Warmest Winter Wishes to all of you!!!

This week is “Spirit Week” There are themes for each day, bu the most important of these is Friday Ray Swag Day!!! Please consider purchasing a Ray T or sweatshirt if you have not already done so. The proceeds help to support the Ray School PTA.

Our home assignments and daily schedule will be the same as usual this week. It is so important for the children to have this consistency. Often at this time students experience a higher level of anxiety due to the uncertainty that the lack of structure of a long break from school brings on. Please be patient with your second grader and consider offering a daily routine that will offer predictability in routine for them during your break.

Please be sure to read and write a little each day during the break. Also practice those addition and subtraction facts often.
