September 10: Happy 60th Birthday!
Celebrating 60 Years!
Sixty years ago today, St. Michael's opened its doors to 63 first, second and third grade students with subsequent grades added each year. While St M has grown to meet the changing needs of our students, what has stayed constant is our strong values, the love of learning that is instilled and the sense of belonging that our students, families and faculty feel here. The spirit of St M will live in generations of Dragons for years to come!
On Friday, we gathered for a full School chapel service to celebrate St M's lasting legacy. Special thanks to St M alum and past parent, Matthew Steilberg '78, who gave the Chapel sermon. Matthew shared that while students have many goals here during their school years, at St M, students are truly taught to care for our communities and each other. Thus, our number ONE shared goal as Dragons is treating others with kindness.
Lastly, magic happens when you gather 375 Dragons together! Be sure to check out the above video and our Media Gallery.
Happy 60th Anniversary to St M!

Updated Allergy Protocol
If a student has severe life-threatening allergies and uses an epi-pen or rescue inhaler for severe asthma or breathing issues, we are asking that families complete the FARE Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan with their healthcare provider and return a signed copy to School.
The FARE form is located in the School offices. (This form and a parent instruction letter has been sent home with children with known allergies.) Again, the plan must be completed by a health care professional with any accommodations that are to be implemented in the classroom.
