Dear Rashkis Families,
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 email@example.com or 919-918-2160 x 22510. We need volunteers to work either 8:45am – 10:45am 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.

Teaching Artists Marlon Torres and Willie Hinton are working with Ms. Rippe’s and Ms.Nejera’s 3rd grade classes at Rashkis Elementary School to create Human Architecture. This is a process in which the artists guide the students through warm up sequences, choreographic games, trust and awareness exercises, as well as elementary acrobatic partnering focused on building shapes with our bodies. The resulting poses appear as spectacular feats of physical strength, but in fact are more reliant for their success on skeletal cantilevering than on brute force. The students create pieces collaboratively through experimentation. From day one of the residency, students provide stunning examples of the results of clear communication, focus, and hard physical work among trusting and creative teammates.
This residency is made possible by Arts Access in collaboration with the North Carolina Arts Council and the VSA program of the Kennedy Center. The artists want to thank North Carolina Arts in Action and the teachers at Rashkis Elementary School for their participation and support. Thank you!
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:
"If you can dream it, you can achieve it - if you work hard for it!"
