Welcome to an exciting year at Ray. We hope everyone is having a relaxing and fun-filled summer. We are looking forward to the upcoming school year and can’t wait to get to know all of our new students and families!

We are eager to begin working with each student and their family to create an awesome learning environment that attends to the needs of the 1st grade student. Students will be encouraged to participate fully in class projects, field trips and cooperative grouping/discussions. In addition, this milestone year will provide opportunities for each student to become a more responsible, organized and independent individual.

Parents–starting on the first day of school please help your child get organized. Each day, set aside a time to encourage your child to unpack his/her backpack and take-home folder. Students will have homework nightly Monday-Thursday and are encouraged to read or be read to daily. Please check for important notices and updates from the school and teachers. Beginning the first week of school, you will receive a weekly overview describing areas of study and upcoming events. You can also visit the individual classroom blogs for weekly updates and helpful resources. Communication is essential. Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher by email or phone. We welcome your thoughts and questions and look forward to making first grade a successful year for your child.
