people.  We have a small group of 5 - 10 parents who are doing most of the work and we need help.  If you are unable to attend the morning RPA meetings, but want to get involved, please contact me, Marianne.

Happy New Year!
