Dear REACH Parent,

The REACH program will be held at St. Raphael School. REACH classes will run from September to April. Ideally, we would like to hold classes every other Saturday, but due to scheduling at St. Raphael’s, our schedule may be slightly different. Classes will be from 10:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M. Please note the new time! The confirmed REACH Calendar will be sent to you in September.

The REACH Program is funded by St. Raphael Church and the Knights of Columbus. There is no cost for the REACH Program. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your child’s experience at REACH a special, meaningful, and positive one.

You will be notified in September of your child’s class. If classes are full, your child will be put on a waiting list, or you may be asked to be a helper in the program. Your promptness in registering your child is most appreciated. Thank you!

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Yours in Christ,
Jeanne McDonald, Coordinator of REACH
