St. Raphael Students Celebrate Their Mothers

St. Raphael teacher Rosemarie Tripodi's JK/SK class performed songs and poems for all of the mothers and grandmothers.

May 5, 2010 - Mothers and grandmothers were invited to a celebration in their honour at St. Raphael Catholic Elementary School on May 5, 2010. As part of the school’s Catholic Education week events, the JK/SK and SK classes put on a special ceremony for all of the students’ mothers and grandmothers. The JK/SK teacher Rosemary Tripodi and SK teacher Lissa Sanchioni had the students work on songs, poems, video slideshows and other tributes to their guests. As well, the celebration included refreshments, two separate draws (one for mothers, one for grandmothers) and take home gifts made by the students. One of the mom’s in attendance, Brooke Belowos, was thrilled with the celebration. “This celebration was absolutely adorable!’ said Belowos. “What a wonderful opportunity to take part in my daughter’s class.” Rosemary Tripodi thanked all of the guests for attending their event. “It is because of you that we are here today.” said Tripodi. “ As May is the month dedicated to mothers, we felt that Catholic Education week was the perfect time to honour our mothers and grandmothers as they are the students first and most important teachers of all!” St. Raphael is one of the Catholic elementary schools that has been selected to be an Early Learning Program site and this event was also an opportunity for parents to get a first hand look at the hands on learning and commitment to students offered at St. Raphael.
