Welcome to
Rawson Elementary School


Live every day the Rawson Way!

I am Responsible.
I am Respectful.
I am Safe.


Congratulations to Rawson's Wolf of the Week Winners!

Wolf of the Week is an internal school award which celebrates the demonstration of positive character traits by our Rawson students. For the 2020-2021 school year, our awesome Rawson specialists will be selecting one student per week who have continually demonstrated the SM Way Character Traits of honesty, kindness, perseverance, responsibility, and respect.

(Please keep in mind, these winners are not an exhaustive list. We have many children who consistently demonstrate strong character throughout their school day!)
