Dear Rawson Families -

It is hard to believe that it is already October and the fall season.  Our excellent start has continued.  It was beneficial to our students to continue to partner through Parent/Teacher Conferences.  Thanks to those who visited our Book Fair and Spirit Wear Table.  A few other details to share with you...

PTO Meetings…You’re InvitedThe PTO Meetings will be held October 12th and November 2nd.  Parents, Family Members, Community Members, Rawson Teachers, and the Principal meet to discuss how we can help make the school even better.  There are many plans and school events that we need to continue and build upon.  Come join us for this impactful hour starting at 6 pm in Rawson’s Library.


Still Talkin’ Respect – Rawson Students continue to get recognized for going above and beyond through verbal affirmations, PAWS recognitions, announcements, and through Student of the Week Awards.   There have been 4 PAWS Extra Recesses awarded and over 5,000 PAWS.  Since we have reached the 5,000 PAWS level, we are celebrating by decorating pumpkins as a school.  Stay Tuned!

Attention on Attendance -   You may already know but our school day begins at 8:30 am.  Supervision on the playground is from 8:15 until start time.  A child is tardy when he or she comes into school after 8:35am.  Please be responsible so your child does not start the day behind.  It makes a huge difference when he or she is here and on time.  These great habits continue on into great habits that last beyond school.

Thank you for your Trust - From signing in at the office when you enter the front doors to responding to classroom notes, your partnership with the school is valued.  This trust showed when we worked together during the power outage on Friday, September 30th.  Parents, Family Members, and School Staff worked together for the safety and well-being of all our students.   Thank you for your patience and trust!


Mr. Jacobs
