Welcome to St. Raymond School

Welcome to St. Raymond School, a Catholic elementary school dedicated to nurturing a Christ-centered community where students serve God and others, develop their talents, strive for academic excellence and become life-long learners.  Founded in 1926, St. Raymond School continues to build on the strong foundation and traditions that were established over the years.  Students are encouraged to develop a positive respect for themselves and others while learning to demonstrate faith through action.  Our academic purpose is to develop each student to achieve scholastic success and to grow   spiritually, emotionally, socially and aesthetically.  Come and visit to see us in action.

Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner… for March 17, 2019


Top of the morning to you all!  Hopefully this day of “the wearing of the green” will be a joyful and fun one for everyone.  Our “Golden Rays” have already made their annual appearance in New York City by marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  If you missed them by chance, there’s still an opportunity to cheer for them next Saturday, the 23rd at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Rockville Centre (It’s closer and slightly less congested!).  One way or the other, enjoy your day!

Officially, the third and final trimester of the school year begins this Monday.  Talk about time flying!  This year is certainly slipping quickly through our fingers!  Obviously, there is much to do in these last few months and we’re all ready to attack the curriculum from the start!  Now that the days are getting longer and spring is about to begin, we should have a renewed energy to sail through to the end of the year.

Let’s take a look at what the week has in store for each of us:

  • Monday:Grade 7 to morning mass; baked ziti at lunch; Student Council meeting at lunchtime
  • Tuesday:School Mass at 8:45 am with 6th grade hosting; pizza lunch; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 pm in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:Band and string lessons with Full Band at 8 am; Grade 1 to morning mass; deli sandwiches; 6th Grade Book Club and Spanish Scrabble after school
  • Thursday:Grade 7 to morning mass; 8th Grade CPR refresher course; bagels; 8th grade Math Enrichment at lunchtime; Chess Club and Chorus after school
  • Friday:Grade 8 to morning mass; hot pretzels at lunch; 8th grade Math Enrichment at lunchtime
  • Saturday:St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Rockville Centre

As you can see, we are celebrating the Feast of St. Joseph with a school mass.  It’s a special day and one for us to invoke the help of St. Joseph in our daily work.  St. Joseph is a perfect model for each of us in doing the will of God in our lives.

Please note that assessment cards will be distributed at dismissal (11:30 am) on Wednesday, March 27th.  AND, our next BINGO is Saturday, April 6th!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day and happy St. Joseph’s Day.  God bless.
