Dear St. Raymond School Parents, Alumni and Friends:
Summer at St. Raymond Elementary School began with a splash - literally! Summer School and Summer Camp began on June 26. Our students set to work learning and improving their academic skills, swimming, dancing, doing arts and crafts, and generally just having fun.
See below for photos of our summer activities.
Thank you again for entrusting your children to us this summer. Stay cool!
SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENTS
FOCUS ON SKILLS
Students needing or wanting additional help with their studies attended summer school. The focus was on math, reading/ELA and test preparation. Our students and teachers worked hard for the three-week summer school, which coincided with a heat wave. Luckily, the classrooms were air conditioned!

Focused and hard at work.
Success merits a smile!

SUMMER CAMP: FUN IN THE SUN -- AND INDOORS, TOO!
Seventy-five children participated in St. Raymond's Summer Camp this year. Their days were spent dancing, doing arts and crafts, playing sports and swimming, and being with their friends. Here's a taste of summer camp.
DANCING WITH OUR STARS
