Welcome to St. Raymond School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Tuition is based on the number of children attending the school and the staff required to give them the best possible education.  As usual, we have three separate categories:  Supporting, Non-Supporting and Non-Catholic.  Those families who attend and support (at least $500 a year) St. Raymond Church and neighboring parishes in the Diocese of Rockville Centre are considered “Supporting” (upon verification of your support and attendance).  Please understand that the $500 in parish support is calculated over the previous calendar year.  It is based this year on your 2016 contributions.  Failure to meet that amount would automatically place you in a “Non-Supporting” tuition rate.  All others are “Non-Catholic”.  These are the rates for the 2017-2018 school year.

K-8                                         Supporting                          Non-Supporting               Non-Catholic

One Child                            $5550.                                   $7400.                                   $8950.

Principal's corner and announcements

August 2017


+Dear Parents and Guardians,


Welcome to the St. Raymond School family for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Following our big anniversary year, we are looking forward to sharing the JOY of being a part of the St. Raymond School family.  Trust me, there are still many fun activities and events planned for this school year (most of which are already listed on the school calendar).  As plans become finalized for other events, they will be added to the calendar.  For now, it’s time to think about beginning the “new” year.  School starts on Tuesday, September 5th for all of our students in kindergarten through eighth grade.  We are having half days on the 5th and 6th with dismissal at 11:30 AM.  The first FULL DAY of school will be Thursday, September 7th which will also be the first day for AFTER CARE.  Remember that our dismissal time for regular school days is 2:50 PM.


As is our tradition, our youngest children in the Nursery and Pre-K classes will have a “Meet and Greet” session on Thursday, September 7th – Pre-K from 9:00 to 10:00 AM and Nursery from 10:00 to 11:00 AM.  It is an ideal time for the children and their parents to become familiar with the teachers and their environment.  They will officially begin class the following Monday, September 11th.  Nursery will have shortened sessions limited to 1 ½ hours the first week.  The Pre-K will dismiss at 11:15 AM on Monday and Tuesday and follow the regular schedule (Full time for those choosing the option) starting on Wednesday, September 13th.


Of course, our Parent School Association (PSA) will again host our “Coffee and Conversation” in the school cafeteria on Tuesday, the 5th once the children have entered the building.  Please be sure to stop in to share conversation and friendship as the school year begins.  The school supply store will be open at that time, as well as on Wednesday, August 23rd from 9:00 AM to noon.  PRIMARY NOTEBOOKS AND PENCILS must be purchased from the school.  All other supplies can be bought wherever you can get the best deal for your money!  Gym uniforms can also be purchased from the school that day.


Please remember that all children entering kindergarten, 2nd, 4th and 7th grades, as well as ALL new incoming students, are required by New York State to have a physical examination and immunizations must be current.  Children entering 6th grade or by their 11th birthday are also required by law to receive a booster of the Dtap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine.  Be certain to get documentation of the exam and forward it to Mrs. Daniels in the school Health Office when school begins.  Also please note that any 7th and 8th grade student wishing to participate in the Spirit Team league must also have a current physical exam on file in the Health Office.  PLEASE inform Mrs. Daniels of any allergies that your child may have so that we can do all in our power to keep them safe.


I would ask you to remember that purchasing at least $1500 worth of GIFT CARDS is mandated for each family.  Many cards (Stop & Shop, Key Food, King Kullen, etc.) are available on a daily basis from Mrs. Giglio in the main office.  Specialty cards can also be ordered from her.  We really appreciate your support of the program.  It’s such an easy way for the school to raise needed funds without asking anyone to spend extra money on silly objects.  After all, we ALL have to buy groceries!


Registration for our BEFORE/AFTER CARE program for the children in K-8 is presently underway.  The forms are posted on the website for your convenience.  The program will begin the first full day of school – September 7th.  It would be helpful to have registration forms before that date if at all possible. 


All of our children were given summer assignments at the close of school in June.  Hopefully, they worked on them regularly during the vacation.  Now those assignments should be about completed since they are due on Monday, September 11th.  It is imperative that this required work be completed on time in order for the student to move to the next level at school.


Enjoy the last days of summer as we prepare for our first day.  We look forward to seeing you all in the near future.  Any further questions can be addressed to the main office.


In Mary’s Immaculate Heart, I am
