Please consider making a donation to the Holiday Gift Fund for the Raskob Faculty.

This is the only time of the year that the RPA collects money for such a gift.  A donation of $50 is suggested, but any amount is welcome. Please give your cash or checks (payable to Mark Headley) to Marlen by Monday, December 14th.

Message from the President
The RPA is introducing a new Scrip Card Program!  We have been looking for some easy ways to raise money and our VP of Fundraising, Erica Dennings, has set this up for us.  You order scrip cards to give as gifts or to use when shopping and the RPA gets a percentage of the sale!  Please read the information below and click on the links to get started
Alumni Night, scheduled for December 10th, has been postponed as a number of the returning alumni have advised us that they cannot attend.  We will try to have an event in the spring, and next year we will try to set this up in October so that returning students are not dealing with finals.
If you need a last minute gift, Sees Candy sent us 41 extra cans of Toffee-ettes ($18 each) and 27 boxes of fancy chocolates ($6.20 each) by mistake.  We can sell them and keep ALL of the money! Please contact Marlen or  if you would like to purchase some.
Our next RPA meeting is Friday, January 8th at 8:30 am in the California Room.  We had a great turnout at our last meeting.  Thank you to Dr. Cunningham who led an interesting discussion about the neuropsychological evaluation process.  Thank you also to Amy Schoenblum for organizing the Quarterly Coffee and speaker.
I hope to see all of you at the Winter Concert next Friday, December 18th at 10:45 am in the big, white building hear the HNU entrance.  There will also be a Holiday Bazaar and Bake Sale put on by the 8th graders to raise money for charity.  
Happy Holidays!
Marianne Mitosinka, RPA President
