Exciting news, events, and plans abound!
It's Raskob Parent Social Time! On Saturday, November 7th from 5 to 7:30 pm the Raskob Parents Association will hold a fall party for parents and guardians. This casual event will be for parents only at the home of Mark and Christine Headley in Berkeley near the Claremont Hotel. There will be wine, hor d'oeuvres and a chance to meet other parents and guardians who have children like yours. This is purely a social event and was requested by parents who really enjoyed attending Raskob's Social last March. Stay tuned for more details.
More exciting plans! We had a good turnout for our RPA meeting last week in which we discussed several media worthy items.
First, for those of us who hate packing lunches every day, Raskob is working with the Epicurean Group (who provide lunches for many schools such as Head Royce and who run the HNU cafeteria) to establish a lunch service for our students. Parents will be able to order the lunches online beginning sometime in January and they will be delivered to the students. Wednesday pizza day will continue.
Second, the Raskob library is about to get a facelift! Thanks to the RPA's donation of almost $1,000, the library will receive some TLC. It will be painted, get new furniture, and existing books will be cataloged and reorganized. Once the magic happens, it will be easier to determine what new books to purchase. See info about the school book fair.
Finally, FYI our amazing teachers are getting some added help in the classrooms from some HNU students. The HNU Students are never left alone with our children. They are strictly there to assist the teachers and aides.
I hope to see even more of you at the next RPA meeting on 11/6 and at the Friday Coffees every Friday near the parking lot!
