Principal’s Corner…for May 1, 2016
I think that we’re finally over the cold weather and that spring is actually here. The flowers are blooming, the trees are budding (especially the beautiful one outside my office window) and the allergies are at a high level! However, it’s definitely worth some sneezing and stuffiness to enjoy the beauty of spring. Truly, there is no artist like the divine artist!!
If you missed our Night at the Races, you really missed a good time. The food was delicious (and I’m not just saying that!!), the races were exciting, and the fun was rejuvenating! For the price of the ticket, it was a great night of entertainment! Thank you again to all who joined us and, for those who didn’t, remember to watch for next year’s event!

It’s that time of year for our St. Raymond School Family to express our gratitude to our dear school nurse, Mrs. Michele Daniels. Though only here a few months, Mrs. Daniels has become a true member of our family. She has gently dealt with our children, their parents and their teachers. She’s been around to bandage “boo-boos”, check temperatures, and offer a word of advice. We are most grateful to have her smiling face present to care for us all. Happy Nurse’s Day!
Today’s second collection is for the Elementary Schools in the Rockville Centre Diocese. Half of whatever is collected here at St. Raymond’s stays with us. The other half is shared with the Tomorrow’s Hope Foundation to assist with their scholarships throughout the diocese. Thank you for all that you do for our school and for helping with this cause in particular. Please know you are always in our prayers.
