** According to the Milwaukee County Parks Department, the Beech Street foot bridge over Oak Creek was deemed unsafe and is being rebuilt. You will not see construction of the new bridge because it is being assembled offsite and will be installed once completed. It is expected to be reopened for foot traffic by November 15th.  Thank you for your patience.



Fostering Creativity in Gifted Children
Monday, October 12, 2015 Golda Meir School - Auditorium

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 and a great first week of school.  As we emphasize routines and expectations with students, Rawson staff acknowledges that this week is a time for setting adult routines, too.  We are appreciating the safe student drop-offs, keeping the day care van/bus area clear for those vehicles, and everyone’s patience during the crowded times of entrance and dismissal.  Students follow our leads so it is great to see many positive examples. 

PAWSitively Rawson – On Wednesday, September 2nd, we had our student zone training day.  Each student took turns learning about school expectations in the zones of the classroom, playground, lunchroom, hallways, and bathrooms.  You should have received our expectations matrix and along with a more detailed letter from the staff.  We started this system three years ago and noticed improved routines, respect, and responsibility.

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.

Parent/Teacher Conferences – Thanks to those who signed up for conference times during Open House.  Conferences will take place on Wednesday, October 7th and Thursday, October 8th from 4 – 8 pm.  There will be no school on Friday, October 9th.  You will be contacted to either confirm your time or to pick a time if you did not sign up.

PTO Meeting – Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 14th in the Rawson Library at 6:30 pm.  There are many fun and exciting events planned.  Meetings will be on the first Wednesday of each month.  Please join us!

Thank you for contributing to a successful start, for signing in at the office when you enter the building, and, as usual, for being safe and patient in our parking lot!


Mr. Jacobs
Rawson Principal
