Message from RPA President
Our next Raskob Parents Association (RPA) meeting is on Wednesday, November 5th in the California Room at 8:30 am.  We will discuss the book fair, the holiday teacher appreciation gift and upcoming parent education events.  We hope to see you there!

Please remember to send or bring in your dues.  They are the RPA's second largest source of funds. So far about 55% of families have contributed.  Any amount is welcome and will be used carefully. 

Best Regards, 

Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
