Welcome to St. Raymond School

Celebrating 90 Years of




Please be reminded that the St. Raymond Parish Dinner Dance honoring the 90th Anniversary of St. Raymond School  is quickly approaching.  The affair is being held on Friday evening, April 28th  at the Coral House in Baldwin from 6:30 to 11:30 PM.  This is definitely a celebration that we've been waiting for all year long and one that we hope will bring out lots of alumni, their families and friends.  Tickets are available through the Rectory at $125.  Don't miss out on the fun of meeting "old friends" and sharing ALL those famous stories!  We would love to see you (though you may have to tell us - me anyway - who you are)!  Please feel free to contact the school for more information.

Earlier this year I and some of our students were invited to participate in a program for Telicare TV.  The show is “Tomorrow’s Hope” and the episode entitled “Our Bright Future” features interviews with the host, Bernadette Castro.  Though taped some time ago, I have been informed that the sessions will be aired at this time.  It will be on Cablevision Channel 29, Verizon FiOS, Channel 296, and Time-Warner, Channel 471 at the following times:

Sunday, 4/16 at 7:00 AM

Monday, 4/17 at 8:30 PM

You can also watch the episode during the above timeslots by going to and clicking on the “Watch Live Now” button located on the right side of the page.  The Internet schedule should match the on-line schedule.  (It’s really neat – our students were wonderful and extremely joyful! I was and am very proud of them!)

Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for April 2, 2017


Congratulations to seventh grader Rita Caruso for winning second place for her video clip in the Diocesan Respect Life contest recently.  We are so proud of the accomplishments of all of our students, but it’s a “feather in the cap” when one is recognized for her talent in a diocesan-wide contest!  Way to go, Rita!!


We’ve done it once again – we turned a page on the calendar!  This year seems to be going even faster than usual (and I refuse to say that it’s because I’m getting older!) and already we’re into the month of April.  In terms of school time, that really doesn’t leave us much time to accomplish all that still needs to be done.  And, in the time of the liturgical year, on this the Fifth Sunday of Lent, there is less than two weeks until the celebration of the Resurrection.  Are we ready?  Did we indeed turn our hearts to the Lord during this penitential season?  It’s not too late - “With the Lord there is mercy and fullness of redemption.”  Turn to the Lord and know first-hand His mercy and forgiveness.


The PSA is hosting the SPRING BOOK FAIR this week on Thursday and Friday in the school cafeteria.  Please watch Kids ’Mail for information about the exact times since they are not available at this writing.  Children, of course, will visit the fair during class time.  Parents are most welcome to browse during the day as well.


Let’s take a look at the entire week ahead:

  • Monday:   Grade 7 to morning mass; Baked ziti; Chorus after school
  • Tuesday:  Grade 6 to morning mass; Deli sandwiches; Parish children’s choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:  Band lessons with Full Band at 8:00 AM; Grade 2 to morning mass; Hot dog day; Spanish Scrabble after school; 90TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE MEETING AT 7:30 PM IN THE CONVENT

The Parish Dinner Dance honoring St. Raymond School’s 90th Anniversary is right around the corner.  It is a perfect opportunity for families and friends of the school community to gather in celebration.  I know that I am truly looking forward to seeing many familiar faces from my last 30 years here.  Memories make the heart grow fonder.  Be sure to reserve a spot to join in the festivities.  We would love to see you!
