Message from the President
Welcome back! 

I hope that you are all energized to get 2016 off to a good start.  A good way to do just that is to attend our first RPA meeting of the year this Friday, January 8th at 8:30 am in the California Room.  We will start planning the Raskob Social (scheduled for March 19th), analyze our new scrip card fundraising program, and talk about parent education and support among other things.
There will be a Teacher Appreciation breakfast on Thursday, January 14th.  The middle school advisory classes taught by Ms. Hagstrom and Ms. Sweeney will be responsible for bringing breakfast items.  The room parents have sent out a sign up list so please help out as the faculty really enjoys these breakfasts.  Remember it's the faculty that makes Raskob the special place that it is.
Our next RPA Meeting and Quarterly Coffee will be on Friday, February 5th and we will have Polly Meyer, Director of the Raskob Clinic and of the Raskob Summer Program as our guest speaker.  Polly is a great source of information about books and other resources that can help our kids and can speak about the summer program and special services that Raskob offers.
 Yes, I bought the Warriors blanket at the Holiday Bizarre.  :)

Best Regards,

2016 Youth to Youth Conference for Middle Schoolers
"More than 80 high school leaders from the San Ramon Valley and Castro Valley are going to be asking 350 middle school youth to "MY WAY" on Saturday, March 5, 2016

For the past several months these high school students have been working enthusiastically planning drug prevention programs, participating in leadership activities and having a whole lot of fun while planning this conference for your 6th, 7th or 8th grader. 

High school leaders will guide their younger peers through skits, panel discussions, team building challenges, and small group activities.  More than 20 workshops will be offered throughout the day.  The conference will end with an exciting dance geared towards middle school students.  More than just an event, the Youth to Youth Middle Conference is a way to see the best in teens and their leadership skills.   If your kids like hanging out with their friends, meeting new friends, having fun, dancing and good food ~ then this is the conference for them."

 Space is limited and fills up quickly
