The TRS Class of 2012 gathered on campus this past Monday for a reunion dinner. Students and parents enjoyed reconnecting and catching up. Wish them luck as they finish their high school years and embark on the next chapter of their lives. #trscommunity #trsalumni #trsclass2012
Here's a snapshot of the most recent photos taken by parents and teachers showing a little about daily life at The Raleigh School.
Our third graders in Mr. Sather's class honor the class theme of community by inviting their Growing Together Preschool friends to The Raleigh School for a Thanksgiving feast. Leading up to the feast, the third graders design several Thanksgiving themed crafts to teach their preschool buddies. This week these new friends enjoyed time together as they made crafts and sat down for a Thanksgiving meal prepared by the third grade parents. A heartwarming tradition, familiar faces such as Ted Storck returned to campus for the event, helping with the roasting of turkeys and serving of the food.
We are now accepting new enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year with a first round application deadline of January 11, 2019. Experiencing our teachers interacting in the classroom and on campus is the best way to understand our school. We strongly encourage prospective parents to visit our school on one of our preschool or elementary tours. Book your tour here or sign up to attend our Elementary Open House on November 14, 2018.
One of the things our families love about our school is that it's small with just 160 preschool and 264 elementary students. It does present a challenge for newcomers though, with limited openings for new students. If you decide The Raleigh School might be a good fit for your child, our best advice to you is apply early! Be sure to submit your child's completed application along with all supporting documentation before January 19, 2019 as most new children are placed from our first round of applicants. Find out more about our admissions process.
Sunday was the perfect hot day for ice cream, freeze pops and cold water. What a treat to see so many students, teachers, parents, and alumni at our first annual Sundae Social. It was a sweet celebration to kick-off the new school year! #TRSCommunity
The Raleigh School recently welcomed our Head of School for the 2018-19 school year, Anne Bryan. Anne has a long history with TRS, her family having joined our community in 1988. She was one of the founders of our elementary school and served in various leadership roles over the years, including chairing the Board.
Anne's career and lifelong passion have centered on creating and sustaining opportunities for children. She has worked with the NC Department of Public Instruction; co-founded and was president and CEO of Exploris (now Marbles) and Executive Head of Exploris Middle School (now The Exploris School); and served as Senior Policy Advisor to Gov. Bev Perdue where she focused on children's issues.
Anne is looking forward to having our students back on campus and to enjoying a great year ahead with The Raleigh School community.
