Parent Engagement Survey - We need your input!!

House Bill 5 was passed by the Texas Legislature in 2013 and includes the Community and Student Engagement Accountability System (CSEAS). This system assigns schools and districts an accountability rating based on the measurement of several campus programs. One component of CSEAS is a Parental Engagement Survey. The brief survey is made up of 10 questions, and allows us to receive feedback from parents/guardians of children who attend our school. Results will be taken into account when determining a campus rating for CSEAS.

We would appreciate your feedback on the Parental Engagement Survey. The survey can be completed by following this link:


o Once you're at the appropriate place, make sure to select "Rasor" in the dropdown menu of school choices.

o All surveys should be completed by May 15, 2015.

Thank you for your time and your support of Rasor Elementary!

Art To Remember Fundraiser:

Your child will be bring home a pamphlet from a company called ART TO REMEMBER. Through this company we will be helping to fundraise for the Rasor PTA. How do you help? Simply take a look at your child’s artwork on the front of your pamphlet and then look at the products they offer. What’s so cool about this? YOUR CHILD’s ARTWORK will be printed on the products you purchase as a wonderful keepsake! If you are interested in purchasing something complete the order form or online order by FRIDAY and a portion of the profit will be sent back to RASOR PTA!

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
