Welcome to St. Raymond School




Celebrating 90 Years of

excellence

**************************************************************

Friends,

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.

Principal’s Corner…for March 26, 2017

 

We made it to the last week of March – and hopefully, the end of the bitter cold weather and lovely “white stuff” that made some days this month slightly precarious!  We can only pray that the days will indeed get warmer and that the sun will continue to shine.  The weather sure did do a number on the little flowers and budding trees!  Guess they’re all mixed up as to what time of year it really is!

 

At this writing the GOLDEN RAYS have marched in two St. Patrick’s Day parades – one in New York City (in the sunshine!!) and one in Rockville Centre (don’t know the weather on that one).  We are very proud of how great our marching unit appeared in both bands (even made TV in New York City!!).  They do indeed add flair to the school and we all are most appreciative.  Besides the students who work so hard in preparing for and marching on those days, we need to express our sincere gratitude to those who work with them.  Certainly we thank Mr. Fisher and his colleagues for teaching our children the music; we thank Mr. Sabatino and Mrs. Mallia for the marching routines, the chaperones for walking with the children, and the parents for their never ending support!  God bless you all!

 

There are a couple of reminders for this last week of March.  The READ-A-THON continues until the end of the week (Keep reading your books!!).  Our students will join the children their ages throughout the state in taking the ELA assessment this week.  The week ends with fun for everyone at our annual FAMILY FUN NIGHT run by our helpful PSA.  Let me give you the schedule for the week:

  • Monday:  4th Grade to morning mass; Baked ziti; Chorus after school
  • Tuesday:  3rd Grade to morning mass; NYS ELA for Grades 4 & 6; Deli sandwiches; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday: Kindergarten to morning mass; NYS ELA continues; Pizza; Spanish Scrabble after school
  • Thursday:  2nd Grade to morning mass; NYS ELA continues; Hot pretzels; Math Enrichment at lunchtime for 8th graders; Chess Club after school
  • Friday:  1st Grade to morning mass; Read-a-thon officially ends; Bagel day; Book Club (6-8) after school; FAMILY FUN NIGHT

 

Congratulations to all those students who helped raise money for the American Heart Association this month.  By jumping rope or shooting baskets, the students (and, of course, their families) raised $4477!!  Bravo!  Kudos to you for sharing your hearts with others.
