What a view!
This is the view our children see everyday from the playground.
Message from RPA President

Good Afternoon and Happy First Day of October!
We have a lot of exciting events planned for the month of October and November. Come to the RPA meeting tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. to find out more about these special events.
First, Friday morning coffee will be served in the library instead of the playground.  Please join us for coffee and our RPA meeting.  Come meet parents, learn more about the school and share your ideas!
Second, The Teacher Appreciation Breakfast will be Thursday, October 15th in the staff room next to the playground.  The Lopez and Sweeney advisory classes have been asked by their room parents to sign-up to bring breakfast items.  They are well on their way to making this a wonderful experience for your teachers.
Finally, Mark your calendars! The Book Fair is coming... 
It will run from November 4th through the 6th.  This special event is well-loved by parents and students all around.  Proceeds from the sale will be used to purchase additional books for Raskob classrooms and the library.  Please contact Julie Porte- Vega,  if you would like to help.  

I hope you have a good weekend!

Best Regards, 
Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
