Message from RPA President



Polly Mayer, Director of the Raskob Clinicgave a great presentation on books that she recommends for parents and guardians of Raskob students at our quarterly coffee yesterday. During the RPA meeting that immediately followed Polly's talk, we discussed more parent education, social events and fundraising priorities.

Parents and guardians are invited to attend the Invention Convention next Wednesday, February 12.  There will be presentations from 1-2:15pm, but if you cannot get there that early, the inventions will be displayed at the school until 5pm.  

We hope that everyone has received an Evite to attend the Toast and Taste Raskob Adult Social on March 8th from 6:30 to 9:30 pm.  This is one of the few opportunities to socialize with other Raskob parents and guardians.  There will also be an opportunity to make donations to the school. Please let us know if you can come or not.

The day after the Raskob Social, parents are asked to come to Raskob on Sunday, March 9 to meet with members of the Western Association of  Schools and Colleges (WASC) accreditation team. WASC is the commission responsible for renewing Raskob's accreditation in this academic association. No faculty members will be present as the WASC members want to hear directly from the parents about their views regarding Raskob.  The meeting will last about 1 hour and will be held in the afternoon.  More information will be forthcoming once a firm time is set.

Our next parent education event is Thursday, March 27 from 

7-8:30pm in the California Room.  The subject is anxiety and the discussion will focus on children with learning differences.  The speaker is Dr. Michael Thompkins, a prominent author, practitioner and expert on childhood anxiety.

There is a lot going on and we hope to see you at some or all of these events!


Best Regards,


Share the LOVE with Raskob
