Dear St. Raphael Families,
Greetings! Congratulations to our volleyball, soccer, and cross country teams. They were recently recognized at our pep fest. Mr. Danaher, our new music teacher, kicked off our pep fest by playing the accordion to the tune of “When the Saints Go Marching In”. We welcome Mr. Danaher and his strong musical background to St. Raphael Catholic School!
Classical Education at St. Raphael Catholic School develops well-rounded learners. Music develops the faculties of the memory, communication, and so much more. Recently, I have been reminded from educational leaders about the importance of building memory and the role of memorization in learning. Students will be able to practice this at Christmas Village , December 1 st and at our upcoming concert.
I am pleased to announce our Christmas Concert and Open House (Preschool- 8 th ) the evening of December 18 th ! We will start with an Open House, followed by a musical performance. Food and beverages will be provided! Stay tuned about the exact start and end times. Mark your calendar for December 18 th and consider inviting other potential families of future St. Raphael students to the Open House.
Coffee with the Principal is this Tuesday, November 13th from 7:45-8:30 am ! This is a good time for conversation with the principal and other parents. I look forward to possibly seeing you this Tuesday.
