Did you ever discover the answer?

Several months ago a question was posed in the Thursday Notes about a certain teacher at Raskob who was also a student.  
It's none other than our very amazing Ms. Flores.

  Something truly wonderful happened this week for Ms. Flores, 
please read below for all of the details.

RPA President's Message
Happy Thursday!

Our last RPA meeting of the year will be on Friday, June 3rd

Special Honors
This week our newly remodeled garden area was dedicated to 
Ms. Flores.  

She is the longest serving member of the Raskob faculty and teaches every child at Raskob every day.  She also serves as mentor and coach.  The renovation of the garden was donated by the family of Alexandra Wick.  Congratulations, Ms. Flores!
