Coaches' Corner

New activity calendar for May:


Field Day will once again be held on the Rasor campus. All of the games will reflect one of the Dr. Seuss book titles. Please consider volunteering your time to help make this a fun event for our students. All volunteers must complete a background check with the district prior to this day. Guests will be limited to the cafeteria for lunch with their student. Thank you for understanding and considering being a volunteer.

Please consider donating a few of your green plastic Easter eggs to the PE department for Field Day. We will use them in the "green eggs and ham" game. Thanks for sending them with your child to give to one of the coaches. We appreciate it!

Ways to Help Rasor


Rasor LOVES our volunteers. To become a volunteer you must first complete a background check. You can begin this process at - http://www.pisd.edu/about.us/partners.volunteers/index.shtml. Click on the volunteer application link to begin this process. You must complete a new background check after every July 1st for every new school year.

Box Tops

Rasor Elementary participates in the box top program. We receive 10 cents for each Box Top. If each child brought in one Box Top each week, we could earn $50 a week. That would be $1800 during the course of the year. Just think of the wonderful things PTA could do with those funds to support our students and teachers!

You can also earn Rasor even more money by signing up on the Box Tops for Education website: www.boxtops4education.com
