Hello Rashkis families!
It is starting to look and feel like winter!
The Hour of Code is back! This week our all of our students will have the opportunity to try computer programming for one hour, when Mrs. Webster (our Instructional Technology Facilitator) visits every classroom between December 5th and December 12th. After a brief introduction to computer science, the students will use various devices to access web-based tutorials and/or iPad apps to get a taste of computer programming. Students and teachers alike had a blast coding last year and are excited to participate again this year, so make sure to ask your child about their Hour of Code!
This coming Thursday, Dec. 8, we will have a delayed opening. School will start two hours later than usual that morning, and buses will run two hours later as well.
This Thursday, will be Rashkis Spirit Day at California Pizza Kitchen at Southpoint Mall between 11 am and 9:30 pm, Present the flier attached to this email when you order and California Pizza Kitchen will donate 20% of your purchase directly to Rashkis. This applies to dine-in or take-out, so plan to eat at CPK this Thursday and support our school!
Friday, Dec. 9, marks the middle of the second quarter, and progress reports will be sent home with students.
Next week, Dec. 12-16, we will be collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items. These donations will be used to provide additional food over the holiday break for Rashkis families who receive food assistance from TABLE. The class that brings in the most donations will help create food bags to be distributed to families in need.
Have a great week!

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:
