Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,      

            Just last week, the Detroit Tigers were in California playing against the Oakland A’s and the Anaheim Angels. You might be wondering why this is significant for our St. Raphael School newsletter. Well, the starting catcher for the Detroit Tigers, James McCann, is a graduate. Many of our teachers, fellow parents and alumni traveled to Oakland and Anaheim to watch James play. It’s not just about graduating from college, being drafted by a Major League Baseball team and making it to the Big League…it’s about who James is as an individual. James’s mom, Mrs. McCann, came to visit St. Raphael School to bring a few signed baseballs for our teachers and friends. In speaking with Mrs. McCann, I congratulated her for her son’s amazing accomplishments as an athlete, but more importantly, for being a sincere, humble, faith-filled and inspirational man which is evident in his interviews and how he carries himself. Her response was, “He got his foundation here!” On almost everything that James signs, he also includes Mark 10:27 that states, “Jesus looked at them and said, “For human beings it is impossible, but not for God. All things are possible for God.” This is what St. Raphael School does for our graduates…it builds that foundation that no matter how one succeeds or may struggle in life; they will have their faith as a foundation. Congratulations, James, and Go Tigers!

 

            Please join us in the church for our awards assembly at 11:00 am on Thursday, June 11. This is also our last day of school and students are dismissed at Noon.

 

            We wish all of you a safe and blessed summer vacation, filled with happy memories. Please remember that your Mathletics, Reading Eggs and Reading A-Z subscriptions are active during the summer. Students should try to spend time each day doing something academic to ensure that they are not only retaining what they learned this year, but also growing in both English Language Arts and Mathematics.

 

Important Dates:                                                    
June 8: Jeans for Jesus
June 11: Last Day of School. Awards Assembly at 11:00 in the Church. Noon Dismissal.
August 8: Dennis Uniform Sale in the Parish Hall from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
August 27: 1st Day of School for the 2015-2016 School Year with Noon Dismissal.

 

In Mary’s Love,

 

Ms. Michelle Limb, Principal

 

A Blessing for Summer Vacation

 

Take time to claim your strength; they are gifts of God.
Take time to have fun; it's God's way of teaching you your strengths.
Take time to grow yourself; only you can grow you.
Take time to trust yourself; God trusts you.
Take time to be self-reliant; it is better than being dependent.
Take time to share with others; they will bless you, and you will bless them.
Take time to have hope, you are a child of God. Let's put ourselves into the hands of the Lord, and pray that God will bless us and our families during the wonderful months of summer.
May we all help make our home a place of relaxation, joy, love, peace and safety.
May we be generous and considerate, not thinking only about ourselves, but helping others enjoy the blessings of a summertime.
Lord God, Creator of all things, guide our steps and strengthen our hearts, during these months of summer and vacation days.
Grant us refreshment of mind and body.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
