Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,
Welcome to St. Raphael School and the new school year! St. Raphael School is as Catholic community of students, teachers, parents and support staff working collaboratively to create a safe, caring, supportive, innovative and academically challenging environment for your child. This community fosters individual spiritual growth and self-esteem while promoting respect, understanding and appreciation across cultures. Also, we like to have fun!
One of the goals of our program is to prepare students for a successful and rewarding future by developing their Catholic faith, academic and skills. Therefore, we provide instruction in religion, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music and physical education. In addition, there are visitors (parents and other community members), assemblies, field trips and other enrichment activities that enhance and enrich our classroom instruction.
Respect for diversity and the ability to function effectively in different cultures are fundamental to our program. Students also participate in multicultural activities that are integrated into the classroom curriculum.
We continue to have wonderful opportunities for students to integrate technology to all classrooms! Our students will use Laptops and iPads. Along with our equipment we are also involved in a technology pilot program with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in which our students will be able to explore and learn through programs like Mathletics, Raz Kids and Reading Eggs.
The staff, parents and students of St. Raphael School believe that our school allows the ability, flexibility and latitude to provide innovative curriculum development and an outstanding instructional program. The exciting educational experience here at St. Raphael School reflects the wonderful relationship between the students, parents and school staff, as well as the surrounding community according to our Catholic faith. We are all partners for your child’s success! We are going to have a wonderful year together!
In Mary's Love,
Ms. Michelle Limb
