Happy Halloween!

Oh to be a middle schooler again (mmm...maybe not) with the excitement of the first dance looming on the horizon.  It's this Friday right after school until 5:30 in the California Room.

On November 4th, we have our next RPA meeting.  Be sure to attend and help shape this year for your Raskobian. 

For students getting ready to spread their wings and move on to the world of high school, be sure to attend the High School Panel on November 6th from 4 to 6 pm.  This event provides a great opportunity to meet and gain insights from past Raskob students and parents whom have already walked this path.

Thank you so much to Teen Esteem for presenting a Parent Education Event about internet safety.  

Key Info from the afternoon

The internet is a vast unregulated entity that preys on young minds
Cyberbullying and Social Media can cause irreparable  harm to our children

Most kids spend 7 hrs on screens (more than being in school or in bed for some kids)  Which can lead to aggression, anxiety and depression. 2 hours is the recommended amount

Don't Fret, Be Proactive not Reactive

Be safe out there!
