PTA Announcements 

Ralston’s PTA Parent Education Event -- Mark Your Calendar!
Join us for an informative evening with guest speaker, Mary Hofstedt, from Challenge Success! Mary will be delivering the "Well-Balanced Student" presentation on Monday, March 25, 2019 from 6:30–8pm in the MUR.
This event is open to all members of our BRSSD parent community.  
Summary of presentation:  When we are too focused on grades and performance, we deny our children time and energy they need to tackle the demanding work of growing up. In this presentation, you'll learn how you can establish a healthier home environment, reduce academic stress without sacrificing achievement and increase your children's resilience, creativity, and well being. 
For more information and to RSVP, please click here. A flyer is attached.

California School Parent Survey, 2018-2019
Our school needs you to complete this online survey to learn more about your opinions about your child's school. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, and improve student achievement.  If you have questions, contact Beth Boldt, BRSSD Health and Wellness Educator.
