Today is a very busy and exciting day at Raskob.
For starters, tonight is Back to School Night. It begins at 6:00 this evening and is an important event. Your child's teacher will lay out their expectations for the year and answer any burning questions you may have. After you have met with the teachers, Edee and members of the Raskob Parent Association (RPA) Board will speak briefly near the lunch tables. We look forward to meeting with you tonight.
Second, the surprise T-shirts will be distributed to all students and faculty today. Please have your student wear their new T-shirt on Friday, 9/18, for the first Raskob Spirit Day of the year. The RPA is thrilled to give these shirts with our new school colors to all students and facility. The first spirit day will definitely go down in history! I hope someone gets a school-wide photo.
Finally, our next RPA meeting will be Friday, October 2nd in the Raskob Library. We will discuss and hopefully approve the budget for the year, talk about teacher appreciation, fundraising and the book fair. We are also trying to organize a social gathering for parents and guardians sometime in the fall. We had a great deal of feedback that the Raskob Social in March was great, however, many parents have suggested that it would be nice to have another social event earlier in the year. Please come and share your thoughts. Everyone is welcome!
See you tonight!
