Hello Raptor families!
A huge thank you to all the families who contributed to our food drive last week. We collected more than double the number of items collected last year. This will allow us to provide additional food for families in need over the break and into the first part of 2017. The generosity of the Rashkis community continues to amaze and inspire me. Thank you, thank you!
Speaking of 2017, there are just four more school days before winter break. There is no school Friday, December 23 through Monday, January 2. We return to school on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.
Monday evening, December 19, our fifth graders will present a holiday musical in the gym at 6:30 pm. There will also be a brief PTA meeting at 6:15 in the cafeteria right before the musical. All are welcome to attend either or both events!
I wish all of you a restful and restorative winter break. I hope you are able to enjoy some special times with family and friends as we prepare to welcome a brand new year!
