Upcoming Week Specials Rotation
School Staff Appreciation Week: THANK YOU!
Thank you for all the wonderful gifts, kind words, and gestures of gratitude. We feel so fortunate to work with such a generous and thoughtful community! On Monday, we received potted bulbs and flowery masks from the PTO. We also loved the posters with messages of support from families, printed by district volunteer coordinator Emma Cottage and displayed in our front office area. On Tuesday, we enjoyed burritos and bowls from Boloco and the PTO. Wednesday brought us notes of thanks from the Hanover School Board and the SAU. On Thursday, Lou’s and the PTO provided salads and sweet treats. On Friday, we celebrated a new version of Flower Day as students wore shirts and outfits with flowers. Thank you to the PTO, the SAU, volunteer coordinator Emma Cottage, Boloco, Lou’s, and families!

Despite rain being in the forecast, we had a great turnout for Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 5th. All in all, the Ray School bike racks were full of bikes (over 50) and scooters. Thank you to all involved, including the Hanover Police Department, staff members from both Ray and RMS, students, and families. As the weather continues to get warmer and more bike riders navigate their way to and from school, please remember to bike safe and bike smart!
Reminder: Animals on Campus
Please leave pets at home or in the car if you are walking/riding to school with your students. There are signs posted around the playground and others areas to keep our areas of play clean and safe.
