Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Last week, we welcomed three of our students into the Catholic Church though the Sacrament of Baptism. Monsignor Jon reminded us how old this Sacrament is and how special is it to receive as well as us to witness it. We all renewed our Baptismal promise together and stood in solidarity as Christians. Welcome to the Catholic Church, Adrian, Alana and Gianfranco!
It is with great sadness but also joy that we announce that Mrs. Waples is retiring. She has been at St. Raphael School for 19 years and has the wonderful opportunity to help care for her first grandchild that is due in this world in just a few months. We want to also take this opportunity to announce that Ms. Justine Bosio will be the new 5th grade teacher. Ms. Bosio is a graduate of St. Raphael School and has taught 5th grade in Colorado. She is a graduate of Colorado State University Pueblo where she earned her teaching credential and will complete her Masters degree this June. We welcome Ms. Bosio to our fantastic faculty and staff and we wish Mrs. Waples many wonderful and special days ahead as “grandma!”
Please remember that we do not have school this coming Friday. We have a teacher in-service day where the teachers will visit the Apple Store for a special training on managing classroom iPads, Apple TV, content programs and much more. We are looking forward to this individualized training.

Please pray Hail Holy Queen this week as a family.
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, To thee do we send up our sighs, Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
