It's a busy time at Raskob.  I hope you will find the newsletter very informative this week as it lays out details about numerous upcoming events.
Let's just say, your first week in November is going to be action packed with four major happenings
First, the Book Fair will take place in the newly spruced up Raskob library on November 4th through the 6th. 

Third, the RPA meeting will be at 8:30 am November 6th in the California Room.

Fourth, the fall parent party will be held from 5 to 7:30 pm at the home of Mark and Christine Headley in Berkeley.  Be on the look-out for info coming out next week.
Lastly, thank you to all of the parents in Mr. Lopez and Ms. Sweeney's advisory classes for bringing breakfast items today to the wonderful Raskob faculty and administration.
