October 8-12th is Walk to School Week

The National Center for Safe Routes to School encourages students to walk or bike to school one week of the year, and, if possible, continue for the rest of the year! It's fun, it's healthier, and it's better for our environment.

The week of October 8th is 2018 walk to school week and the PTSA will be holding a celebration right before school on Friday, October 12th! Get up a littler earlier, put on your sneakers (or, boots if it's raining) and we'll see you at the school!

We could use a few more volunteers for this event. Please send an email to if you're able to help out! 


Our first PTSA meeting is this Thursday, October 11th - Join us for parent education with counselor Soo Chin.

Our PTSA meets quarterly and all members and non-members are invited to attend. This week we will meet on Thursday, October 11th at 7 p.m. in the school library. We will briefly discuss PTSA business and then will hear from our very own Soo Chin!

Ms. Chin will be talking about the Love and Logic parenting philosophy and introducing a new parenting class that she will be offering starting October 24th. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there! 


Conference week is coming up! Let's take care of our hard-working teachers.

RHE conference week is coming! On October 15th, 16th, and 18th our students get out of school early but our teachers work long hours; they come in early for goal setting conferences and many end up staying late.

It is a PTSA tradition to provide hearty snacks for our teachers on those days. As always, we rely on parent volunteers to pull this off. Helping out is easy: sign up for a specific item here, then bring your contribution to school on the day you've chosen. Thank you in advance for pitching in!


Spirit Wear is here!

It's time for our twice-annual spirit wear order. Show your Raccoon pride, order here.  Questions? Reach out to  Rachel Ingalls
