Greetings From Our Principal!
Greetings, Raymore Tigers! Each day I have the privilege of serving you as the principal of our great school where approximately 600 wonderful EC-4th grade students learn and grow. With a team of nearly 75 amazing and talented staff, we daily live out our mission of preparing each child for a successful and meaningful life and strive to realize our vision of turning today's learners into tomorrow's leaders!
I've been in education for 17 years, primarily at the elementary level but spanning preschool through adult education. I have certifications in elementary and secondary administration, ESL, Spanish and teaching. A graduate of Mizzou (Go Tigers!), I am also an alumni of SEMO and Baker University. I love what I do, and can promise I will do whatever it takes to help your child learn and grow and to support their amazing teachers and staff as they help them reach their goals each and every day. I value our parents and patrons as priceless partners in our children's education. Together, what a wonderful learning community we are for our kids! Here's to making each day count.
Wishing you well,
Michelle Hofmann, Principal
Due to ongoing improvements to the TeacherEase online gradebook site, access to the parent portion of our new gradebook will not be ready for release by September 15th. We apologize for the delay, but we are working directly with TeacherEase in order to provide a high quality product that meets the needs of our district. We are hopeful all upgrades will be complete by mid-October. More information will be provided as soon as it is available. Thank you for your patience, and we are excited about being able to offer parents greater access to their child's learning. Please feel free to contact your child's teacher with specific questions concerning their progress.
