Message from RPA President
Thank you to the middle school parents who provided food for the teacher appreciation breakfast this morning and especially to the room parents and Julie Vega for organizing this event.  Room parents will be in contact with the other middle school advisory classes and elementary classes to host 2 other teacher appreciation breakfasts later this year.  

We are missing out on fundraising opportunities as we still do not have a VP of Fundraising.  If you are interested and can attend (or call in to) a few RPA meetings which are on the first Wednesday of the month at 8:30 am, we could really use your help. The focus would be on maximizing fundraising from our existing sources:  dues, escrip, Amazon, Sees candy sales, Box Tops, and the Raskob Social.  Any thoughts on streamlining the process or adding a fundraiser that requires minimal work would be an added bonus.  The job is not as hard as it sounds as Dayna Broussard takes care of Sees and Box Tops and helps us to get the word out about escrip.  Also, we already have a host and a committee of volunteers for the Raskob Social on March 14th and just need help with organization.  Please contact me at if you are interested.

We are working on parent education events for the first week in December and for later in 2015.  If you have any suggestions of speakers who might be of interest, please contact Marjorie Stampur-Kurn at vp ?...   Last year we had an event discussing internet safety for our children which was presented both to the parents and to the students and an event about anxiety in children with learning differences.  We also had one of our parents lead a discussion about higher education for children with learning differences.

Lastly, please remember that our next RPA meeting will be Wednesday, November 5th at 8:30 am in the California Room.

Best Regards, 

Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
