LETTER FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. St. Teresa of Avila, Feast Day Oct. 15

Dear Saint Raphael Parents & Friends,

Sometimes I see students who struggle with school. Sometimes it is because the academics are hard. Sometimes it is because they carry the worries of their parents. Sometimes it is because they crave the attention, even if it is attention to bad behavior. Almost always it is a lack of peace.

May today there be peace within.

Do we sometimes wonder if we are in the right job, at the right place? Parents and teachers sometimes wonder if they said the right thing to the children.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Sometimes the troubles of the world make us doubt. Yet, our children need to see us hopeful for their future by believing in God.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

Sometimes I am sad when I think of my husband’s death, and yet I was lucky to have someone who loved me and shared my faith, my belief in Catholic schools, and my hope that we will meet again.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

St. Teresa of Avila lived in the 1500’s, but her message of the power of God to give us peace, purpose in our lives, and gratitude for His gifts and love are timeless. Her message is what we need in a world that is without peace. Her message is what we need to give our children.

This Friday our faculty will be attending a Professional Development Day in Daly City. We hope to bring back new ideas from the many different workshops to make your child’s learning even better.

Don’t forget that all parents are expected to schedule a parent-teacher conference. Please contact the teacher or call the office if you do not yet have a conference scheduled.

May we use the wisdom of St. Teresa of Avila to lead us, and our children, to true peace in our lives.

Lydia Collins, Principal
