Inclement/Cold Weather Procedures – Students will be allowed into the main hall starting at 8:15 AM on days when the “feels like” temperature is below 10o.  Just like we have done when it is rainy, students stay in the main hall then are dismissed to lockers at 8:25AM.  As usual, our cut off time for student to be considered on time is 8:40 AM.  A student is tardy if he/she enters for the day after 8:40 AM.  When the snow returns, only students with snow pants and boots may play on the grassy and wood chipped areas of our playground.  All other students will remain on the blacktop/plowed areas. Thank you in advance for making sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.

 

 


 

LITERACY NIGHT FLYER 2016
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25TH - RAWSON 4;30 - 7;00

Dear Rawson Families, 

Happy New Year! Rawson students have had an exciting Holiday Season with our focus on the Character Trait of Kindness.  Please note the specific details below that highlight how each student and staff member contributed.  On behalf of all the Rawson Staff, we hope your 2015 ended pleasantly and 2016 is off to a great start.  Thanks for your efforts helping your student be his or her best. 

Random Acts of KindnessRawson School continued efforts to grow in character by focusing on the area of Kindness.  Students and staff recognized each other by adding Kindness ornaments to our tree in the front hallway.  The tree was full and because we reached a goal of 1,000 recognitions, I had the pleasure of dressing as Ronnie Rocket, the high school’s mascot, for our Holiday Sing-Along.  

5th Grade Environmental Camp - The 5th graders will be selling O&H Kringle as their only fund raiser to help get them to Camp Upham Woods in May. The sale will run from  2/18 to 3/4. The pick up is at Rawson on 3/16 from 3:45 - 5:00. Please consider buying a few, they freeze well!

MAP Testing in January - Rawson students will participate in mid-year testing.  MAP, which stands for Measure of Academic Progress, allows us to monitor student growth compared to last fall and even past year’s assessments. Students will set a personalized goal in Reading and Math.  Feel free to contact a teacher or me with any questions.

Cold Weather Reminders - A reminder that students will be allowed into the building early on mornings with inclement weather.  When the “Feels Like” temperature is below 10 degrees, students will be allowed in at 8:15 am.  Despite this safety measure, it is always necessary to dress for the weather.

Safety Trainings for Rawson Staff - Please be aware that Rawson School staff has participated in trainings with Captain Mike Bolender, founder of the Peaceful Warrior Training Group.  All SM Schools and the District Office will go through similar training.  Rawson students participated in Fire Drills as well as a Lock and Hold Drill to practice safe responses.  Safety is at the forefront of our efforts and we thank you for your role in signing in when entering the school and driving safely in our parking lot.

Parking Lot Safety and RespectThe school community, the SM Police, and I continue to monitor our parking lot for safety.  A reminder that parking in handicapped parking spots without proper tags or license plates is illegal.  Violators will be ticketed.   There are members of our community that rely on that parking spot.  Thanks again for showing respect for our traffic and parking routines and not simply acting out of your own convenience to the detriment of others.  Together, we all help make Rawson School its best!

Respectfully,

 
Colin Jacobs 

Principal of Rawson Elementary
