We did it!!

By now you've heard the news - Kramer Elementary is now an International Baccalaureate World School!!! Congratulations to Ms. West, the entire Kramer staff, and of course, our students, for this wonderful accomplishment! We are so excited to see how this learning program will continue to develop our children to think critically, express themselves confidently, and work with others to make this a better world for everyone!

Get your IB T-shirt online!

Celebrate Kramer becoming an official IB World School with our fall 2017 tee shirt. Show your Kramer pride in this ultra soft, grass green, tri-blend tee. All Kramer shirts can be worn on Fridays for Spirit Day, so this tee is sure to get plenty of wear. Modern sizing runs a little slim, so consider sizing up for a roomier fit. Pre-orders are being taken until September 29th and delivery will be the first week of October.
