Rashkis News

Hello Rashkis families!

Happy New Year! We had an interesting week back from winter break. I hope everyone has been able to stay warm during this extended wintry weekend.

The new year is a great time for some important reminders. In order to keep our school safe and secure,all of our exterior doors are locked throughout the school day. We ask that all visitors enter only through the front (main) entrance during school hours. Due to the large number of car riders each morning, it is important that we keep the line moving. If you need to walk your child to the door or get out of your car for any reason, we ask that you park in a regular parking space instead of using kiss and go. In the afternoon, all car riders must be picked up by 2:40.


Attendance - This year we have seen an increasing number of absences for extended vacations (one week or more). Vacations can be great learning experiences. However, if at all possible, please schedule longer trips during school breaks. Spring break this year is March 23-April 2 and summer break is June 9-August 27. When students miss multiple days of school it can impact their learning.


Make-up Days - In order to make-up the two days we missed last week due to inclement weather, Tuesday, January 16 and Monday, February 19 will now be regular school days.


Spirit Week - This coming week is PBIS Spirit Week at Rashkis Elementary! Next week is PBIS Spirit Week! PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports. Each day next week our school will focus on a different Rashkis ROARS behavior expectation.

This is an important mid-year reminder for students about appropriate and positive behaviors to display in school.


Monday 1/8 Respectful: Dress to Impress. Students will wear an "impressive" outfit to show respect.

Tuesday 1/9 Organized: Wacky Tacky Tuesday. Students will be the opposite of organized and dress in their wackiest and tackiest outfit.

Wednesday 1/10 Active Learners: Wear active/athletic/workout clothes or sportswear.

Thursday 1/11 Responsible: Students can show responsibility by remembering to wear purple or yellow (or Rashkis gear) and bring a Show-and-Tell item.

Friday 1/12 Safe: Hat Day. Students will keep their heads safe and warm wearing a hat (school appropriate).


From our PTA!:

Rashkis Directory Now Available

Attached please find the 2017-18 Rashkis Directory. This year, the PTA is testing the idea of going paperless with the directory. However, if anyone would like a printed version we can provide hard copies of the directory for those who send a request to rashkispta.president@gmail.com. If we find that printed directories are preferred we will re-evaluate this next year.

Spirit Night!

Our next Spirit night at The Loop on East Franklin Street is just around the corner!  Join us on Tuesday, January 9, 4-10 p.m. for great food and also support your Rashkis PTA!

The Rashkis Directory is attached to this message. The directory lists only students whose parents opted to have their information included.

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:
