Thank you to our volunteers and donors!

A NOTE OF THANKS

 
To all of the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, friends and neighbors who have volunteered and donated over the year to support our school community -  we salute you! 
 
There is so much love shared through all of your efforts and support.  Our school is as strong as it is today because of all of you. Your good deeds (both small and large) do not go unnoticed by all of our staff and administration at Ravenswood. We could never be who we are as a school without your partnership. Our community is what makes our school so special and truly does support the development of each child. 
 
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
 
Mr. Manaen (Principal) and 
Mrs. Welsh (Assistant Principal)
