Ray-Pec Parent Community,

I know from speaking with many of you in carlines and other impromptu conversations that there are many feelings of gratitude and appreciation for the work of our teachers, other certified professionals, principals/leaders, and support staff thus far in the 2020-21 school year. I love the way our community cares for our schools. As a way to show support and appreciation of our outstanding staff at all of our buildings and in ViPR, the Raymore-Peculiar Public School Foundation and Ray-Pec Cares recently embarked on an initiative to “adopt” a Ray-Pec staff member. Through the Neighbors Supporting Educators initiative, Ray-Pec Cares is seeking individuals, businesses, and organizations to "adopt" one or more Ray-Pec staff members for the 2020-2021 school year. People who volunteer to be a part of the Neighbors Supporting Educators initiative are asked to write encouraging notes or emails to adopted staff members throughout the school year. To date, over 300 of our staff members have been adopted by our community members. We have many others available for adoption, specifically at the middle and high school levels. Please consider becoming a partner in this initiative.

As you know, our wonderful school staff is pouring a lot of love and work into a very challenging school year. Please consider joining the Neighbors Supporting Educators effort and show them your appreciation: https://tinyurl.com/y5ea4jvl.

Thank you for your consideration in partnering in this initiative, and thank you for entrusting your children to the Ray-Pec School District.
