Saint Raphael Academy Welcome to the Saints family. Welcome home.

Saints Olympics March 14-18

March 11, 2022

Remember these fresh faces in 2019? It's our senior class at their first Saints Olympics! Always a favorite time of year for our students, Saints Olympics Week begins next week! Saints Olympics is a time for students to have a little fun and do some charitable giving. Each day is a special themed dress down day, and points are given for students participating. Any student dressed exceptionally in the spirit of the day will be awarded extra points for their class.
A major focus of Saints Olympics is giving back to help those less fortunate from our local community. Throughout the week, students are asked to bring in items to support various charities. The charities chosen this year are Project Sweet Peas, Ronald McDonald House (Providence) and St. Mary’s School in Kenya, our sister school. See below for details about what items to bring.

A Word on Saints Olympics Attire:

Students cannot wear masks or clothing that will negatively impact the school day. A student dressed inappropriately will be asked to change to a school uniform and their grade will lose 50 points. Students must wear their school uniform if they choose not to participate.
