Newsletter October 5, 2015




Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

I want to thank all of you for your support in our Annual Fund! We should be collectively proud that our school community reached our first goal of $35,000! It’s a great accomplishment. Now we will continue with phase two of the Annual Fund, seeking grants from foundations and local businesses. We are so grateful for your continued support of our school!

Progress report cards go home this week. Please remember that you can always view your child’s grades via Gradelink. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

On October 29th, we will have our Grandparents Mass. Please invite grandparents or honorary grandparents for this special occasion. Mass will be at 10:00 am followed by a brief classroom visit and then lunch. This is such a wonderful day for our school community as our students spend some quality time with their grandma and/or grandpa! Grandparents will also walk away with a special photo from this memorable day!

Last week during daily Mass, on the Memorial of the Guardian Angeles, Monsignor Jon reminded us that God gave everyone their own guardian angel to pray for us, to protect us, and to love us. It reminded me of the prayer that we all learned as young children…Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love entrusts me here, ever this day be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

Please note that we do not have school on October 12th for a teacher-training day. We will be getting together with the teachers from Our Lady of Mount Carmel to collaborate and work together. The teachers are eager to share best practices and learn from the other Catholic school teachers in our area.

In Mary’s Love,

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

During the next five weeks, please pray the rosary as a family. Each newsletter will contain one of the joyful mysteries.

The Second Joyful Mystery – The Visitation                            Spiritual Fruit:  Charity and Love 

Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth, who learns that she has conceived a child in her old age.  Their visit is marked by happiness and thanksgiving as they rejoice in the wonderful gifts of God.  Mary, with the Holy one inside of her, makes Elizabeth’s unborn child leap within her womb.  Though such a simple visit, both are moved with God’s love and strengthened by His Grace.  This mystery teaches us that we are to cherish our encounters with others.  Each person God puts in our path is an opportunity to love, and share in the blessings God has bestowed upon us.


St. Raphael, Pray for Us!

Mission Statement

SR_Emblem-150hSt. Raphael School was founded when God answered a Daughter of Charity’s prayer.  To this day, our mission is consistent with that of our founding Sisters: to educate all children in preschool through eighth grade in mind, body and spirit by imparting the values of Jesus through a rigorous curriculum, devoted faculty and an actively involved parent community.
