Presidents' Message
Welcome to 2017!

We hope you had a wonderful and restful year end and are enjoying the first wet winter in years (if not the traffic!).

If you have time this Friday morning, please come to our monthly Raskob Parents Association meeting from 8:30 to 9:30am in the California Room across from our school.  It's a great chance to hear what's happening at the school and get to know fellow parents and guardians!

We have some wonderful events coming up - including a talk by Professor Fumiko Hoeft on Dyslexia and Resilience.  This promises to be one of the most interesting talks the school has ever hosted.  If you have ever been tempted to learn more about dyslexia, we highly urge you to come Friday the 20th of January from 9am to 10:30 at the campus performing arts facility.

Your RPA is here to help you as well as support the mission of the school, so please let us know if we can be of any assistance!

With best wishes for a great year,

Phil and Mark 
Volunteers Needed
"Bring Out Your Goods Donation Drive"  Coodinators (2 Parents)

Savers FUNDrive is a new kind of fundraising event, one that will pay Raskob for gently-used items we collect, including clothes, shoes, jewelry, accessories and linens. 

No one has to dig into their pockets for money; they simply need to clean out their closets, something we all need to do anyway! 

But, we need two parents to help coordinate and implement this new FUNDrive.  If you want to help all of us at Raskob get our "2017 Spring Cleaning" done while making money for our school, contact either Margaret Gelini at  rev.margaretgelini@gmail.com  or Tiffin Groff at tifgroff@gmail.com  .
