Dear Rawson Families,

Thank you for your participation in your child’s education and for your partnership with Rawson School.  It has been a very successful start despite many changes.  We have had a few days with a new start and end time and everyone has adjusted well.  

PAWSitively Rawson On Wednesday, September 3rd, we had our student training day.  Every student took turns learning about school expectations in the areas of the classroom, playground, lunchroom, hallways, assemblies, and bathrooms.  You may have seen student passports, an expectations matrix, and a more detailed letter from me.  This has been an excellent way for all students, staff, and families know and live out respectful and responsible routines.

School District and Website Please access the district and school website for updated information.  It can be accessed at www.sdsm.k12.wi.us then find Rawson under the School tab.

PTO MeetingOur first meeting was Tuesday, September 9th in the Rawson Library at 6:30 pm.  As I shared at Open House, meetings are the first Tuesday of each month.  Our next meeting is October 7th.  Please join us!

Parking ProtocolWe 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 busses and daycare vans.  Please remember that parking in the crosswalks or leaving your vehicle unattended in an aisle is prohibited and you may even be ticketed.  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.

Thank you for contributing to a successful start, for signing in at the office when you enter the building.


Mr. Jacobs
Rawson Principal
