Volunteer at Rahn
Looking for a meaningful way to spend your day? Look no further. Volunteering at Rahn is a great way to spend your day! Working in the media center, listening to kids read, or just helping out in the office are all little things you can do to help that make our school an even better place! So if you are looking for your next opportunity, look below and follow the links if you would like to sign up! If you have any questions please contact Amber Christman, Volunteer Coordinator, email@example.com.
All of your hours count- in so many ways, and we like to keep track of the amount of volunteer hours going into our school, so please remember to log your volunteer hours!
Every Tuesday a volunteer message goes out via school messenger with our most up to date volunteer needs. This will include all the sign-up links. Please check in with the office to make sure you are receiving these messages, and all other school messenger messages.

Rahn Yearbook Pictures—Calling on our school photographers!
Did you capture some great photos at an assembly, on a field trip, or in the classroom? The yearbook relies on our Rahn community to help us capture all those wonderful memories. Please consider sharing your photos with the yearbook by uploading them to community.lifetouch.com. You will be asked to enter your name, email and to create a password. Enter the code: DXTLXN.
Remember all photos must be full resolution (some phones may say “Original Size”) but no larger than 10 MB. While traditional cameras typically have the best results for printing, many cell phones now have greatly improved the quality of their camera and can also be used. Please include a label with your photo (example: 3rd grade party, Band Concert, Student Council, Character Counts, etc). Note: photos that are too small of a file size (typically under 2 MB) cannot be used, as they are too pixelated for printing.
The community upload folder can only hold 60 images at a time and needs to be emptied by a yearbook volunteer, on a routine basis. If the folder is full, please, try your upload again at a later date. Upload only your very best images and typically only a few from any one event. While every effort is made to include as many photos as possible in the yearbook, it will be determined by the yearbook staff which photos will be in the final book.
Join the Rahn Yearbook Staff!
The Yearbook needs your help! Creating the Rahn Yearbook is a very big job made up of many small tasks. While we are always looking for photographers to help capture all the events that happen at Rahn, we are also in need of people to help work online to build the pages and organize photos, help with the Yearbook Cover Contest, help with Lifetouch picture days, and selling the books the last week of school. Some tasks require people to be at the school, while others can be done at home, on your computer. If you are interested in volunteering with the yearbook please contact the Yearbook Advisor, Joey Pederson at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Looking to help out, but unable to give your time? Rahn Elementary PTO would love to receive your donation at GiveMN.org. Remember every little bit counts! What better way to "ignite generosity and grow giving"? GiveMN Rahn PTO.
Support Rahn the 2nd week of every month
The 2nd Tuesday is our new Rahn McDonald's night from 4-7:30 pm! Come on down to the McDonald's off of Nicols Rd, say you are with "Rahn Elementary" and 15% of your purchase will go to the Rahn PTO! Also, if you come inside to visit with other Rahn students and staff, there will be coloring sheets with a coupon for a free Happy Meal, on your next visit. Plan a playdate with your friends and head over to McDonald's every 2nd Tuesday to support your school! **Remember you must tell the cashier that you are with "Rahn Elementary" for the school to benefit.**
Fill Up for Rahn
The 2nd Thursday of every month is "Fill up for Rahn," at the BP gas station off Nichols and Diffley Rd. All day long, Rahn gets 5¢ of every gallon of gasoline sold! You don't even have to mention Rahn.
This year in order to comply with district policies, as a new security measure, we are going to need parents volunteering with students one on one, or in small group settings and parents going on field trips to complete a background check. The cost will be covered and you will only need to complete it once, then we will have you on file. So if you are planning to volunteer please take a quick moment to complete a background check. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Amber Christman.
