Welcome to St. Raymond School

Celebrating 90 Years of





January 29 – February 4


 Welcome to St. Raymond School as we joyfully celebrate Catholic Schools Week 2017.  Each year the students anticipate this special week of fun and learning as they work together in community.  It is a time to reflect on the benefits of receiving a Catholic education and give thanks to those who offer us that opportunity.  We remember and pray for our parents and benefactors, for Church and civil leaders, for public officials and those who care for us daily in our police, fire and military services, and for each other.  Exciting events are planned for this week and you are welcome to join us where possible.  Come and see what St. Raymond’s has to offer young people in our area.




Sunday, January 29th               Opening Mass at 9:00 AM in the Church followed by OPEN HOUSE in the school complete with breakfast treats and tours of the facility.

Monday, January 30th              GAME DAY with a special schedule of physical activities in the gym and involvement with student-created math games in the cafeteria

Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for January 8, 2017


In today’s readings we hear the Magi ask, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews?  We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.”  We celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany this Sunday – a time for us also to come to do the Infant King homage.  It becomes our responsibility to figure out the way that we, in 2017, can best do that.  Is it by opening our hearts to others – perhaps with a kind word or a gentle gesture?  It’s up to each of us to do what should be done.


This is a full week of school for us (unless the Lord chooses otherwise!).  We are definitely back into the swing of things with many things on our agendas.  Here’s a look at what’s planned for the week:

  • Monday:  World’s Finest Chocolate sale begins; Baked ziti at lunch; Chorus practice after school
  • Tuesday:  Deli sandwiches at lunch; Math Olympiads for Grades 4-6 after school; Spirit Team away game with St. Elizabeth Anne Seton at 3:30 PM; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:  Band lessons with Full Band at 8:00 AM; Pizza day; Math Olympiads for 7-8 after school
  • Thursday:  Blood Center presentation to the 5th Grade; Hot pretzels at lunch; Math Enrichment for Grade 8 at lunchtime; Spirit Team away game at St. Christopher’s at 3:30 PM; 90th Anniversary Committee meeting at 7:30 PM in the Convent
  • Friday:  Bagel day


We are quickly approaching this year’s celebration of CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK (January 29th through February 4th.  As tradition has it, we begin with the OPENING MASS at 9:00 AM on Sunday, the 29th, followed by an OPEN HOUSE in the school with breakfast and tours of the facility.  Each day has special events with something for everyone.  New families who may be interested in becoming part of our school family are encouraged to join us for our celebration.  Please note that St. Raymond’s also has a Nursery School and Pre-K program.  For more information or to arrange a tour during school hours, please contact the main office at 593-9010.
