Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for December 17, 2017


Following up on last week, the hymn continues:  “May we stroke the creatures there ox, ass, or sheep?  May we peep like them and see Jesus asleep?  If we touch His tiny hand will He awake?  Will He know we’ve come so far just for His sake?” 

We’re getting that much closer to celebrating the Birthday of our King as we celebrate Gaudete Sunday, the Third Sunday of Advent.  The excitement gets a little more intense as children and adults alike anticipate Christmas.  Gifts are bought and wrapped, cards are written and sent, trees are up and decorated, and thoughts of joy and happiness fill the hearts of all.  Have we found the Infant King in all the excitement?  How about His gift?  Is it found among those under the tree? His is not an expensive gift – just the love of your heart.

This is the last full week of school for 2017!  As usual, it is full of activity and preparation for Christmas.  Let’s take a closer look:

  • Monday:  Grade 8 to morning mass; Baked ziti; Student Council meeting at lunchtime; Chorus after school
  • Tuesday:  Grade 7 to morning mass; Deli sandwiches; 8th Grade Math Enrichment at lunchtime; Spirit basketball home game with St. Mary’s (Manhasset) at 3:30 and 4:45 PM; Parish Children’s Choir’s Christmas party in the cafeteria from 5-6 PM; School Christmas caroling at 6:30 PM
  • Wednesday:  Grade 1 to morning mass; Band lessons (NO full band in the morning); Pizza day
  • Thursday:  Grade 6 to morning mass; Bagel day; Chess Club after school; Spirit basketball away game at St. Christopher’s in Baldwin at 3:30 and 4:45 PM
  • Friday:  School Mass at 8:45 AM with 7th Grade hosting; 11:30 dismissal for the Christmas holiday

You’ll notice that the school is going Christmas caroling on Tuesday evening, the 19th beginning at about 6:30 PM.  We will be serenading the folks in our local neighborhood hopefully to add to their holiday spirit!  It is our desire to bring JOY to all.  The PSA has volunteered to prepare cookies and hot chocolate for us in the cafeteria when we finish.  Interested in joining us?  All are most welcome – just meet us at 6:30 in the cafeteria or find us along the way.  All you need to bring is your voice and Christmas spirit!

Thank you once again for your continued support of and with our school programs.  We are most grateful.  Do please continue to keep our St. Raymond School Family in your daily prayers and know that we are praying for all of our parish families.  Spread the JOY!
