RUN 4 RAVENSWORTH
This week is the LAST WEEK for students to turn in money for Run 4 Ravensworth in order to be eligible for prizes — the deadline is May 24! We know the end of the school year can get busy, but PLEASE don't forget to send in those donations. Though we've already surpassed our fundraising goal of $20,000, we still have more than $6,000 to go to meet our reach goal of $30,000 and see Ms. Salata and Mr. Bourjaily dye their hair blue and gold. We can do it!!!

The video game trucks are already booked and ready for students who raise $300 or more. Those who raise $175 or more will get to attend an ice cream party on June 3, where EVERY attendee will win a raffle prize. We've got Sky Zone passes, tickets to a George Mason University event, family admission to Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park, and so many more amazing prizes up for grabs. Don't miss out! And thank you to all of the families who've already turned in donations!

RAVENSWORTH PTA DIRECTORY UPDATE
Last May, Governor Northam approved HB-1 Scholastic records, prohibiting access to directory information, which establishes that “no school shall disclose the address, phone number, or email address of a student”. As a result, the PTA will no longer be printing a student directory.
