Dear Ray School Families,
We hope you enjoyed the snow and a day off with your children. Our week has been busy, getting back to routines, learning, and fun! Though the snow is beautiful and makes for fun winter playtime during recess, we are certainly hoping to see spring soon. Thank you to those that were able to come in for parent conferences this week and last week. We enjoy seeing the school full of Ray School families! Please enjoy the weekend and we will get back to our normal schedule on Monday!
Our 5th graders collaborated to choreograph and practice fabulous tumbling routines. Here are a few pictures from the Tumbling Show!
Yesterday we sent out a survey to let us know if your child(ren) will be returning to the Ray School or transitioning on to RMS in the fall. So many of you have already responded, but if you did not receive the email you can find the survey here. Thank you for taking the time to complete this as it is very helpful in our placement process.

Summer Social Skills Camp Coyote 2017
We are proud to announce that we will be offering Camp Coyote again this summer at the Ray School. Campers will be organized into small groups by age while learning and practicing social skills utilizing the Michelle Winner Social Thinking program through play and structured activities. Camp Coyote is focused on social skill development and more highly structured, positive social interactions with peers, but is not an academic program. Students eligible are rising kindergartners through sixth graders with a range of social skill abilities. We begin each morning with community building activities and have structured activities, games, and trips to Storrs Pond recreation area. Camp will be held from 9:00am-1:00pm, Monday through Thursday from July 10th - August 3rd at the Ray School. For students who haven't attended Camp Coyote in the past, we do require a two week minimum enrollment. For students who have participated in the past, they can sign up in weekly increments. The cost is $170.00 per week for students who attend the Ray School and Camp Coyote is not part of their extended school year services. Registration closes on April 30th. If you have any questions or would like to register your child, please contact Russell Ward: firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on Monday!
Kevin and Lauren
