It’s that time of year: Saints Olympic Week will be held next week! For those who are new to Saint Raphael, Saints Olympic Week is a week of fun and fundraising, and each class earns points based on their spirit–and spirit of giving! Each day there is a theme, and there are three charities that students are asked to help this week. Results of the day will be announced each afternoon. Here are the rules:

DAILY FIRST PLACE         =          300 points
DAILY SECOND PLACE   =          200 points
DAILY THIRD PLACE        =          150 points
DAILY FOURTH PLACE    =          125 points

A student dressed exceptionally in the spirit of the day will be counted as 5 students (increasing the percentage of participating students).  A student in uniform will not be added in the total, while a student dressed down, but not participating, will negate a student counted as Superior Effort.  These days are the easiest way for students to accumulate points.  Students cannot wear masks or clothing that will negatively impact the school day.

Monday, March 14 — Purple and Gold Dress Down

This is a dress down day to wear as much purple and gold clothing and accessories as possible.  (School uniform does NOT count toward class total.)

Tuesday, March 15 — Dress Down for St. Mary’s School in Kenya

This is a $2 dress down day to benefit St. Mary’s School in Kenya.  Any student who contributes extra money toward this dress down will receive extra Olympic points; 10 points for every dollar over the dress down fee.
