Message from RPA President
We are sending home a reminder with your students to please pay your RPA dues if you have not already done so.  At this time last year, over 71 percent of families had contributed versus 55 percent this year.  Our goal is 100 percent participation and any amount is welcome.

Last week your children brought home order forms for Sees candy.  This is another important RPA fundraiser.  Take care of some holiday  shopping and raise funds for our school!

Speaking of holiday shopping, please remember that the Book Fair will take place December 2-4. There will be a lot going on that week with the RPA meeting on December 3 and a parent education event on the evening of December 4. The Book Fair will be open in conjunction with these events.

Best Regards,

Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President 

RPA Activities & Information

November Update on RPA Dues Participation

Currently, 55% of Raskob families have contributed dues to the RPA (vs 71% at this time last year).  Although $55 is suggested, NO amount is too small ($5, $10, $100), as long as you contribute! HELP us achieve our goal of 100% participation by Thanksgiving.

Your RPA dues are instrumental to the following benefits:

  • Investment in teaching tools and resources to enhance learning at Raskob; fundraising to support investment
  • Parent education and other gatherings for Raskob parents
  • Coordination of room parents and volunteer opportunities
  • Book fair with LD appropriate books; Spirit Wear sales
  • Weekly RPA Notes with important reminders and pertinent information
  • Hospitality offered at a variety of gatherings including Open House, Winter Concert and Annual Awards Night
