The Raymond High School Band has been selected as a semi-finalist for a GRAMMY Signature award. There are a total of 50 high schools in the country that have been identified as semi-finalists. The award is designed to honor "exceptional public high school music programs across the country" with cash awards up to $6,000.
The winners will be announced in April.
This 8-minute video gives some good insights into the modern school system. Of course our state's schools aren't perfect, but Raymond School District is proud to be a part of a system that has so many good things going on.
We need your help. As you know, this year we are serving breakfast and lunch to all children free of charge, regardless of income and without requiring a lot of paperwork be completed. However there are several state and federal programs that still require some measurement of family income level.
We have mailed a very simple-to-complete "Family Income Survey" to those we think might be able to help. If your household income is within the amounts shown on the form, it will GREATLY help us if you complete and return that form to your school office by 30 October.
Thank you for your support.
