RAVENSWORTH TYPING CLUB - STARTS THIS FALL
We are starting a new after school program/club in the fall for keyboarding. The program is intended to instill 4th-6th graders with typing skills needed as they head into secondary school. The club will meet after school on a weekly basis with club dues. 

Would this be something your 4th-6th grader would be interested in? Please let us know by emailing programs@ravensworthpta.org


RAVENSWORTH PTA DIRECTORY UPDATE
In May 2018, 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.  

 

We Could Not Do It Without You!

PTA activities and initiatives could not succeed without the hard work of our volunteers. This Volunteer Shout Out goes to Laurie Vergott for coordinating the Ravensworth Chess Club this year. We appreciate all the work you put into make Chess Club a success! Thank you for volunteering.
