Happy Thursday all!
Exciting news! At our RPA meeting last Friday, we agreed to meet a request from the Raskob faculty for 30 additional Chromebooks and a Chromebook cart. Including licenses and other necessities, the funding request was for approximately $10,500. We are using funds raised from the Social last year as well as money from dues. The new Chromebooks should be available for use when students return from winter break. The additional Chromebooks will allow for one to one coverage of each middle school student. The fifth graders also use Chromebooks from time to time so that they are familiar with them when they enter middle school. Elementary students primarily use existing iPads and MacBooks.
Our next RPA Meeting and Quarterly Coffee will be on Friday, December 4th. We are delighted our speaker for the quarterly coffee will be Dr. Cunningham, the neuropsychologist associated with Raskob.
Do you ever wonder about Raskob graduates? Alumni Night, where Raskob alumni and their families talk about high school (and sometimes college) will be held in the California Room on the evening of December 10th. Although this event is primarily of interest to 7th and 8th graders, everyone is welcome.
Please remember to turn in your See's Candy order forms by November 18th to the Raskob office!
