Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for November 25, 2018


Today is the final Sunday of the liturgical year and is identified as the Feast of Christ the King.  In our society today, kings are rather foreign to us.  We all know what a king is and that they rule over people.  But Christ never claimed to be a king – at least not of this world!  Rather Christ the King rules over our hearts.  Let us pray for an openness to accept Him as our King always.

Hopefully everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving, sharing in the abundance of gifts given by our Father. As always, we at St. Raymond’s were very graced.  I especially want to thank all the good people who supported the Parish/School’s fundraising efforts at the Backwards Drawing.  The success of the event truly rested on your shoulders.  Please know that we are most appreciative of your help.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Our Spirit basketball teams, both boys’ and girls’, have started up again for the season.  They actually will begin their games this Tuesday, November 27th in our school gymnasium at 3:30 PM with St. Christopher’s.  The games will continue for the next couple of months, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon.  Please know all are welcome to attend these late afternoon games.

The upcoming week is actually rather a busy one (as if most aren’t!).  We are having auditions for the student TALENT SHOW taking place at the end of Catholic Schools Week.  The eighth graders are having their GRADUATION PHOTOS (and there are make-ups for anyone who missed the original “picture day”. Please let Mrs. Giglio know before Wednesday if your child’s picture should be taken).  There are COMPREHENSIVE EXAMS for students in 6-8 grade and the First Trimester officially ends!  Here are the particulars of the week ahead:

  • Monday:Baked ziti
  • Tuesday:Enterprise for 5 & 6; Pizza; HEPP classes for 1-4; Talent Show Auditions; Spirit Basketball with St. Christopher’s @ 3:30 PM; Parish Children’s Choir from5-6 PM in the auditorium

The PSA is once again sponsoring SANTA’S BREAKFAST on Saturday, December 1st in the school cafeteria from 9:00 AM to noon.  There will be treats, crafts and, of course, pictures with Santa.  For more information please call the school office (593-9010) and Mrs. Giglio will direct you to the right folks since reservations are required.  That same evening (Dec. 1st) the parents have received invitations to our Second Annual Christmas Cocktail Party in the school auditorium starting at 7 PM.  Again, reservations are required so that we know how many folks to expect.  Responses for the adult party are due into the main office on Monday, November 26th

Advent begins next Sunday so plan ahead to celebrate our liturgical new year!
