Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Welcome to Catholic Schools Week! It’s a fun time to celebrate our students, teachers, pastors, and parents! We have fun activities all week long for our school. We hope everyone enjoys. Please see the schedule in the Tuesday folder as well as in the e-newsletter! Please join us on Friday from 1:00 – 3:00 for our Open House. The junior high will be highlighted by our teachers and students. Please remember to stop by and see the amazing features of our highly academic and successful junior high!
On January 17th, we had the honor of hosting the new Superintendent of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Mr. Paul Escala. It was quite an honor because we have never, as long as even Mrs. Galvan can remember, have we had a formal visit from the Superintendent. Mrs. Galvan has been teaching at St. Raphael School for the past 28 years! Mr. Escala was quite impressed with our beautiful campus and of course our studious students. The children made him cards and he left our campus with a huge smile on his face!
Our annual school auction is fast approaching. On Saturday, February 29th, “Old Hollywood Gala” will take place at the Granada Theater! We do ask that all of our families support this important fundraiser with a minimum $300 donation. Please see the Auction Family Information packet in your Tuesday folders for more information and various ways to meet your family donation requirement. Also, you can visit http://bit.ly/srauctionitemsto find items to donate.
Please note that on Friday, February14th, we do not have school due to a teacher in-service. Enjoy the long four-day weekend!

God, our Father and Creator, be with us in our school. Help us to treasure Your gift of life and treat one another with care.
Let us always remember that we are all created in Your image. Come, Lord Jesus, and be with us in our school. Guide our teachers, guide our parents, and lead our students to recognize You in all people. Come, Holy Spirit, and be with us in our school. Give us a vision for the future, and the determination for shaping a faith-filled future.
