Dear Rawson Families -
Happy New Year! Rawson Staff and I wish you the best in 2017 and are so ap-preciative of your supportive efforts that help your student and the school. We look forward to a prosperous year filled with student success and we are thankful to work toward that with you as partners. Below are updates as to a few of the many ways we promote student success and safety:
Cold Weather Reminders - A reminder that students will be allowed into the building early on mornings with inclement weather. When the weather is below a “feels like” temperature of 10 degrees, students will be allowed in at 8:15 am. Despite this safety measure, it is always necessary to dress for the weather.
Wolf of the Week – Rawson Elementary has continued our weekly recognition of one student in each grade through the Wolf of the Week. A “Student of the Week” lawn sign is delivered to their home to be proudly displayed for the week. After the week, the sign is mysteriously moved to the home of next week’s hon-oree. Please see Rawson’s website to see pictures of Wolves of the Week. Families of Students of the Week can share your own photos with us at school - firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to post them!
Upcoming Events – Please check out the upcoming dates that go through Feb-ruary. As usual, there is a lot going on for you and your student. From Literacy Night to the Decade Dance, there is something for everyone.
The Great Kindness Challenge – Now that we donated food to “Stuff the Bus”, each school in South Milwaukee will participate in the national movement known as the Great Kindness Challenge. We are joining thousands of other schools across America in promoting kindness, supporting the effort to build a school in Pakistan, and celebrate the ways students help each other each day. From Jan-uary 24th through 27th, Rawson will conduct a coin drive, participate in Spirit Days, and gather for an all school assembly. Thanks in advance for any dona-tions and for allowing your student to show their school spirit.
As usual, we need you to show kindness and respect when entering, parking, and exiting our parking lot. Please remember that we share that space together and our students deserve a safe, respectful environment at their school.
