Welcome to the Rashkis Elementary PTA!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The Rashkis Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a membership organization that works to support the students, families, teachers, staff, and administration of Rashkis Elementary. We strive to be a voice for all children, a resource for the families in our community, and strong advocates for the education and well-being of our children.

With more than 500 students at Rashkis this year, your PTA membership donations help fund programs and activities that help make our school a dynamic place for every one of these students, including technology used throughout the school and $350 for every teacher to purchase needed supplies. In years past, the Rashkis PTA has helped raise the funds necessary to build our incredible playground, provide new carpets to our teachers and the classrooms that were most in need, and provide financial assistance to our teachers and staff to facilitate field trips for our higher grades. Your willingness to volunteer ensures that we can continue to support our teachers and sponsor popular events such as the Book Fair and the Fall Dance.
