Message from RPA President

Our JV basketball team, the Raskob Road Runners, won its first game in the last two seasons on Monday.  It was very exciting, especially since the previous week the team lost by only a few points.  Please come and support the team for its remaining three games in the HNU gym. The dates are: Feb. 5 at 4:30, Feb. 10 at 4:00, and Feb. 26 at 4:00.  

The RPA's next Quarterly Coffee and meeting will be in the Bay Vista Room on Wednesday, Feb. 4.  From 8:30-9am Polly Mayer, Clinic Director, will speak about the Raskob summer program and answer questions, and as a follow-up to her previous visit and our last Parent Ed night, Polly will also offer some bonus ideas for enhancing executive function. The RPA meeting will immediately follow and last about 45 minutes.  We will discuss the upcoming Raskob Social on March 14 and new board member recruitment.

Please note that we have a parent education event on Thursday, Feb. 12, in the California Room from 7-8:30 pm.  More information is presented below.

Best Regards,
Marianne Mitosinka

Nurturing Persistence in Learners
Utilizing research done by Carol Dweck in her book Mindset, we discuss the benefits of a "growth mindset" over a "fixed mindset." Then, we give practical strategies for how you can encourage your children to pursue challenges and view mistakes as opportunities for growth. Find out more about Nurturing Wisdom on their website.
