Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner …for January 20, 2019

Most of us will not hear the entrance antiphon today (unless, of course, you’re at the 7:30 AM mass), but it is well worth our attention.  “All the earth shall bow down before you, O God, and shall sing to you, shall sing to your name, O Most High!”  In our world today, I’m afraid that we sometimes forget whom we should honor – certainly not another human or a computer or a television or movie star.  It is God to whom we give praise and honor.  Let us pray to be conscious of that.

I want to make a conscious effort to thank everyone for your wonderful support throughout the year, but especially most recently.  Without fail, you have assisted us with all our fundraising efforts – coming to bingo, taking defensive driving, sending in Box Tops for Education, buying candy bars and GIFT CARDS (that’s a biggy!)  etc., etc.  We would be lost without you and appreciate your help.  I simply place you all in God’s hands and He will bless you for your kindness and generosity.

Today St. Raymond School is hosting our monthly HOSPITALITY SUNDAY in the cafeteria after the 9:00, 10:30 and noon masses.  We look forward to sharing some time with you as you join us for a little breakfast and camaraderie.  Of course, next Sunday, we’ll greet you all again as we begin our annual celebration of CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK!  The difference is that breakfast on the 27th is only after the 9:00 AM mass.

Let me take this opportunity to invite you all to come and visit St. Raymond School.  We are having our annual OPEN HOUSE from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM.  Students and parents will be available to give tours and answer questions about the school.  Teachers will greet families in their classrooms and I will be in the auditorium or around the building to assist in whatever way is necessary.  New families are also welcome to schedule an appointment for during the week to see the school in operation (does make a difference when the children are in session!).  Give the school a call to set up a time to visit. 

This is a schedule for the upcoming week:

  • Monday:Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; No school
  • Tuesday:Pizza day; Spirit Basketball @ St. Aidan’s at 3:30 and 4:45 PM; Parish Children Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:Band and string lessons with FULL band at 8:00 AM; Deli sandwiches; Spirit Basketball (Girls) at Our Lady of Peace; 8th Grade Parent & Student Sacramental meeting at 7:30 PM in the auditorium
  • Thursday:Bagel day; 8th Grade Math Enrichment at lunchtime; Chess Club after school; Long Island Band West practice from 5-8 in the cafeteria and auditorium
  • Friday:Hot pretzels at lunch

Remember please that the St. Raymond School annual BLOOD DRIVE is taking place on Monday, January 28th from 2:15 to 8:15 PM in the school cafeteria.  We are hoping that MANY folks will help to save some lives!  Have a great week – stay warm!
