Message from the President

Welcome back!  

I hope that you all had a good break and that you get back into the swing of things by attending our RPA Meeting and Quarterly Coffee tomorrowApril 8th, at 8:30 am in the California Room.  Stefani Wulkan, Assistant Director and Lead Teacher will speak and answer questions from 8:30 to 9 am.  We will then have our RPA meeting and discuss how the Social went, how much money has been raised so far, and the remaining events of the year.

Speaking of how much money we raised, you still have the opportunity to respond to the fundraising letter sent out right after the Social.  Donations will go directly toward purchasing the items identified in the fundraising letter: professional development, technology, library and garden area items.  Please make your donation soon so that Raskob can purchase the items and our students can begin to use them this year.  A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.

The RPA needs your help next year!  Please click a name if your are interested in helping  Amy Schoenblum (Sasha's mom), Mark Headley (Nora's dad), Phil and Amy Wright (Gabriella and Alexandra's parents) or me.  Jobs range from one time events (like coordinating the pizza dinner during the Raskob Open House in May) to jobs that you can do from home (like keeping the Raskob calendar and / or web site up to date) to being on the RPA Board. Because the school is small, the jobs (even board positions) are manageable.  We also frequently share jobs so that there is a back-up if someone can't attend a meeting.  Please consider stepping up as many of the office and job holders will be graduating with their students in June!

Best Regards,
