Welcome to a New School Year!

Welcome to the Crew 132 Website!

My name is Mary Anne Raymond and this is my tenth year teaching Kindergarten.  I think that Kindergarten is the most fabulous place to be and it is definitely the place for me!  I hope that you and your child will feel the same as we journey through this wonderous school year.  Along the journey, we will work hard, respect others as well as ourselves and have lots of fun along the way.  So, buckle up and enjoy the ride!
