Ravens Athletic Club
Dear Ravenscroft Community,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year from the Ravens Athletic Club, otherwise known as RAC! My name is Kim Mathan, and I will be president of the Ravens Athletic Club for 2018-19. My husband, Satish, and I have two children at Ravenscroft in grades seven and 10. Athletics has enhanced their experience at our school in immeasurable ways. RAC is an organization of parents from the Ravenscroft community whose purpose is to support all aspects of athletics at Ravenscroft. We achieve this through the promotion of school spirit, good sportsmanship, team support and volunteer commitment. Through funds generated from the annual Golf Classic in the spring and ongoing concessions sales at sports events, RAC is able to support all students by purchasing desired items not covered by the Athletic Department’s capital budget. Some of our contributions include a soccer field awning, the cross country entrance arch, touch pads for the swim team, weight room equipment, a pole vault pit, cheerleading competition fees, baseball field upgrades, golf bags and so much more!
We have several early fall events that you won’t want to miss! Please take note and save the dates of the following events and information:
RAC Meeting: Thursday, Sept. 20, Hall of Fame Room, 8:15 a.m.
Fan Day & Faculty/Military Appreciation Night: Friday, Sept. 21. Parade of Athletes at halftime of the football game!
Homecoming & Embrace Possibility Campaign Celebration: Friday, Oct. 5. To volunteer please contact Kim Mathan firstname.lastname@example.org
We will have MANY events throughout the year, all of which will be posted on the RAC’s page on the school website, http://www.ravenscroft.org/rac. WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS! Without your help all of these great things would not be possible. Volunteering by working a concessions or gate shift, becoming a team parent, or working at special events such as Homecoming, Athletic Award Ceremonies or the Golf Classic is a wonderful way to not only support our students but also interact with fellow parents and build lasting relationships toward a common goal: raising confident leaders of strong character. Volunteer sign-ups can be found on our RAC webpage. If you wish to just come see what we are about, we welcome all parents to attend our monthly RAC meeting, typically held the third Thursday of every month at 8:15 a.m. in the Hall of Fame Room at the A.E. Finley Center.
Welcome to Ravenscroft Athletics… GO RAVENS!
