Welcome to Raymond Park Intermediate Academy, home of the Pumas! We are so grateful for the opportunity to support your student’s educational journey in 5th and 6th grade.
We are so excited for the opportunities awaiting our students. RPIA has a tradition of excellence that we are determined to build on this year. Our dedicated staff members are committed to ensuring that we engage all of our students in a positive schooling experience focused on individual growth and improvement. While we strive to encourage the academic development of our students based on the Indiana Academic Standards for College and Career Readiness, we also value the importance of our students’ social and emotional growth. We model and practice the CORE characteristics of Civility, Order, Respect, and Excellence every day. Our students learn about these traits in order to help them become responsible, contributing citizens in the 21st century.
Our school and district have launched an initiative to personalize learning experiences for students; in other words, RPIA teachers and staff members do whatever it takes to provide individualized opportunities for students based on positive relationships.
Lastly, I hope you will consider joining our PTSA - a committed group of RPIA parents, always working to enhance the experiences of our students. The PTSA sponsors various events throughout the year to provide students with fun, safe activities both during and outside of school hours. Our PTSA does a fantastic job of connecting parents, teachers, and students at our school, and we are always eager to welcome new members!
We hope you are as excited about this school year as we are. I am so proud to serve as the principal of such a successful, distinguished school in Warren Township. We look forward to meeting you, working with you, and supporting your student throughout this year! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any other staff member if you have questions or if we can be of assistance to you! Our theme for this year is “Success: Create Yours” which we will use to motivate students to grow and achieve in all areas. We are glad you’re a part of the RPIA family, where “Our success is defined by our indomitable will!”
