Dear Rawson Families –
Thanks for playing your part in making this year another successful one at Rawson. Here is other information to help us finish strong.
State Character Education Conference at Alverno College- In this newsletter is an invitation to you and other community members to attend the Character Education State Conference at Alverno College. The School District of South Milwaukee is partnering with Alverno and this allows for families, community members, and SM staff to attend the opening presentation on Thursday, June 19th by Principal Baruti Kafele for a reduced rate of $25.00. Deadline to register is June 6th. All are welcome!
Character Education and JDRF Donations–We are continuing to focus on the character trait of Perseverance. After our kickoff assembly with friends from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, we accepted donations to the foundation through May 23rd. I am pleased to share that the school received over $3,300 in donation from caring and generous people like you. Our All School Walk was celebratory since we exceeded our goal and we had a gorgeous day of weather. Thank you for modeling these traits and supporting your child as he or she develops powerful habits. Persevering is always more enjoyable when surrounded by caring people!
Snow Make Up Days – A reminder that we have another make up day.
Thursday, June 12th is a full day in school.
Friday, June 13th is a half day and will be the last day of school.
Class Requests – Please use the enclosed document and note the reason for request. All requests are subject to school approval and decisions are based on learning factors not merely preferences. Deadline to return a request is Friday, June 13th- the last day of school.
Rawson Upgrades – Over the summer you will notice work being done on Rawson School and the other SM schools. Rawson School will be replacing windows and frames throughout the entire building. We are also upgrading the lighting in our parking lot and around the school.
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.
