Message from RPA President

Toast & Taste Raskob Adult Social is this Saturday night, March 8, from 6:30-9:30pm in Rockridge (details are provided below).  We hope that many of you will be there and please feel free to drop by even if you have not sent in your RSVP.  There will be food, drinks, a short presentation on mindfulness, an opportunity to make donations to the school in targeted areas and, most importantly, adults who share a common bond to socialize with.  Should you wish to make a donation, checks or credit cards will be accepted.

WASC, the board that is currently reviewing Raskob's accreditation, will meet with parents this Sunday, March 9, from 4-5pm in the Raskob library.  Meeting with parents is an important part of the accreditation process, so please try to attend to answer questions and participate in the discussion.  No members of the Raskob staff will be in attendance. Please RSVP to me.

The parent education presentation by Dr. Michael Tompkins will be on Thursday, March 27, from 7-8:30pm.  Dr. Tompkins is an expert on anxiety in children and will focus on anxiety associated with learning differences. Please RSVP to Marjorie Stamper-Kurn if you plan on attending.

I hope to see you this Saturday and Sunday!
