Message from the President
Happy Thursday and Go Warriors!

We have a very busy May so please be sure to add the following dates to your calendars.

For starters, the RPA will provide the Raskob faculty with a catered lunch for 
Teacher Appreciation Day on Wednesday, May 4th.

Second, High School Information Night and Fair will be held Thursday, May 5th in the evening.  This is an informational event during which Stefani speaks to 7th grade parents and guardians followed by a fair where a number of high school representatives provide information about their schools.  

Third, our next RPA Meeting and Quarterly Coffee will be Friday, May 6th in the California Room at 8:30 am. Stefani Wulkan will be our guest speaker.  This event was postponed as the turnout at our last RPA meeting was so low. 

Finally,  May 18th will be the Raskob Open House with the RPA providing a pizza dinner.

Wow, May sure is a busy month!

Hopefully you received another reminder to consider making a donation to Raskob.
The money received will be used to purchase a number of desirable items selected by the Raskob faculty.

As of last week, less than 30% of families had made a donation either at the Social or in the weeks following.  

Thank you so much to those who have donated and for those who have not, please know that any amount will be greatly appreciated and put to good use.
