Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner for Nov. 11, 2018

Today’s readings remind us of the generosity of others.  From the Old Testament in the Book of Kings we hear Elijah ask for a drink of water and a little cake from a stranger.  Remarkably the widow does as he asks and is able to feed her son, the prophet and herself for a year from her generous heart.  Then in St. Mark’s gospel we again hear of the generosity of another widow giving from her heart.  I happily find that kind of generosity here at St. Raymond’s all the time – and am most grateful!  Thanks yet again to all those who supported our 8th graders last week with their Yard Sale.  We could never do as well as we do without your continued love and support. 

This week we give honor to all our Veterans.  We are most grateful for their service to our country and for protecting our lives over the years.  It is our prayer that God may continue to hold them gently in the palm of His hand and let them realize how America appreciates them.

We are always trying to find ways to raise money that may be fun and nothing too elaborate.  Tuesday night, November 13th is one of those occasions.  Our PSA is hosting a “McDonald’s Night” at the Oceanside store on Atlantic Avenue from 5:00 to 8:00 PM.  15% of the intake is given to the school.  This has been a most successful fun-raiser and fundraiser in the past and we are hopeful that many of our families will participate again this Tuesday.  You can join in the excitement inside the McDonald’s or stop by the drive-thru.  Both ways are a help to the school.  (And again – we are most grateful!) Say, it even lets the cook off the hook for the night!

Let’s look at this second week of November:

  • Monday:Veterans’ Day observed – NO SCHOOL
  • Tuesday:Pizza day; Math Olympiads for 4-6 after school; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium; McDonald’s Night 5-8 PM
  • Wednesday:Band and string lessons; 3rd Grade to Safety Town (12:30 – 2:00); Deli sandwiches; Math Olympiads for 7-8 after school; 6th Grade Book Club after school
  • Thursday:Bagel day; Junior Sodality at lunchtime for 1-3 and after school for 4-8; Choir after school
  • Friday:Hot pretzels at lunch

I want to remind you that this is the final week to get your BACKWARDS DRAWING ticket.  As is our tradition, the drawing will take place on Sunday afternoon at the end of Hospitality Sunday.  This is a major fundraiser for the parish and school but will only be successful if all the tickets (except #500) are sold.  Please make every effort to help. That doesn’t mean you have to purchase a ticket by yourself; gather some friends or family to share one.  I have a share in a few tickets.  It makes it fun! Of course, the real excitement comes with the chances on the 500th ticket.  Winning that ticket is a guarantee of a prize!  However, “you got to be in it, to win it!” See you there I hope!

Meanwhile, thanks to our Veterans.  Enjoy the day off and let’s pray with Our Lady for peace in our hearts, our country and our world.
