As we enter August, I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer. The school year is right around the corner, and with it, the students are likely getting excited to get their schedules for the coming year.

The Back to School Fair (Packet Pick-Up Day, Volunteer Showcase) will be held on Thursday, August 11 from 11 am to 1 pm in Ignatius and Raphael Hall. Our plan is this: Raphael Hall will have schedule pick ups and “business items”. This is a change in the original time of 10:30-12:00. Please note the time change on your calendar.

Ignatius Hall will have tables from different groups and organizations in the school for people to learn more about how they can be involved. Examples would include the Athletic Booster Club (ABC), Home and School Association (HSA), sports teams, sports leagues, clubs, and other groups associated with the school.

We are hoping this will give our parents, new and returning, a great opportunity to become active in the school. I would challenge you to find one area where you can donate your time during this school year.

Be sure to stop and say hello to Mrs. Nesheim and me, as we will be in the concession stand serving treats to the kids! It should be a fun filled day with a lot of energy.

I look forward to seeing everyone at this exciting day to kick off the 2016-17 school year at Saint Raphael Catholic School!

God bless,

John Mihalyo, Principal
