Before the year comes to a close…

Hi Rohan Woods School Parents:

I cannot believe the school year is almost over.  It’s been such a great year and a privilege to serve the school.  There has been tremendous parental support for our events and fundraising efforts.  Thank you for your participation. 

Before the year comes to a close, I need to remind you of a few upcoming opportunities.  Casino Night is this Saturday night.  People continue to RSVP for this event so call if you want to bring more family and friends.  It’s a perfect fun-filled, casual night to enjoy with the Rohan Woods School community and friends where you can gamble with “fake” money and take a chance at winning!  If you can’t join us, please make sure to download the information for mobile bidding for some fabulous items.   

Also, I want to thank each of you for our incredible turnout at Trivia Night.  The proceeds from the event enabled us to purchase three new, engaging pieces of playground equipment.  The Fund-in-Need portion of Casino Night will also go to playground improvements, which can be accessed through mobile bidding.

You should have received the TJ’s Pizza information yesterday in your parent pouch.  This is the easiest fundraiser all year, and it allows you the opportunity to stock up on pizzas and cookie dough for the summer.  These pizzas are delicious and can be the perfect last-minute meal for kids hanging out at your house or for babysitters to serve to your kids.  You will receive the items a few weeks before summer break.

The Parents’ Association Coffee will be held on April 27th from 7:30-9:30am (The morning after the Art Show at RWS).  Stop by for a cup of coffee and stay as long as you like.  If you have a tight schedule, get a cup-to-go along with a breakfast treat.  I live just down the street from the school, and I would love to have each of you stop by.  

CALLING ALL PARENTS!  We need volunteers for Teacher Appreciation Week which is May 7-11th for recess and lunch duties.  We had an amazing turnout last year and look forward to even more participation this May.  Whether you can volunteer one hour or three, we would love to see you there.  It’s such a fun week when we can provide a break for our teachers and see our kids in action!  Please contact me or Laurie Newcomb at to tell us when you are available to help.

Finally, if you are interested in being a part of the Parents’ Association leadership or a co-chair for one of our awesome events, just let me know.  I will be rolling off as the Parents’ Association President after serving three years.  It has been my privilege to represent each of you on the Board of Trustees.  It’s hard to believe our family is about to complete our fifth year at RWS, and I look forward to the next five years.   I love this school.  The teachers, staff, parents and especially our kids, make this school like no other.  Thank you for investing in your child, this school, and our Rohan Woods School community.  

I hope to see you this Saturday!  Thanks again for your dedication to Rohan Woods School!
