Last June, fourth graders from Downey schools participated in the Downey Association of Realtors’ Realtor Community Relations Poster Contest, with the theme “What Home & Family Means to Me.” Five winners were chosen, and four came from St. Raymond’s School, including first place, which qualified the school to win $1,000. Each student, now in fifth grade, won $20 or $50 gift cards.

The posters are on display at the Downey City Library.
