Dear St. Raphael School Families and Friends,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, and a special heartfelt welcome to our new families joining our wonderful community. It was great to see all the smiling faces even through their masks this morning as the students eagerly walked on to campus. We are looking forward to another wonderful and fun school year!
Here are a few reminders about dropping off and picking up your children. As per the handbook, students need to be dropped off and picked up in the parking lot, NOT on St. Joseph Street. This is for the safety of everyone. The first bell rings at 7:50 am and the classroom doors will open at this time to ensure that class begins on time at 8:00 am. Our teachers want to make the most of every moment of instructional time, so please do not arrive late! If you are late, you will need to sign your child in at the tardy table or front office and make sure that your child has a tardy slip. We all thank you for your cooperation in ensuring that all our children are safe!

A prayer for the new school year:
Father of all mercies
We ask that You would bless
the youngest and littlest of learners,
the most helpless and powerless of persons,
with Your infinite and loving mercy,
granting them the strength to learn, concentrate,
and act in love towards
their teachers and fellow students.
We also ask that You would watch over them,
at home and at school
and give them proper direction
so that they may learn
of Your wonderful virtues.
We ask this in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
