Raven Stream will once again be participating in the Holiday Sharing program. This program helps students experience sharing with others less fortunate than themselves. The suggested donation is $3 per students or what the individual family chooses. Donations should be brought to school by Wednesday, November 22. Thank you for your support!

We had students from Youth Teaching Youth come into our classrooms to discuss using the internet safely and correctly. This week they talked about online communication and etiquette. Next week the focus will be on internet safety, and the following week the focus will be cyberbullying. This is a great opportunity for our students to hear the importance of internet safety from high school students.

Due to the short week next week, there won’t be a newsletter. Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels! Enjoy the time with family and friends!
