Principal's corner and announcements

Principal’s Corner…for November 18, 2018

The weather has grown a little colder, the trees are a little barer, and the days are a little shorter (at least as far as the light is concerned!). We are that much closer to the holiday season beginning with Thanksgiving.  There are just a few more days before we officially “give thanks” for all the many blessings that our God has given to each of us.  Since Eucharist means thanksgiving, it is ideal that we give thanks by sharing the Eucharist this Thursday morning.  Let us join our hearts and minds in prayer for all the good that God has bestowed on us.  Happy Thanksgiving!

The Thanksgiving holiday makes this a short week for the students and staff of St. Raymond School.  We have two and a half days of class before breaking for the holiday, so we will try to make the most of that time.  Here’s a look at what to expect this week:

  • Monday:Baked ziti at lunch; Student Council meeting at lunchtime
  • Tuesday:Enterprise for Grades 3 & 4; HEPP classes for Grades 1-4; Pizza; Parish Children’s Choir from 5-6 PM in the auditorium
  • Wednesday:Band lessons with Full Band at 8:00 AM; School Mass at 8:45 AM (Third grade hosting); Enterprise for Grades 5 & 6; Dismissal at 11:30 AM for Thanksgiving

This is not only a time for giving thanks, but it is also a time when we do our best to be of service to others.  Our children have already made Christmas cards for Angela’s House for children in need and have collected food for our Parish Social Ministry.  There are so many worthwhile causes especially at this time of year that allow us to give of ourselves and make someone else’s life a little better.  Please know that our children are definitely “sharing the love”.

This afternoon we hold one of the biggest fundraisers of our parish – the BACKWARDS DRAWING.  Hopefully you have purchased a ticket and are excited about being a part of this exciting event.  Come and enjoy the afternoon.  There are some raffles along with a tasty repast while the numbers are called.  Remember that there’s the opportunity to take a raffle on the 500th ticket which is a guaranteed winner!  As usual, you must be in it to win it!  Hope to see you there!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving. Know that the St. Raymond School family will be praying in gratitude for each of you this week.  God bless.
