Dear St. Raphael School Community,
As we begin another exciting and enriching school year, I am reminded of the Olympic games that occurred during the summer. It was inspiring to witness dedicated athletes competing at the highest levels and accomplishing lifelong dreams. For some, the games included a medal, for all the athletes, it was the culmination of years of dedication. Each Olympian, displayed the heart of a champion with determination, compassion, diligence, and love of the game. To me, the values of our Olympians mirror our St. Raphael School community comprised of dedicated families, teachers, and staff. We are here because we deeply believe in our school community and want our children to grow in the likeness of Jesus, and to be their best selves…just like the Olympians!
Olympian Katie Ledecky left the Tokyo games with four medals and as the most decorated female swimmer of all time. She regularly credits her parents and her Catholic education for her achievements. Katie exemplifies the totality of our Catholic mission to educate the Whole Child in Mind, Body and Spirit. St. Raphael School does this with the support of our parent partners and our devoted faculty and staff. Through a rigorous well-rounded curriculum, we are enhancing each child’s unique learning potential.
The St. Raphael School Annual Fund is integral to the education of the Whole Child. While tuition funds establish the foundation for the school, the money contributed annually by our valued parents, friends and family, supports critical programs for students to grow both academically and in their faith. These special programs are cherished components to the St. Raphael School experience, and one of the reasons you have grown to love and trust our school for your family. In this spirit, I humbly request a contribution that is meaningful for your family, for our 2021-2022 Annual Fund.
In Mary's Love,
Ms. Michelle Limb
