Presidents' Message
Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope you had a restful spring break and are getting back into the swing of things!

Our children are so lucky to have such dedicated teachers and staff looking after them. Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up, and we could use some volunteers to make this week truly special. Your Room Parent will be sending out an email asking for specific ways you can help. Thank you in advance for volunteering your time.

As a board, we are working hard to make Raskob the best experience it can be for all.  Therefore soon, we will be asking for more fundraising help in order to purchase items requested by the teachers and staff.  Please consider making a donation if have not done so already.

Our monthly RPA meeting will be this Friday at 8:30 AM; it would be great to have you join us and learn more about our wonderful school.
