Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
Raymond School is a TK - 6th-grade elementary STEAM school (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). We inspire children to become launching agents of change and use their Communication, Creative and Innovative skills to flourish in a language rich global society. We surround our children with a balanced educational approach within a safe and nurturing environment that ensures growth, both academically and socially, for every student every grade and in every subject.
Raymond is a community-based TK thru 6th-grade elementary school with a 1:1 iPad Program in Grades K-6th, and two additional kinder, first-grade and second-grade classrooms that host our district's Dual Language Immersion Program named The Dual Language Academy. Raymond's total student enrollment is expected to reach, this school year, about 550 students in 18 classrooms, six of these classrooms being the Dual Immersion.
The Dual Language Academy is a strand within our school that provides an additional choice program for kindergarten, 1st-grade & 2nd-grade students. This Dual Language Immersion program is a unique educational model where children learn to read, write, speak and communicate in two languages: English & Spanish. Native speakers of both languages learn together beginning in Kindergarten and grade levels are added each subsequent school year up to grade 6 at Raymond and to grade 8 in our district. Raymond is so happy to be a part of the fastest growing language program in the country.
Parents often ask "How can I help." Become involved in the child's classroom and school and check website weekly for updates. Talk to the teacher and ask questions to ensure that both teacher and parent strive to be a united bond that helps guide the child as needed. Parents, please attend all school events and lend a helping hand whenever possible.
Every adult on campus ensures a safe and secure learning environment and are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children.
