What is happening at Robert Gray?
Please take a moment to review the policies from the Robert Gray Student Handbook regarding dress code and our drop off/pick up procedures. These guidelines have not changed but we've noticed the need to remind families of the school policy as the weather gets warmer and spring sports schedules get more challenging.
We appreciate your efforts to minimize the impact on our school and follow the school policies. Please contact the office if you have any additional questions or clarification.

Happy Kids Parking Lot Painting
2nd grade student Marlee Harper's picture, seen at the left, was painted on the parking lot at Happy Kids Dental at 1717 Olympia Way on Saturday, May 14th.
See a couple more pictures of the painting in progress...
Robert Gray Percussion Ensembles Performance
The Robert Gray Percussion Ensembles will be performing their spring concert on Thursday, May 19th at 7 p.m. in the Robert Gray gym. The concert will feature both percussion groups and everyone is invited to see and hear some very talented kids!
The concert starts at 7 p.m., but I ask that performers arrive at 6:45 p.m. to prepare and warm up. Students performing are expected to dress nicely, just as they would for any other concert.
The performers and I would love to see a large audience, so we encourage you to bring all of your family and friends!
Smarter Balanced Assessment
It’s almost that time of year where our students get the chance to demonstrate what they have learned on our state assessments. This year, our teachers determined that testing late in the window would allow our students the opportunity to maximize their learning and teaching time to really show what they know and have the most time possible to learn before testing! See the details...
Please note the following very important dates for grade level testing:
May 18, May 25, June 1, June 7
May 17, May 19, May 26, June 2
May 17, May 19, May 26, June 2, June 7
It is critical that your student be in attendance on these days. All missed tests must be made up prior to June 10, so any absences will result in students having to test in back to back days, which is not ideal for the student.

Robert Gray Elementary seeks used books
That's why Robert Gray Elementary is conducting a book drive. The school has set a goal of gathering 2,000 gently used books, from picture books to middle school-level chapter books. They will be used by students, who will share and exchange them during a school-wide summer reading program.
If you have books to donate, please drop them off at the school by June 17, or arrange a pickup by calling 575-7301.
Together we can encourage a new generation of readers!
Robert Gray principal Kala Lougheed and a student sort books that have arrived for the school book drive. To date, the school has collected roughly 800 books.

Great Fun at Robert Gray
As a prize for our Fall Fundraiser, the students that sold a certain amount of items received up to three shots to dunk our principal, Dr. L. We had 35 students take a shot at dunking our principal! Even Dr. Zorn took a shot! It was a great event that the students and staff all enjoyed! We want to thank Dr, Lougheed, our wonderful principal for being such a great sport and getting in the dunk tank!

The Little Free Library is now open at Robert Gray!
Superintendent Dr. Dan Zorn assisted Dr. Lougheed and her family, along with Robert Gray staff, students, and families, in cutting the ribbon and officially opening the library in August. The idea of a Little Free Library is that anyone can "take a book, give a book" - or just take a book if they do not have one. Located at the stop sign near the parking lot entry, the library is regularly checked and stocked with donated reading material. Stop by and help yourselves to a good book!
