Rashkis News

Hello Rashkis families,

Thank you, thank you, for a FABULOUS Teacher Appreciation Week. We have all felt the love the past week through the flowers, cards, food and sweet treats provided by the PTA and well as the daily gift card drawings! We are truly fortunate to work with such a supportive and caring parent community at Rashkis!


It is time to elect our School Improvement Team parent representatives for 2018-19. Ballots printed on green paper were sent home with your child’s progress report on May 4. Please read the ballot, vote for 3 parent representatives, and return the ballot to school by May 18.


Just a reminder that this Wednesday, May 16 is now a Teacher Workday, and there will be no school for students.

Thursday, May 17 is a delayed opening. School will start two hours later - at 9:50 - on Thursday.


Spring Cleaning?  Have some books that need a new home?

Why not donate those books to some of our very own Rashkis families that need some books for the summer?

When: April 23-May 18

What We Need: Books for ALL ages:Pre-School-Adult

Where: There will be tubs in each hallway and the front foyer

Who: These books will be donated to Rashkis families through the Read 2 Me Tailgate Stories Program

Why: Because you can help out your Rashkis family!


Rashkis Field Days will be starting soon and we need your help to make them run smoothly!  We need volunteers to help with writing ribbons, starting relays, setting up equipment and running stations.  No experience is necessary – we will train you! If you can help, please let Mrs. Wood know at or 919-918-2160 x 22510.

We need volunteers to work either 8:45 am – 10:45 am or 10:30am – 12:30pm. Just come to the field behind the school on your day and we will assign jobs.

If you cannot help during the field day but can send in bottled water for your child’s class, please send that to Mrs. Wood in the gym any time before the field day.

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:
