Principal Cristina Centeno

Dear Raymond Families,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to the 2022-2023 school year!

With the amount of hard work and dedication put toward the previous school year, I hope everyone had a restful and memorable summer. I spent a great deal of time reflecting on how fortunate I am to be part of a community that cares so deeply about student success and well being. It only made me more excited to get this new school year started. We have so many awaited victories in store for us!

I am excited to share that we will have an Assistant Principal this year. This position will be filled by our own very cherished teacher, Mrs. Julianne Ettinger. Mrs. Ettinger has been a teacher at Raymond for 13 years. She is the perfect fit to ensure student safety and overall happiness!

Although we strive to recuperate the loss that the pandemic has brought us these past years, the physical and mental health of every child will always be my primary concern. We will continue extensive safety procedures and protocols to maintain a safe and healthy learning environment for all our staff and students.

I look forward to seeing you and hearing all about the great memories you made this summer. Please feel free to contact me for any questions or concerns. As your proud principal, I am always here for you and your family.
