Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner… for April 22, 2018


“I am the good shepherd, says the Lord; I know my sheep, and mine know me. “  (John 10:14)  Of course, we all know that the Lord is THE Good Shepherd.  In His divine wisdom Jesus instituted the priesthood to continue to provide shepherds for His people.  Today we are blessed to have shepherds in each of our parishes whom we call “Father”.  Let us pray for all of our priests that God may always protect and care for them so that they too may care for all of us.  Happy Good Shepherd Sunday, Father Chuck.

We will be holding the annual MATH BEE this Monday, the 23rd with the winners moving on to the diocesan-wide math bee held at Kellenberg next month.  Our Bee includes representatives from the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades doing amazing mental math (No pencil and paper allowed!!).  All are welcome to come and watch – though I must admit, it’s a little stressful!

First grade is hosting our school mass for the month on Tuesday.  This is one of my favorite school masses when you can really see how the little ones have grown.  They certainly handle themselves with great maturity.  Truly, it’s a special liturgy that shows what’s special about attending St. Raymond School.  Come and pray with us.

I am very proud to say that the Golden Rays (our Marching Unit) have won first place in their division from the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Rockville Centre.  The parade committee will be presenting the award to us on Tuesday evening.  Way to go, Golden Rays!

  • Monday:School Math Bee at 10:30 AM in the auditorium; Baked ziti; Student Council meeting at lunchtime; Chorus after school in the music room
