St. Raphael School Student Journal

 

Started by a group of St. Raphael students in the spring of 2018, the St. Raphael School Journal is a monthly publication designed, edited, and written by St. Raphael students for St. Raphael students and their families. The Journal is proud to showcase the work of St. Raphael students in the form of featured columns and student submissions, while working to keep students and their families informed of what is going on within the school and its classes. Under the guidance of Presbytera Maria Koulianos, the newsletter team looks forward to each wonderful year of publication.
