Dear Rawson Families,
There are a few events that signify the coming Spring. It was nice to see many of you at our Parent-Teacher Conferences. The Book Fair was a busy place. The Penny Wars for Patients and Box Top Challenge showed Rawson’s generosity once again. The Decades Dance was also fun and exciting. The turnout was great and a huge thanks to our PTO and Cadet Parents for all the help. Here we come, Spring!
Character Trait of Responsibility – Rawson students have been recognized over 17,000 times for their Kindness and Responsibility. Students who have been chosen for PAWS extra recess have enjoyed the benefits of great choices.
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!
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.
Parking Lot Safety and Respect – The 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!
We are looking ahead toward a few more events like the Art Show and Ice Cream Social as well as the Spring Concert.
