Dear Ray School Families,
While the students and staff of the Ray School are always busy, this time of year is particularly exciting! There is a hum in hallways as students work on completing various cross-curricular projects to show their learning. The inside of school is bright and vibrant as we wait for spring sunshine outside!
Last night, the fifth grade students presented a wide variety of activities that demonstrated their learning over the course of this year. There were recorder, clarinet and saxophone recitals, animal inquiry paintings, Spanish autobiographies, and classroom readings to friends and families. This Open House was a wonderful example of students' abilities to perform and present. Thank you, fifth grade staff and students!
H6 & H7 Bus Route Changes
Effective Monday, April 3rd, there will be a few changes on buses H6 and H7. The SAU Business Administrator, Town of Hanover, and bus company decided to make these changes in the best interest of the students being picked up after recent traffic events in the Lebanon Street bus stop area. Please review this letter for more detailed information.

RAY ART at The Howe Library
For the month of April, the Howe Library will be displaying Ray School Art Work! Art from kindergarten, first grade, and second grade will be on display for the entire month. Make sure to stop by!
Our number of tardies has increased substantially over the last couple of weeks. It is incredibly important that students arrive on time and are in the classroom by 8:00am. Please support your child's timely arrival at school.
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: email@example.com.
Have a great weekend!
Kevin and Lauren
