Welcome to the spring semester! My name is Fran Smetana and I am honored to be the interim principal at Raye-Allen Elementary School. This is my sixth year with Temple ISD and I have been on Raye-Allen’s campus many times. I have already had the fabulous opportunity to work closely with the Raye-Allen staff prior to the Winter Break. Every person on this team is obviously dedicated to the success of each student on campus. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with the team here at Raye-Allen to help to continue to provide an excellent education for every child. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this of the journey with your child.
I look forward to meeting you as parents and Guardians here at Raye-Allen as I join with you in promoting your child‘s success. Our continued goal will be to provide a safe educational environment that will lead every child to his or her potential. I encourage you to be an active part of your child’s education. Please check our campus calendar for events and updates, and be sure to let us know if you change your contact information so that we can stay connected. Together, we can achieve the goal of academic excellence!
