Very exciting happenings in and around Ray this week!!

We will attend the Shedd Aquarium next week.  We need parent chaperones to help out, as we will be trying the tour with ipads for the first time.  3 studnets will travel together with an ipad viewing the exhibits.  We would like one parent for every 2 groups.  Let us know if you can attend.

The Shedd Aqaurium is hosting overnight experiences and April 7th there are a few openings still available.  Check out their website for details on how to sign up.

The Women’s History project due at the end of the month is an exciting time for us to celebrate the powerful women who have come before us.  If your family needs help finding resources please let us know.  As questions of us as we get closer to the deadline.

There is currently a food drive in full swing at Ray.  Please donate any non parishables.  The drive ends next week.
