Registration forms for the upcoming school year have been e-mailed to parents last week. The forms can also be found on the parish website. At the present time, in-person classes are scheduled to be held in the St. Raymond School building starting in September for grades 2-8. First grade will be taught at home by the parents. First grade parents and their child will meet five times throughout the school year for instruction and then attend Mass together right after each meeting. Please drop off or mail in your completed forms along with payment as soon as possible.
The Religious Education program is in need of Catechists. Please consider joining this important ministry of educating our young people in our faith. For parents who decide to teach for us and have children in the program, there is no Registration fee. Please do not be apprehensive if you think you are not able to teach a Religion class. The teacher manuals are user friendly and there will be a new teacher workshop held at the beginning of the year. There is full-time support throughout the year from the Religious Education staff. Another consideration is to team-teach a class, meaning that there are two teachers sharing the responsibility of teaching a class. Here is where we need teachers:
2nd grade Tuesdays 3:30pm-4:30pm 3 teachers needed
3rd grade Wed or Thurs 3:30pm-4:30pm 1 teacher needed
4th grade Wednesday 3:30pm-4:30pm 1 teacher needed
5th grade Thursday 3:30pm-4:30pm 1 teacher needed
6th grade Wednesday 3:30pm-4:30pm 1 teacher needed
If you are able to join our ministry, please call the Religious Education office at 516-593-9075 – our office hours are Monday-Thursday 10am-4:30pm.
