Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for January 21, 2018


On this Third Sunday of Ordinary Time we hear in the reading from the Prophet Jonah how the people of Nineveh repented and turned from their evil ways.  They heeded the prophet’s warning and turned back to God.  It seems to me that we citizens of the whole world would be wise to do likewise.  There is no need for all the unkind words and actions that are commonplace today.  We all simply need to “choose to be kind”.

Speaking of being kind, thank you so much for collecting BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION.  Through your good efforts we were rewarded with a check for $584.20 from General Mills – that’s almost 6000 box tops!  Keep collecting and sending them our way.  It’s a pretty easy way to make some extra funds!

Today the school is hosting this month’s HOSPITALITY SUNDAY in the cafeteria after the 9:00, 10:30 and noon masses.  Please join us for a little breakfast and conversation.  We look forward to seeing you.

This is the week before CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK.  As usual we have many fun and exciting events planned for the week especially for our students.  We will share more about that next week.  However, for now you need to know that we will be opening CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK with Mass at 9:00 AM.  That will be followed by OPEN HOUSE in the school until about 1:00 PM.  Students and parents will be available to give tours and answer questions about the school.  Teachers will joyfully greet families in their classrooms and, of course, I will be in the auditorium and around the building to offer assistance.  This year we are also having an OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, January 31st from 9:00 to 11:00 AM so that folks can see exactly what happens when we’re in session.  Hope to see new families during that time.

Meanwhile, we have this week to get through, so let’s take a look at what it holds:

  • Monday:  World’s Finest Chocolate sale ends (all money due); Baked ziti; Student Council meeting at lunchtime; Chorus after school
  • Tuesday:  Deli sandwiches; 8th Grade Math Enrichment at lunchtime; Spirit basketball home game with St. Aidan’s at 3:30 and 4:45 PM; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:  Band lessons with FULL BAND at 8:00 AM; Pizza day; Grade 7 Parent Sacramental meeting at 7:30 in the auditorium
  • Thursday:  Dress Down Day for WFC sale; Bagel day; Chess Club after school; Long Island Band West practice from 5-8 in the cafeteria and auditorium
  • Friday:  Prayer/Professional Day for Teachers; NO SCHOOL for students

Please keep in mind that St. Raymond School is sponsoring our annual BLOOD DRIVE for the Long Island Blood Services on Monday, January 29th from 2:15 to 8:15 PM.  PLEASE consider donation and helping to save a life! God will truly bless your efforts.

EnJOY the week and let’s “choose to be kind” all week!
