Ranger News: Week of May 4, 2020
From the Principal
The week of May 4 is National Teacher Appreciation Week. I hope you will join me in thanking the Ranger Staff for all that they do to make RP a special school!
Registration for Kindergarten and Preschool in Warren Township begins on Monday, May 4th. There will be a live webinar May 4th at 7pm. Principals and teachers will present information about Kindergarten and Preschool programs in Warren, demonstrate information about how to register online, and conduct a live question & answer session with audience members. Children must be age 5 on or before September 1 to register for Kindergarten and age 3 on or before September 1 to register for Preschool. Additional kindergarten and preschool registration information may be found on this information flyer.
Students were set to receive their term 3 report cards on the first day that Covid-19 kept students at home. Parents may access Tyler Student Information System to see grades. Though some time has passed, I want to recognize those students that earned the 3rd term honor roll - Congratulations, students! A-Honor Roll status is earned with letter grades of all "A" grades with no more that 1 "B" grade. A/B-Honor Roll status is earned with letter grades of all "A" and "B" grades with no more that 1 "C" grade.
Students who are excelling at Learn at Home activities are also deserving of recognition. Teachers nominated students who were most engaged during the week of April 27. Congratulations to our first installment of Learn at Home ALL STARS!
This is a big week for 2020-2021 scheduling:
* Those returning to Raymond Park in grades 6-8 next year will have a related arts scheduling form sent to them this week by their counselor that will allow students to preference the related arts portion of their schedule next year. Related arts course information may be found below this section.
*Those moving on to WCHS next year will have the opportunity to register for summer school physical education. Summer PE will be online and free! Spots are limited, so current 8th grade students who are interested should be ready to receive an email from Dr. Kleine at 8:00am on Monday morning that will contain the digital registration form link.

Congratulations Noah Hess
Noah Hess 6th grade participated in the National PTA "reflections program" sponsored by our PTSA. His music composition was sent off to the Indiana PTA for their level of competition.
Noah won the highest award in Indiana, outstanding interpretation, which is only awarded to one artist in every age group for his music competition!
Our PTA presented Noah with a $25 gift certificate to Jockamo's Upper Crust Pizza.
