Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for September 17, 2017


This third week of September finds our St. Raymond School Family in the “swing of things”.  Parents have met the teachers and been told of the expectations for the children for this year of JOY.  The students themselves have run through the daily schedule, met the new teachers, and joyfully started the new academic year.

I want to especially thank all those who generously contributed to our first DRESS DOWN FOR CHARITY event last week.  Having lived through Superstorm Sandy, most of us are very familiar with the devastation that wind and water can cause.  Imagine being hit with a major category 4 or 5 hurricane with sustained winds over 150 mph!  All of our donations will be sent to the victims of the hurricanes through the Education Departments of the dioceses involved.  God help them all.

I also want to remind all 8th grade parents that it would be good to schedule an appointment with me to discuss choice for high school for your child.  Open houses for the various high schools have already begun and our annual HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION NIGHT is scheduled for Thursday, September 28th.  Students need to have an idea about the various schools before they take the entrance exam at the end of October.

In planning for the next couple of weeks, please be aware that the school will be hosting FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT on Friday, September 22nd at 6:30 PM in the school auditorium (children can come in pjs with pillows and blankets) and an ADULT BINGO on Saturday, September 30th in the school cafeteria.  Check our website for more information.

Here’s a look at the week ahead:

  • Monday:  Baked ziti at lunch; Student Council meeting at lunchtime
  • Tuesday:  Deli sandwiches; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the school auditorium
  • Wednesday:  Band lessons begin; Pizza day
  • Thursday:  Bagel day
  • Friday:  Hot pretzels at lunch; FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT

Now changing to my “IHM bonnet”, I want to remind everyone that it’s that time of year when the IHM Congregation is running its largest fundraising effort to support the ongoing needs of our retired sisters.  Each year I ask you to consider taking an IHM Silver Circle membership for $25 which lets you participate in monthly drawings for cash prizes ranging from $50 to $1000 from October 2017 to June 2018.  Since I am getting closer to that “retirement” myself, this cause is extremely important to me.  If you’re interested, please complete the form and return it to me with a check to “Sisters of IHM” at the convent, school or rectory.  As always, I am most grateful to you all.  God bless.

Sister Ruthanne
