Principal Welcome for the 2019-2020 School Year

Dear Raye-Allen Parents and Community,


As principal of Raye-Allen Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year! We are excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways. It is our mission to inspire a culture in which students believe in themselves and take risks to grow and meet individual potential. We believe that it is our duty to inspire, empower, and engage student so they seek high expectations for themselves in order to become balanced, self-directed, life-long learners.


At Raye-Allen, we have amazing teachers who dedicate themselves to planning and creating activities to engage our students in learning. Our staff utilizes best practices and analyzes data to determine current skills and to set individual goals for growth and improvement for every child. We strive to live up to our moto “What’s best for kids”. When making decisions here at Raye-Allen, it is the question and the answer.


I am honored to serve as the principal at Raye-Allen Elementary School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of this community – where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.

Once again, welcome back to another great year!
