Welcome to Mary Raber Elementary
Here we develop the skills and knowledge of all children so they can become lifelong and responsible learners. The core values we instill in children include 'treat people right and to do the right thing’. Mary Raber administrators, teachers and staff are dedicated to nurturing and encouraging all students to reach their academic potential through research-based and data-driven, engaging instruction. We have a wealth of special programs to enhance the curriculum as well as free Family Fun Nights hosted by our Parents Involved in Education (PIE). We’re also fortunate to have the district’s only integrated preschool, a program that begins at age 3.
A FINAL FAREWELL
It’s with a heavy heart we must announce the planned goodbye celebration honoring the 1958 Columbia City High School will no longer be taking place, nor will the event be rescheduled.
Even though this is not how we wanted to say our final goodbye, our community can still remember the old high school and smile.
Because what Columbia City High School leaves behind is not what’s engraved in the building’s walls. It’s the memories woven in the hearts and souls of those whose lives it touched. And, how wonderful it is that its legacy connects us forever.
Farewell old friend, you served us well.
Device Protection Plan
Students will have the option to enroll in a Device Protection Plan for the 2019-2020 school year. The optional Device Protection Plan costs $20. Participation in the plan protects school-issued student Chromebooks against ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE, FIRE, FLOOD, NATURAL DISASTERS, POWER SURGE, VANDALISM, MECHANICAL FAILURE and MANUFACTURER DEFECTS. This plan will provide full replacement cost coverage (does not include chargers or cases) and will protect devices on and off school grounds. The plan is limited to three claims. Parents will be responsible for all costs related to incidents beyond the third claim. The plan is also transferable to a replacement unit. All repairs regardless of participation in the Device Protection Plan must be handled by the WCCS Technology Department.
