Arts in Action
SAVE THE DATE - Friday, February 26 6-8 pm for Family Dance Night
It is almost time for the annual Rashkis Family Dance Night! Please mark your calendars for the whole family to join us in the gym for a fun night of food, dancing, raffle prizes and a Silent Auction fundraiser to benefit the Arts In Action program.
North Carolina Arts in Action "kicked' off their 11th year of dance residency programs with the Rashkis 4th graders in December. The students will present a full-scale performance with live music and sets in April. The Arts in Action program is funded through donations from parents, the community and the PTA. Family Dance Night is our biggest fundraising event with a Silent Auction that promises to have something for everyone including Disney World One-Day Hopper passes, signed Duke and UNC balls, gift certificates for local shows, restaurants and hotels, local summer camps and classes for kids and of course, experiences offered by our favorite Rashkis teachers. Hope to see everyone there! If you have any items to donate to the auction or are interested in helping on the night of the dance, please contact Tracy Strong at email@example.com or Michelle Wood at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello Rashkis families,
Thank you families and students for participating in our PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) Spirit Week last week. It was a fun way for us to review and revisit our school behavior expectations.
This Tuesday, February 9, is the 100th day of school! We are asking students to celebrate by dressing as though they were 100 years old. Also for the 100th day, the PTA is asking students to bring in 100 dimes (although any coins will be fine). Money raised will go toward PTA funds for our teachers.
Also on Tuesday, at 8:00 am, our PTA and SIT will have a joint meeting in the media center. There will be a new parent social, as well as a guest speaker at the meeting on the topic of gun safety.

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:
