Presidents' Message
Happy Holidays Raskob Community!

As we count down to the beginning of 2017, we would like to send out a Big Shout of thanks to all the hard working teachers, staff and support team at our wonderful school.  The Team that keeps our kids moving forward in a very complex world is truly exceptional and, as parents and guardians, we know it takes spirit and inspiration to do the job so well.

Also a very warm thanks to the many members of our community who have helped with events, planning and getting the many things done to support Raskob.   You folks are the RPA!

This Friday we have a very special event with the Winter Concert at  10:45am in the Public Market (AKA HNU Cafeteria).  We hope you can make it! Come early (10:15) for the best selection of crafts made by our own Raskob students.  Proceeds will benefit One World Play.

And a final shout out for the fantastic School effort to work with One World Play - this local organization gets indestructible footballs to kids all over the world - and you can buy one for their program and get one (or 3!) sent to you.  They make fabulous presents and even my dogs can't destroy ours!

All the very best wishes for a wonderful New Year!

Around Raskob: Student Work
Mrs. Cordes' middle school classes spent most of the first trimester studying the book Chains by Laurie Halse.  This picture shows some of the culminating projects from students.  Their projects represent a significant scene from the story.


In art, Raskob students have been very busy creating masterpieces.  Here are some of their most current works of art.
