Message from RPA President
On behalf of the RPA, I want to wish Edee all of the best as she prepares for maternity leave. She is such a pleasure to work with and does a great job as Director of Raskob.  Fortunately, she has a wonderful team and we look forward to working with Stefani Wulkan who will be the Acting Director in Edee's absence.  Jessica Baiocchi, Admissions Director, continues to be a huge help to the RPA and to the school as does Marlen Valle in the Raskob office.  The RPA is fortunate to have such a good relationship with the school administration.

We will have our next RPA meeting on Wednesday, November 5th at 8:30 am in the California Room.  We will discuss the upcoming Book Fair, parent education and fundraising. We hope to see you there!

Best Regards, 

Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
