Dear Rawson Families -
Reflection is always helpful during the mid-year stretch. This newsletter will highlight some of the celebrations of the past month as well as review some of the plans and expectations we have at Rawson School as we head into spring. Reflecting back on this month of March, it was great to see such a turnout at the Art Show & Ice Cream Social. Our students, staff and I look forward to seeing you at the Spring Concerts. More information is below:
Rawson Spring Concerts – Please note that the Spring Concert will be over two nights since we will be using the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center. Grades 5k, 2, and 4 will perform on Wednesday, March 29th. Grades 1, 3, and 5 will perform on Thursday night, March 30th. Both concerts start at 6:30 pm, and we are excited to use the beautiful facility with more parking!
30,000 PAW All School Celebration – We are pleased to have had our 30,000 PAW Celebration. For 10,000 we had students decorate pumpkins. For 20,000 we had an All School Movie. For 30,000, we had Classroom Buddies get together for a few songs on Friday, March 17th. It was a festive atmosphere as students and staff danced throughout classrooms and hallways. There was a conga-line sighting and lots of smiles. We are proud of the good choices and great character that students show every day. We look forward to more PAWS and celebrations.
Forward Testing – Students in grades 3 through 5 will have the opportunity to take the state test known as the Wisconsin Forward Exam. Students will demonstrate their learning in Reading, English Language Arts, and Math. More information will come from each classroom as to exact dates when students will test.
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.
