Please fill out an online Family Survey (if you have not already).

Survey results will help our school create a more focused, intentional school improvement plan in the future. Feedback is a critical component in the school improvement process, and your perspective is extremely important to our school’s growth. I ask for your input on this survey, which should only take a few minutes to complete. The survey may be digitally accessed HERE. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Raymond Park Girls Tennis Team Tryouts Spring 2019

Coach Paul and Coach White are excited to start another tennis season at Raymond Park Middle School. Here is a quick run-down of info to know:

  • Who: All students grades 5-8

  • When: March 11th after school. Practices go until 5 PM Monday-Friday. Please pick up your student promptly at 5 PM on the south side of the school at the tennis courts.

  • Where: Students will meet after school in the cafeteria. We usually meet toward the back. Look for people with tennis racquets.

  • What to bring: Athletic clothes (gym shorts with pockets work well), athletic shoes, tennis racquet (a cheap one is fine), a good attitude, a good supply of water, and a small snack.

  • What to know: Tennis is a sport with many rules. Start getting familiar with them. All players must learn how to play the game. This is a sport that requires a level of physical fitness. Players are required to put in their best effort at physical tasks such as running laps around the track. The coaches are in no way required to admit all students onto the team.

More information will be given out on the first day of tryouts. Tryouts will be held in the week of March 11th.

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
