Upcoming Important Dates

Drop Off/Pick Up Reminder

Please remember that after dropping your student off in the morning or picking up in the afternoon to exit through the middle of the parking lot. Exiting this way minimizes the congestion and speeds everything up. With the potential of winter weather this time of year we are unable to keep cones/signs out to direct people so we are relying on you to help us maintain a smooth process. Please be mindful that it is safest to drop students off in the drop off loop or to pull into a parking spot to let them out.
 


1st Grade Adventures

The first grade had Kyle from The Squam Lake Natural Science Center share a Creatures of the Night presentation. He brought an opossum, a saw-whet owl and a porcupine, and we all learned about nocturnal animals and animal adaptations.

Ray School Student Art Display

Wondering where your child's art might be?  The Mascoma Bank has been home to our annual December Art Show for many years - and it's officially back!  It's a lovely place to wander around at a less hustle and bustle pace. The show will remain up for the entire month of December.  So stop by often!
 


HAVEN HELPERS!

November and Baking Supplies have come to an end. So far, Ray Schoolers have collected over 250 pounds, with another delivery in the near future.

DECEMBER begins and so does a new FOOD ITEM – CANNED FRUIT! So keep those donations coming in. Be on the lookout for costumed friends to remind you to bring in CANNED FRUIT! Thanks to Avery and Dagny Hoppa for making the deliveries.

The most recent delivery was 98 pounds making a grand total for November of 352 pounds!

Let’s try for another TON this year!!!

Great work RAY SCHOOLERS!!!
