Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Last Thursday, we kicked off our second Annual Fund. Last year, we brought in a little over $46,000 throughout the year. As discussed at Back to School Night, our goal for the next three weeks is to raise $35,000. Remember that the actual cost of tuition per child is $6,970 and every child at St. Raphael School is subsidized. Please help us meet our goal and donate to the Annual Fund. You can bring your check to the school office or even donate online at http://straphaelschoolsb.givezooks.com/. Let’s see how quickly we can reach not only our goal, but also 100% participation!
Our first school Mass is on Wednesday, September 17th at 10:00 am. Monsignor Jon will welcome the entire school community to another wonderful school year and also give a special blessing to our Student Council. Please mark your calendars to join us as we celebrate!
ITBS testing begins next week. Students in grades 2-8 are taking this test in the mornings of September 22-26 and September 29- October 3. It is extremely important that students arrive to school by 8:00 am and that you do not make doctor/dentist/orthodontist appointments during this time.
The St. Raphael Festival is just two weeks away. We are looking for volunteers to work some of the booths and participate in this wonderful event. The festival is on Sunday, September 28th from Noon – 5:00 pm on the school field. We will need cakes for the cakewalk and help for all of the fun games! This will count toward your volunteer hours. You can sign up to volunteer online at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090B4BA5AB29A75-straphael1.

Please pray this prayer with your child/ren this week as we prepare for the Feast Day of St. Raphael:
St. Raphael, of the glorious seven who stand before the throne of Him who lives and reigns, Angel of health, the Lord has filled your hand with balm from heaven to soothe or cure our pains. Heal or cure the victim of disease and guide our steps when doubtful of our ways. Amen.
St. Raphael, Pray for Us!
