Dear Ray School Families,

We had a wonderful week of activities, including the Japanese Festival and a K/1 Spring Play. Additionally, please mark your calendar for Wednesday, May 10th, for National Walk/Bike to School Day. More details will follow in next week's Rays of Sunshine.

Japanese Festival
On April 5, the Ray School third grade students held their annual Japanese Festival.  The event is a culmination of an interdisciplinary unit that included inspiring musical performances, literary works, cultural activities, and a research project. This was a wonderful event attended by many parents, staff and Ray School alumni.





K/1 Play

Mrs. Connolly’s and Mrs. James’ classes presented their annual spring play this week. The theme this year was “Singing Through the Seasons.” The classes worked hard to create their props and practiced their parts diligently. Their hard work was apparent when they presented in front of their families.


Haven Helpers!
This is the FINAL week for 5th grade to collect for the Haven, and they have done an outstanding job. We just received word that the Haven is out of one of their staple foods -- PEANUT BUTTER! For the final stretch -- please bring in peanut butter for the Haven. Thank you for your support! 

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown!
Come see You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown this weekend at the Richmond Middle School auditorium! Kate Budney and Henry Lang, two seniors at Hanover High School, have co-produced this show as a Senior Bridges project.

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-1:00pmMonday 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:  russell.ward@rayschool.org.

Have a great weekend! 
Kevin and Lauren
