  • Arts and Crafts

Helping Hands:

During the months of October through April parents of 3, 4 and 5-year-olds are offered the opportunity to spend a morning in their child’s classroom as a “Helping Hand” (HH).  Parents are then able to experience firsthand the curriculum and philosophy of Saint Raphael Preschool.  Teachers will post sign-up sheets outside their classrooms.  Given that the focus of this program is the student attending the preschool, please do not bring siblings of any age when you volunteer as a HH.
