Message from the President
It is RPA fundraising season!  

The season opened with the Raskob Social last Saturday night.  Over 40 parents, guardians and faculty members attended the event which was graciously hosted by Erica Dennings.  Thank you Erica!  We also would like to thank those who donated funds to Raskob and those who pledged funds.

A fundraising letter should be arriving soon which outlines the items that the Raskob faculty would like to purchase for the school this year.  These items were reviewed by the RPA at our monthly meeting.  If you were unable to attend the Social, please consider making a donation using the self addressed envelope and either mail it to Raskob or drop it off with Marlen in the front office.  If you wish to donate for a specific category (professional development, technology, library and / or garden area), please indicate that on your check or on the credit card form.  If you wish to access your company's matching program, please make the donation to the Raskob Day School and not the Raskob Parent Association.  Please share the letter with grandparents or anyone who may wish to make a donation to Raskob.

We are hoping to receive the funds pledged at the Social and new donations resulting from the letter within the next two  weeks so that Raskob may begin purchasing the requested items.

Our next RPA Meeting and Quarterly Coffee will be on Friday, April 8th at 8:30 am.  Our guest speaker will be Stefani Wulkan, Assistant Director and Lead Teacher at Raskob.

We hope that you had a great experience with Field Studies Week and have a great spring break!
