School Notes

  • Here you'll find a safe, supportive, creative school community that encourages all children to become the best they can be. Teachers form strong partnerships with parents and work to cultivate a desire in each child to discover his or her own talents and gifts. St. Raphael fosters a deep appreciation for the variety of cultures and nationalities within our diverse community. Although our students come from different faith backgrounds, all form a common bond through fellowship. "Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ," our school motto, unites us all. Little Friends of the Sacred Heart, a community service group, is a cornerstone of our school activities. Children help with charity food drives, visit the elderly, and make valentines for veterans.
