Dear Parents of St. Raphael Catholic School,

It has come to my attention that communication between school and parents needs improvement. In an effort to strengthen our communication, a monthly newsletter will go out to inform you of coming events. Additionally, the news letter will address any issues which may be of concern to our school community.

We are celebrating Advent;  you will probably see some wreaths around the school. The students have donated articles of clothing and toiletries to Catholic organizations for distribution to the poor and needy. Student Council will also be collecting non-perishable food items to be delivered to the immigrants at the Annunciation House. Every hall is responsible for donating different items. We stress to the students that this is a season of giving because God gave us the gift of his only begotten son.

  • Tuesday, Dec. 18, the National Junior Honor Society will host a Christmas movie in the cafeteria at 1:00.
  • On Wednesday, Dec. 19, Ms. Vega’s kindergarten class will celebrate Polar Express. They will wear pajamas and have cookies and chocolate milk.
  • Thursday, Dec. 20 is the PreK – 3rd grade Advent Program, in the church beginning at 1 p.m. The program will begin with a performance by our school band. Only parents and siblings of the participants may attend.
  • Friday, Dec. 21 is our last day of school before the Christmas break. Mass at 8:15, students wear Sunday best. Christmas parties begin at 10:30 a.m. Early dismissal at 12:30 and there is NO afterschool care available.
  • December 24, 5:00 p.m., is the School’s Christmas Eve Mass. Our school choir will sing and our students will serve as lectors for this Mass. Our school altar servers will also serve at this Mass.

Please remember that I am available should you wish to speak to me about any concerns that you may have.


Thank you, God bless you,


Ana O’Neill

Interim Principal
