Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I am Mrs. Krista Douglass, and I am honored to lead Raymond Brandes School 65 as your Principal. This school has a unique culture and a supportive community, and I am so lucky to be a part of it.

Raymond Brandes Elementary is full of tremendously talented students and exceptionally dedicated faculty and staff. We look forward to joining parents and guardians in creating and maintaining an all-inclusive school environment where students will grow through continued support from home. Our mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes academic excellence for all students. We understand that we cannot fulfill this task in isolation and look forward to a great year of collaboration with families.

This year, students will be taught to live The Bulldog Way. It is expected that students will be respectful, be responsible, be safe, and try their best at all times. We will hold students to a high standard academically and behaviorally, and I can’t wait to see the growth that our students will make. My hope is that you will support these same values at home.

Please be sure that your child arrives to school each day on time, dressed for success in compliance with the district uniform policy and prepared with all materials and tools needed for learning.  We look forward to another great year!


Krista Douglass
