Dr. David Ray
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Lorraine Elementary School. It is our privilege as educators to partner with you, the parents, in an effort to stretch your children to their maximum potential in every subject area. At Lorraine, we are focused on learning as our essential outcome... an outcome so important, so significant, that every child must achieve it. I invite you to join us as we strive together to provide your children with the time and support necessary to reach this very important goal.
Educational research has always been clear about the extremely positive correlation between parental involvement and student achievement. In addition to working with your children at home, we invite you to also become involved by volunteering in classrooms, serving as room parents, PTO or committee officers, tutors, or assisting with a variety of programs that occur throughout the school year. Our standard of excellence is very high as our students consistently stand toe-to-toe with the very best in the state. This success is due to teamwork and an absolute commitment by the parents, the students, and the educators to settle for nothing less than the very best. It is the Lorraine way!
Thanks in advance for your commitment to work with and encourage your children during this school year.
David Ray, Ed.D.
