    Why We Teach  

    At Ray E. Kilmer Elementary, we are dedicated to educating all students, honoring their individual growth, monitoring their achievements, and celebrating their successes. We set the foundation for lifelong learning, character development and the desire to achieve.  We value the relationships with our school community and embrace a partnership of learning.  It is our goal to create a trusting and safe environment where parents are proud to send their children and students are excited to attend.
