Congratulations to our 2nd grade students and parents who received and participated in the Holy Sacrament of first Communion. I would like to extend a special thank you to Rev. Miguel Briseno from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish for celebrating with our students. The homily was heartfelt and surely to be remembered by our students for many years.
A very warm thank you to our volunteers who dedicated so much time and effort in making every day of Faculty and Staff appreciation week so very special. The teachers’ lounge was colorful and festive in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. We truly enjoyed the snacks, sweets, and meals. I think we gained at least ten pounds!
This week will be filled with exciting events. Our 8th graders will soon be leaving us, so they have a very busy last few days. On Friday they will be attending their last mass with the school community. They will exchange well wishes and small gifts with our 7th graders who will now take their place in the pews. Please keep all our 8th graders, teachers, and parents in your prayers.
After mass on Friday our Speech coaches will present ribbons to those students who participated in the Speech Festival and Speech Tournament. Congratulations to all!
The end of the school year is fast approaching; I thank you for sending your beautiful children to St. Raphael School. We hope to see them again next year.
Registration is under way. Please leave your packets in the front office.
