Good afternoon, Rashkis families!
Last week, your child should have brought home a bright pink School Improvement Team ballot. The deadline for returning the ballot is tomorrow, Monday, May 23. Please read the ballot, vote for two of the parent candidates to serve on our School Improvement Team, then return the ballot to school tomorrow.
We are in need of parents who are willing to be proctors for the EOG test on the mornings of June 1 and/or June 2. Proctors need to be at Rashkis from approximately 8:00 am - 12:00 noon, and will be assigned to help monitor in a room where EOG testing is taking place. If you are able to help out on one or both days, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your help will be greatly appreciated!
Reminder for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade parents....the EOG schedule is as follows:
5th grade: Wed. May 25, Thurs. May 26, Wed. June 1
4th grade: Wed. June 1, Thurs. June 2
3rd grade: Wed. June 1, Thurs. June 2
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our amazing PTA officers and members. Our PTA has done a fantastic job of organizing fundraising and installation for our new playground area. The PTA plans many wonderful events for our community, such as the Raptor Run and Carnival and our annual Read-a-Thon. They support our staff through luncheons, Teacher Appreciation Week activities, and funds for teachers to purchase items for their students and classrooms. Thank you to all who have organized and participated in helping these events happen! Each year, our fifth graders move on to middle school and take their parents with them! Therefore, we are always in need of new involvement in our PTA. Please consider serving as a PTA officer next year, or joining the PTA and volunteering for one of the committees. Please email our current president Mel Migaly (email@example.com) or vice president Liz Allori (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
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:
