Presidents' Message
Happy Thursday!

We hope you are well and keeping dry! 

In Edee's note that went out this week she mentioned some Raskob families perform service in honor of Dr. King.  If you would like to incorporate service into your weekend there are many events and or
service  opportunities in the bay area. 

If time is an issue, and you still want to do something, you could always purchase a One World Futball for Raskob's campaign.   Their goal is in reach, please help close the gap.

Speaking of Raskob's Service Learning project, isn't it amazing, the students nearly  $800 at the Holiday Bazaar!  Thank you so much for your purchases.

As we go about our busy lives, we'd like to offer something to ponder...

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?"

                                    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have a good weekend!

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  or Tiffin Groff at  .
