Pre Registration Packets

Dear St. Raymond School Families,

As we prepare for the 2019-2020 school year, we are mindful of the many financial sacrifices our school families make to provide our children with a quality Catholic education. First and foremost, we thank you, our parents, for partnering with us to educate your child/ren in the faith. It is the goal of the entire St. Raymond community to provide the best Catholic education possible to the families of Joliet, Shorewood, Plainfield and surrounding areas.

When determining tuition for the upcoming school year, there are a number of factors that are considered in setting the new tuition, including salary and health insurance increases for the faculty and staff, routine and unexpected maintenance of a building 100 years old, as well as educational investments that provide an education of unparalleled quality for our children all while trying to keep a balance of affordability for our families. Tuition rates are established in collaboration with our rector, Fr. Bill and with the School Board. As stewards of our school’s finances, we take our responsibility of overseeing the school budget seriously.

The re-registration packet was sent home today with the Thursday folder. Included in the packet are the 2019-2020 St. Raymond tuition rates. In order to plan for staffing, materials, and supplies, it is important the tuition contract be returned to the front office by May 3, 2019. If you register by Friday, April 3rd, the registration rate will only be $100. Beginning April 6th, registration will be the regular rate of $150.

As we plan for the future of our school, the continued support of our entire community – parents, teachers, alumni, and parishioners – is vital to our long-term viability. The single most important factor to our continued sustainability is enrollment. Fully enrolled classrooms allow us to keep tuition costs affordable, while having the necessary funding to provide programs that strengthen the experience of our students. We hope that you will share the wonderful opportunities St. Raymond School provides with others and encourage them to explore St. Ray’s as an option for their child’s education.

As your partner in education, we are grateful for your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely in Christ,

Ms. Marjorie Hill
