Meet the Candidates Forum


School Board Update

The School Board will be holding a meeting this Wednesday evening.  At that meeting, students will be talking about Project Safeguard, along with some representatives from Raymond Coalition for Youth.  Following that, the Board will be looking at the proposed high school schedule for next year and the 2017-18 Program of Studies. They’ll also be considering the Certification of Completion option for certain students to fulfill their graduation requirements. Next, the Board will be looking at the 2017-18 academic calendar, and then will be discussing meeting dates in March.

The Policy Committee will be meeting tomorrow morning to review policies from the latest New Hampshire School Boards Association Policy Update, as well as some district policies.  Any revisions or new policies that the Policy Committee recommends will go to the School Board for two readings before adoption.

A quorum of the Board is expected to be at the “Meet the Candidates” forum on Thursday evening and a meeting following the forum has been posted.

And, of course, our School District Deliberative Session is this Saturday morning, February 4th, at 10:00 AM at RHS.

Deliberative Session

We have a lot of information available about our warrant articles.  We’ve posted our warrant, budget, and default budget on our Voter Information web page, along with links to PowerPoint and video presentations, letters from the School Board and the Superintendent, and the January edition of News From the Hill.

Upcoming Changes to My Learning Plan

We’ll be revising the Reflection Form in My Learning Plan so that the first few questions will be moved to the request form itself.  These questions really should be submitted as part of the activity request before the activity happens.  You’ll be notified when we’ve made that change.  If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Heywood at the SAU.

Ramguin Sightingramguin-used-1-30-17

If you don’t already know, this is a Ramguin – part Ram (for our Raymond Rams) and part Penguin (for the Penguin Plunge).

The team of students, who have raised over $9,600 so far, will be plunging this Saturday.  Good luck!

RHS Indoor Track Record

At UNH on Sunday, January 22, 2017, Raymond High School seniors Jacob Riley, Cache Furmanick, and Garrity Sargent, and junior Gavin Call combined for a 4x400m relay time of 4:11.84, which is the team’s best of the season.

In the girls 1500-meters, Anna Harmon ran a time of 4:48.54, breaking by 9 seconds the school record she set last year.  Her effort was all the more interesting because of the odd circumstance of her being the only entry in that particular event after other entries had scratched.  She set the new record running the event alone.

The same runners will compete in one more meet at UNH this weekend, with the state Meet scheduled for Sunday, February  5th at Dartmouth.
