Welcome to St. Raymond School

Welcome to St. Raymond School, a Catholic elementary school dedicated to nurturing a Christ-centered community where students serve God and others, develop their talents, strive for academic excellence and become life-long learners.  Founded in 1926, St. Raymond School continues to build on the strong foundation and traditions that were established over the years.  Students are encouraged to develop a positive respect for themselves and others while learning to demonstrate faith through action.  Our academic purpose is to develop each student to achieve scholastic success and to grow   spiritually, emotionally, socially and aesthetically.  Come and visit to see us in action.

Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for February 24, 2019


Welcome back from (hopefully) a week of rest and fun.  School reopens Monday morning at the regular time – please God, with healthy students and faculty!  The weeks before the break were full of flu, strep and viruses.  We’re all praying that the germs found their way out of the school and went far, far away!

Just in case you didn’t hear, “We are the champions” with both our girls’ and boys’ Middle School Spirit Basketball Teams!  The teams played their championship games at St. Mary’s High School in Manhasset right before the winter break and SCORED beautifully!  Congratulations to the team and, most especially, to their devoted coach, Mrs. Rosemary Regan.  With the girls win on Thursday, Rose achieved her 100th win with the Spirit teams.  Way to go, Rose!!

Anyone who is participating in our “Mixed Bag” catalog sale should be aware that all orders are due on Tuesday.  The bags are lovely and hopefully will serve folks well.  This seems like the ideal time to thank everyone for their continued support of our candy sale.  I am so grateful to tell you that the school made a profit of $3000 on the sale.  Thank you, a thousand times, over!

As we return to our regular routine this week, our first graders will experience their first “standardized test” as they take the Cognitive Abilities Test.  There is no special preparation necessary – just a good night’s sleep and a tasty breakfast! 

Of course, the exciting part of this week comes at the end of it with FAMILY FUN NIGHT for the children on Friday evening and NIGHT AT THE RACES for the adults on Saturday night!  Tickets are available through the school for both events, so don’t miss out on the fun.
