The mission of the Parents' Association at Ravenscroft School is to assist in the promotion of excellence for the Ravenscroft community through active parent/guardian involvement.
On behalf of the Parents’ Association (PA), we would like to welcome new and returning families to Ravenscroft for the 2017/18 school year! We encourage all parents to consider becoming involved in the PA. Parent volunteers allow us to provide the diverse array of events, fundraisers and special programs that help us to achieve our mission. Furthermore, becoming involved as a volunteer in the PA allow parents, students, faculty and staff to have fun and engage with one another while at the same time supporting the school.
Please review the 2017/18 PA Event Highlights to see upcoming volunteer opportunities and reach out to us, or any of our Steering Committee members, if you have any questions or would like to know more.
Looking forward to the year ahead!

Summer Reading Books for Rising 6th Graders Available Now!
The Ravenscroft Parents Association is once again partnering with Quail Ridge Books to provide pre-order sales for all required summer reading for 6th through 12th grade students. Pre-orders will begin on April 20 and run through May 4 with 21% of all sales benefiting Ravenscroft PA. Books will be delivered to the student’s advisory or homeroom prior to summer vacation.
Note: Since 5th graders will not know their language arts placement until this summer, parents are encouraged to purchase at least one of the required books.
Calling all cooks! Our final Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon is approaching - Tuesday, May 1. Join us to prepare “Fiesta like there is no Manana.” Please take this opportunity to show our faculty and staff how much we appreciate them! Please sign up here.
Want to hand off school supply shopping to someone else? The Parents’ Association has the answer – SchoolKidz School Supply Kit. We are celebrating our 3rd year of ordering school supplies before the year even ends. They will be delivered to your child’s homeroom/advisory on their first day of school. Save your time this summer- it couldn’t be easier.! Sale starts MONDAY May 7.
Ravens Go Local reminds us we are an integral part of our neighboring community. There are many innovative ways the PA can earn “free” money from local and national retail establishments such as Harris Teeter, Office Depot and Target. Ravens Go Local secures discounts from retailers for school use and works to secure lunches for staff during conference lunches. Volunteers research programs that donate money and gifts back to Ravenscroft. Volunteers also help develop creative ways to register parents, friends and family for these programs, so the school will earn the maximum benefit from these community dollars! For questions, contact Behnaz Atree, Jen Corigliano or Karen Taber.
