Important Reminder: No ASP Tommorrow 
Message from RPA President

The Raskob Open House will be Wednesday, May 21, from 

6-7:30pm.  The RPA will provide a pizza dinner for students and their families.  We would like parents and guardians to sign up to bring fruit, veggies and paper goods by clicking here.  If you sign up to bring things, please try to arrive 5 to 10 minutes before 6 pm so that we can set everything up.  

Our last RPA meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, June 4 at 8:30am in the California Room. We will evaluate what worked and what could be improved upon this year and start planning for next year.  We still need more parents and guardians to become involved so please let us know if you are willing to help next year.  Any time spent on RPA activities counts toward your 20 hours per year Raskob service requirement. 

Our first big event next year will be the Welcome Barbecue for new and returning students and their families on Saturday, August 27, from 4 to 7 pm at Lake Temescal Regional Park in Oakland.  More details will be forthcoming in August. Mark your calendars as this is a great event to kick off the new school year!


Best Regards,
