Parents Helping Teachers (PHT)

Who We Are

We are a group of parents working together to support the dedicated teachers and administrators of St. Raphael School (SRS) through the enhancement of school resources and day to day experiences that enable our children to thrive.  We also strive to build and strengthen the SRS community and togetherness among the wonderful SRS families.

The Executive Board of PHT for the 2019-2020 school year includes:

  • Chair  – Tina Greazel
  • Co-Chair – Jessie Raymond
  • Secretary – Carrie Elizondo-Hudak
  • Treasurer – Maria Mendoza

What We Do

Our main objectives:

  • To promote communication among parents, teachers, and administration.
  • To provide parents and teachers with information to aid in all aspects of education, growth, and development in a Christ centered atmosphere.
  • To promote good will and cooperation between and among parents, faculty, administration, the parish of St. Raphael’s, and the surrounding community.

We also provide funds and volunteer support for teacher and school needs that are not otherwise funded in our school’s general operating budget.

Past support has included providing new white boards in all of the classrooms, new recess equipment, meals for the teachers during conferences and appreciation week, prizes for box top contests, subsidizing bus fees for field trips, classroom supplies, and more!
