Dear Rashkis Teachers, Parents & Students:
Please help Rashkis reach 100% participation in the Speak Up Survey! Speak Up, a national online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives individuals the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning 21st century education and technology. Your valuable feedback can be used to help influence our local planning and decision-making regarding these topics! Each year, findings are summarized and shared with national and state policy makers. Participating schools and districts can access their data online, free-of-charge in February 2015.
Last year a new digital classroom learning environment was established for CHCCS students that enables our school and the district to better engage, share, and participate in a collaborative learning community. This new district-managed system, powered by eChalk and Google Apps for Education, will provide student access to online classrooms, an email account, Google Drive, and other instructional tools. At Rashkis, the Instructional Technology Facilitator (Alison Webster) and School Librarian (Courtney Minton) will work with current 1st through 5th grade classes to ensure that students are using these resources appropriately and effectively. Please see the district website for more information.

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:
