Dear Ray School Families,
We have had a fabulous first few days of school. The Ray School Staff is excited to have our students back in the building. Our days have been filled with celebrations, exploration, and the sounds of joyful learning happening around the building. Thanks to the PTO for all their support welcoming new families to the Ray School and for the wonderful Ray School t-shirts that were provided to the staff.
Thank you for your help in ensuring that our morning drop off is safe and efficient. Our first few days have been very successful in getting students into the building for learning time. As a reminder, please maintain a slow speed and pull all the way around the drop off loop before your child exits the car from the right side onto the sidewalk. Additionally, if you are parking, please make sure you are using a marked parking spot and not blocking other vehicles. This is a work in progress, but it is certainly headed in the right direction!
We wanted to share with you a snapshot of what has been happening around the school this week.
This year the Ray School with be sharing a therapy dog, Sawyer, a five-month-old Goldendoodle, with RMS. While Sawyer is at Ray School, he will spend most of his time with Karen Strickland in Karen’s office area. Sawyer is available to be used by any of the service providers in that area. Sawyer will be on a leash at all times and with an adult. If you have a questions or concerns please contact Kevin Cotter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sargent Bates stopped by the school this week. He asked us to remind the community about Reservoir Road. The speed limit is always 25 mph, in the school zone it is 20 mph, and in the parking lot it is 10 mph. The Hanover Police Department will be present in our area to ensure student and family safety.
Have a wonderful weekend and we will see you on Tuesday!
Kevin Cotter and Lauren Amrhein
