Principal’s Corner…for October 14, 2018

For the second year in a row St. Raymond School is having a WALK FOR EDUCATION this Monday, October 15th with the entire school community.  The children have all received information toward getting sponsors to spur them on and to help raise some funds for school security and technology.  The young ones (Nursery to Grade 3) will be circling the building for a few laps, while the older children will be walking from the front of the school to Carman to Scranton to Grant and back through the lot to the front of the building before starting all over again!  Their “walk” will take them a little longer since it entails 3 to 4 laps.  Anyone interested in helping the cause can sponsor Father Chuck or me as we do our bit to help the cause.  All donations can be made to “St. Raymond School”.  Thanks. Be sure to cheer the children on if they pass by your space.

We must then get a little more serious since this is the week of IOWA tests.  All our children from second to eighth grade will be taking standardized tests during the week.  Tests are divided into sections over the course of the week so that the children will not tire of taking them.

Our Student Council will be going to the Passionate Monastery in Jamaica Estates on Friday to attend the taping of “The Sunday Mass” which will be televised in the future.  It’s a good experience for the students, allowing them to be e community for others.  We will be sure to share the time that St. Raymond’s will be on the air!

Here’s what the week holds:

  • Monday:WALK FOR EDUCATION; Student Council meeting at lunchtime; Baked ziti
  • Tuesday:IOWA testing begins for 2-8; Pizza day; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday: NO BAND LESSONS; IOWA testing continues; Deli sandwiches; 6th Grade Book Club
  • Thursday:IOWA testing continues; Bagel day; Chorus practice after school in the Music Room
  • Friday: “The Sunday Mass” taping; Hot pretzels

Sunday, the 21st of October is the beginning of EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION WEEK in the Diocese.  Please watch the bulletin next week for more details.  There will be an OPEN HOUSE for interested folks for the Nursery, Pre-K and K-3 classes on Tuesday morning, October 23rd from 9-11.  All new families are welcome.  Come and see what we have to offer and please bring your friends.

On Sunday, the 21st St. Raymond School is participating in the “Making Strides Breast Cancer Walk” with our “Golden Rays” team at Jones Beach.  We would be most grateful if anyone would choose to sponsor us (Yes, the Sisters are walking!!).  There is a Making Strides Donation Page at  Type our team name, Golden Rays, to start the donation process (or simply send a check over to the school).  We are most grateful for your support.  (As you can see, we’re sure getting our “steps in” this month!  Exercise is good for you!!)

Stay close to our Lady through the Rosary and have a prayerful week.
