CORE VALUES & BELIEFS
Nathan Hale-Ray High School prepares all students to meet 21st century expectations as self-motivated, lifelong learners in a positive environment. The school collaborates with the community to promote the development of college and career ready citizens in a diverse, global society.
Four Student Council officers represented Nathan Hale-Ray High School this morning at the monthly Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce breakfast. An honor to be invited, the event was extra special because they got to meet the breakfast’s guest speaker, Governor Dan Molloy. Seniors Austin Gometz, Zachary Wright, and Allyn Sweet, along with sophomore Sarah Gieseler made us very proud as they sat amongst hundreds of Connecticut professionals.

With the changeover to Power School, parents are now able to review current grades for their students at any time during the school year. We also know, however, that not all parents have access to the internet. Therefore, in an effort to ensure you receive the information you need, please let us know if you would like to receive paper copies of Mid-Quarter grades by contacting Mrs. Friel in our Guidance department at 860-873-5065 ext. 227.
The Hale-Ray Athletic Department wishes to thank the following “soccer elves” for their great contribution recently in building a soccer shed located on the upper playing fields.
Project engineer, Rob Wright, organized a crew led by lead carpenter Mike Brothers, and ably assisted by carpenters Brian McCleary and Steve Brasile, and assistants Greg Mazzotta and Shaun Conroy.
The shed, erected in one afternoon, will provide storage for our high school teams as well as the East Haddam Soccer Club.
All the labor was provided free of charge and resulted in a great structure, functional for many uses, including fund raising purposes.
The Hale-Ray family greatly appreciates all that was done…thank you.

The RAY FFA Chapter and the East Haddam Conservation Commission
In 2010, in collaboration with the East Haddam Conservation Commission, the Ray FFA Chapter assumed stewardship of the 121 acre piece of town land known as Nichols’ Field. This land is part of East Haddam’s publicly owned open space. This project was made possible by the National FFA “Living to Serve” grant. The main focus of the Ray FFA Chapter with this project is to create a public trail system in which town residents can attain fun, physical activity in a natural and beautiful setting. The Ray FFA Chapter plans to continue stewardship of the trail system for many years to come! For more information and Trail Map: FFA Nichols Trail and Map
