Hello Rashkis families!
Thank you to everyone who attended the Walk for Education! The weather was gorgeous and I hope a good time was had by all.
This week, we will be having a “Farmer’s Market” at Rashkis! Chartwells and Foster Caviness Produce have partnered with CHCCS and Rashkis to bring this experience to our school this coming Thursday. All classes will have the opportunity to come and spend 10-15 minutes at the market. Some of the possible activities include a demo area where a chef will be making a dish using fresh produce for student to sample, a local farmer talking about growing sweet potatoes, a “guess the greens” table that features different kinds of locally grown greens, and a farmer’s market area with items such as sweet potatoes, onions, apples, yellow squash, etc. Students will be given play money that they can use to “purchase” a few pieces of produce to take home to their families.
Parents should have received a blackboard connect message earlier this week regarding the new elementary report cards. Our district is transitioning to a standards-based report card in all elementary schools. More information about the new report cards will be sent home at the end of the month. The first quarter of school will end on Friday, October 28. Teachers will be scheduling first quarter conferences with all parents, and report cards will be distributed at these conferences.
Just a reminder that this coming Thursday, October 20, is a delayed opening. Students should come to school at 9:30, and buses will run two hours later than usual.
Enjoy the coming week!
The Rashkis Way
Rashkis students do their best
In reading, math, and all the rest.
At Rashkis, we obey the rules
In our class and in our school.
We respect ourselves and others, too.
We expect the best in all we do.
In everything we do and say,
We think about the Rashkis Way:
