All Raskob parents, guardians and faculty are welcome!  There will be delicious food, beverages, people with whom you have a lot in common and an opportunity to help Raskob and its faculty get some items that will benefit our children.   This is a win win event:  a fundraiser that is actually fun!

Middle School Drivers Needed

Mr. Lopez could use a couple more drivers for the field trip to the USS Hornet in Alameda on March 27th. Drivers and chaperones would be leaving Raskob at 9 and returning to Raskob at 1:00. Please email him if you are able to drive. It sure will be a great experience/field trip for our children. 
Parent Education

SEED (Special Education Enrichment and Development) is a Lafayette based parent group for kids with LD.  They are sponsoring an LD/ADD simulation   March 28 @ 6:30 . Free but requires advanced registration.
