November Wrap-Up & December Planning

Dear Ravenswood Families and Friends,

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's raffle. Hands, our annually-returning Austrian body-builder-turned-emcee facilitated this year's raffle and was incredibly "pomped opp" by the participation of everyone! Ravenswood runs a tight school budget, and fundraisers like these allow us to do what we do for kids each day. Thanks for joining in through your time, effort and generosity financial support! A special thank you all our parent volunteers and to parent Erin Szott for all her work in organizing this year's raffle! 

Two things to put on your radar and one concluding thought below:

International Club Potluck: Join us this Friday with a dish to share for a school-wide potluck! Bring a traditional dish from you culture or upbringing and enjoy a Friday evening dinner celebrating our diverse Ravenswood community! To accommodate our families with food allergies, please bring a list of ingredients from your dish. 

Supporting Our Community During the Holidays: Every year, we collect gift card donations (Target only, please) to give to Ravenswood families in need over the holiday season. If your family is interested in donating gift cards, please bring them to the office over the next two weeks and we will distribute to families in need before the winter break. 

These next few weeks leading up to break will be packed and go quickly. Please send your children to school every day they are healthy as we have a lot planned for them! Thank you for your unbelievable support and commitment to our students, staff and each other. Ravenswood is a school community like no other and we are grateful for the chance to be part of it every day. 

Have a great week, everyone. 


Mr. Manaen and Mrs. Karrel
