A Word From Our Principal
Greetings, Raymore Learning Community! Each day I have the privilege of serving as the principal of more than 600 wonderful EC-4th Grade students and a team of amazing and talented staff who daily live out our mission of preparing each child for a successful and meaningful life! Partnering with my staff, parents, students, and community, we strive each day to realize our vision of turning today's learners into tomorrow's leaders!
It is my hope that this ever-evolving site will be a helpful way to communicate and partner with each of our wonderful families.
