Dear Rawson Families –
Through this mid-year stretch, it was so nice to connect with many of you through Parent/Teacher conferences. Looking into March, we look forward to seeing you at events like the Art Show & Ice Cream Social as well as the Spring Concert.
Report Cards- You will receive your student’s report card on Friday, March 13th. It would be helpful to provide feedback on the form included in the report card. This feedback is vital to making adjustments to the format. Parent feedback was strongly considered after Trimester 1 to make any necessary changes. As usual, your voice is valued and we appreciate your time!
Extensions of Learning – Like in February, Rawson School will have many opportunities to extend learning in March. There will be the district Spelling Bee, field trips, participation in Arts and Community Education (ACE) performances, TechKnow kids will be offered later this year to 5th graders, Mad Science Spy Academy, and our spring Book Swap at the end of this month. We are proud of the numerous learning opportunities for our students!
5th Grade Camp Sign Up – Attention 5th Grade families, the deadline to sign up and pay for camp is Thursday, April 2nd. Camp will again be at Upham Woods on May 20th -22nd. Should there be financial challenges that may keep your student from going, please contact your child’s teacher or Mr. Jacobs to explore options that allow your student to go. We welcome any other questions you might have.
5th Grade Camp and Scrip order – Did you know you can help Rawson 5th graders with their upcoming camping trip? All proceeds from the March 13th Scrip order will help Rawson School cover materials and supply costs. You may designate a 5th grader on the order form and direct your order’s profit to help him or her specifically. Thank you for participating!
Students Out Due to Illness – Please understand the spirit behind the district absence policy. When a child is out due to illness, he or she needs to be fever free without medicine for 24 hours in order to return to school.The policy is to make sure illness is not spread throughout a class and the school. This policy is School Board approved. Often times, students return to the health room and they also run the risk of passing on illness to their classmates. Thank you for understanding this policy.
Parking Protocol – We all understand how crowded the parking lots can get in the morning and especially at dismissal. We appreciate you keeping the designated areas open for the daycare vans. Please remember that parking in the crosswalks or leaving your vehicle unattended in an aisle is prohibited. Whether picking up or dropping off around the edge of the lot, be respectful of those behind you. As usual, thank you for being safe and patient in our parking lot.
