Message from the President
Happy Thursday!

I hope you've had a pleasant week and you've secured the perfect Halloween costume for your child to win the Raskob Spirit Day contests on Halloween.
The busiest week of the Raskob Parent Association (RPA) year is fast approachingYup, November starts out with a bang!   
Evite?! I hope you received yours.
 This week an Evite was sent out to all community members with all the important information for the Raskob Parent's Social on November 7th.  Please let Becky Stephens know if you did not receive it and she will send it to you.
Other important events happening the first week of November are the Book Fair, Parent Education Evening, 
and the RPA meeting. Please read below for more details.
Sees Candy! Please be on the look out for the Sees Candy order forms which will come home with your students in the next week or so.  Sees Candy is one of our most important fundraisers, so please consider ordering Sees to help meet your holiday gift needs.

There's nothing better than getting handwritten thank you notes.  We received a large envelope form students at Raskob expressing gratitude for their new shirts.  The RPA is thrilled everyone loves their new shirts. 

Have a great weekend.
Best Regards,
Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President

The Raskob Library needs you.

Please help transform our library into the place it was meant to be.  Raskob would like to unveil the "New and Improved" library sooner rather than later.  In order to do that, Jessica really needs help from parents.

Our Community Rocks!

The teachers love when they are treated to the special Staff Appreciation Mornings.

Some quotes were
 "amazing," "fabulous food," and  "thank you SO much," 

Stefani Wulkan commented that besides the great spread, these breakfasts get all the staff together in a way that they usually don't have time for and that's what she appreciates most.

Thank you community for making our teachers feel appreciated.
