START THE SENIORS DAY
WITH A GOOD BREAKFAST
We parents all know that kids should start their day off right with a good breakfast. Please help RABC send the seniors off with a good breakfast on their Walk-Out Day on May 18th. We will be cooking and serving pancakes, eggs, sausage, milk and juice. Would you like to volunteer or donate ingredients? Please sign-up at Senior Breakfast Sign-Up.
STEPHANIE BOGRETT-GOULD SCHOLARSHIP
Each year, RABC is proud to award the Stephanie Bogrett-Gould Scholarship (whose focus is volunteerism) to a deserving Silver Creek Senior. Stephanie, who passed away unexpectedly in December 2015 but will never be forgotten, exemplified the spirit of volunteerism that is the focus of RABC. She was a key volunteer for RABC and the Football Program. Stephanie was also the rock star behind our Dancing with the Silver Creek Stars fundraiser (the funds for this scholarship are raised through this event). Please encourage any Silver Creek senior you know who consistently gives back to his/her school, community and world to apply (Stephanie Bogrett-Gould Scholarship Application).
GRADUATION CONCESSIONS VOLUNTEERS
Graduation Day is going to be warm and sunny, so the attendees will need cold drinks, OR, it is going to be cold and rainy and attendees will need hot chocolate and coffee. Either way, we need a few good volunteers to help in the Concessions Booth from 8 AM to 11:30 AM on Saturday, May 26, 2018. Please contact SCCONCESSIONS01@GMAIL.COM.
Want to get more involved and have a greater voice in how RABC supports sports, activities and the community at Silver Creek? The President and either Vice-President or Secretary positions are open on next year’s Board. Descriptions of the responsibilities for each of these positions can be found in the RABC By-Laws. Interested? Please contact email@example.com.
We are also looking for a few motivated people who know how to throw a party to help us plan the Homecoming Parade and Tailgate on September 14, 2018. It’s never too early to start organizing! Interested? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION
Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass. In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD. Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.
Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year. This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus. This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.
Please open the following link for more important bus information.

Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus

New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.
