Rashkis News

Hello Rashkis families,


Thank you to those who volunteered at or visited the Rashkis Book Fair last week. It was a great success!


This will be a very short school week. We will have regular school days on Monday and Tuesday, then we will be out of school Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 22-24, for Thanksgiving Break. During this season of thanks, I am reminded again of how very fortunate I am to work with such amazing students, exceptional staff, and supportive school community. Thank you for all you do to help support the success of our students and school each and every day. I wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Due to the long holiday weekend, there will be no Sunday Message next week. Look for the next Sunday Message the following weekend, on December 3.  


Two important announcements from the PTA:


FOOD DRIVE for families in need:

Hey Rashkis Parents! It's time for our annual FOOD DRIVE CLASS COMPETITION to support our TABLE/Adopt-A-Bag program and we need your help!

During the week of December 4 - 8, Student Ambassadors will collect donations for TABLE/Rashkis Adopt-A-Bag. The class that brings the most donations will earn the opportunity to help make the bags of food that are given to families for winter break! This is a wonderful way for kids to help other kids in our school--but we need parent volunteers to make this a success!

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:
