Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner… for January 7, 2018


“Behold, the Lord, the Mighty One, has come; and kingship is in his grasp, and power and dominion.”  

(from today’s Entrance Antiphon)  Once again we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany, the time when the Wise Men from the East made their trek in search of the newborn King to pay him homage through their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.   Today is our turn to give homage to King of Kings and give him our gifts. What might they be (that’s between you and Him alone, but be sure to make them special!)?

This is our first full week of school in the new year.  As usual, we have much packed into each day with many things in preparation for Catholic Schools Week at the end of the month.  Here’s a look at what we’re doing this week:

  • Monday:  World’s Finest Chocolate sale begins; Baked ziti at lunch; Chorus practice after school
  • Tuesday:  11:30 dismissal for a monthly Faculty Meeting; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday: Band lessons (NO full band); Pizza day
  • Thursday:  Bagel day; Chess Club after school
  • Friday:  Hot pretzels at lunchtime; Spirit basketball home game with OLP at 3:30 and 4:45 PM.
  • Saturday:  DEFENSIVE DRIVING (9:00 AM to 3:30 PM) and BINGO (6:30 PM


January brings with it the anticipation of the annual celebration of Catholic Schools Week.  This year’s celebration begins (as usual) on the last Sunday of the month – January 28th to be exact.  We will begin, as we should all things, with prayer at the OPENING MASS at 9:00 AM.  This will be followed by an OPEN HOUSE in the school with a special breakfast and tours of our building.  New families are most welcome to attend and see all that St. Raymond School has to offer.  Please note that we have both a NURSERY SCHOOL PROGRAM for 3 year olds and a PRE-K PROGRAM for 4 year olds.  For more information or to arrange a tour during the school day, please contact the main office at 593-9010.  We look forward to seeing many happy faces on the 28th!

Please be aware that the school is hosting a SCHOOL BLOOD DRIVE on Monday, January 29th from 2:00 to 8:00 PM.  We would be most appreciative if folks would come to donate blood.  Last year we happily collected over 70 pints of blood and would love to exceed that number this year.  Remember that the need for blood is great and every pint helps the cause!

Try to stay warm and have a JOYful week!
