Dragons LOVE the Mannequin Challenge!
Last week, we had some fun at both campuses and filmed our students taking the Mannequin Challenge, a new viral social media phenomenon. 
NBC 12 aired the Lower School video on their November 21 morning news show and on their Facebook page where it has been viewed over 7,000 times!
For those that have yet to see the videos, the links are below.


For more info on how the Mannequin Challenge started, here is a CBS news link.

Tuition Raffle Coming Soon!
Be on the look out for a flyer on December 1 containing details about our Tuition Raffle. The raffle will be drawn at our St M Auction on February 11!
Join us for Meetings with Michael: Nov. 30 at 6:45 p.m.
At the start of the school year, we kicked off a community conversation at the VMFA on cultural identity and how it informs students' experiences at St. Michael's. 
Cultural literacy is essential to a 21st-century definition of "superior academic instruction." So our hope with this next Meeting with Michael gathering is:
  • to offer some insights on the role cultural literacy plays within students' social-emotional development as well as the St. Michael's curriculum;  
  • to hear about your experiences and those of your children around matters of cultural identity.
Please join us on Wednesday, November 30 at 6:45 p.m. at the Middle School Singleton Campus Library.   
Got Milk Jugs? 
We need to collect 200-400 gallon empty milk jugs for an exciting STEM project and would be most appreciative if families could send them in.
Please wash jugs thoroughly and drop them off in the libraries at either campus. Thanks!
Need Childcare for Winter Break?
St M will be hosting camps for grades K-8 during the winter holiday break (Dec. 19-23 and Dec. 26-30.)
