Raskob has SPIRIT!

Message from RPA President

It was great to see so many of you at Back to School Night last Thursday.  We are lucky to be part of a school with such a great faculty.
There are many ways we let the faculty know how much our community appreciates their hard work and dedication.  Three times a year we show our appreciation by hosting Teacher Appreciation Breakfasts.  Our first such breakfast will be Thursday, October 15th.  The room parents for Ms. Hagstrom and Mr. Lopez will be organizing the first breakfast, and they will contact the parents of students in those advisory classes to sign up for the needed items.  The RPA also collects funds for a cash holiday gift for each member of the staff (more on this in November) and in May we provide a catered lunch on Teacher Appreciation Day.
Our next RPA meeting will be on Friday, October 2nd at 8:30am in the Raskob Library.  We will discuss the budget, a social activity for parents in the fall, parent education, the book fair and fundraising. We will get an update on what is happening at school from Edee and / or Jessica and talk about any other issues that parents wish to raise.  It is always great to get new ideas and hear about how other schools are doing things.  An added benefit of attending meetings is getting to meet more parents and guardians who share similar concerns.  Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there!
Lastly, thank you to Amy Schoenblum for designing, ordering and distributing the new Raskob T-shirts.  Thank you also to Jennifer Weiss who was a big help in sorting all of the T-shirts.  In addition to purchasing a T-shirt for each student, the RPA purchased them for the Raskob faculty and administration.  We have received many emails and one very large Thank you!
It was our very sincere pleasure to provide these shirts for everyone!  

Best Regards, 
Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
