Week of June 4: Last Week of School!
To all of our graduating Dragons, we will never forget your energy, your smiles and all of your contributions to St. Michael's. We hope you will carry the knowledge, values and friendships you acquired at our School in your hearts. As you head out to new high schools and new adventures, our best wishes, love and support go with you!
Our kindergarteners shared their advice on how to succeed at a new school in the video below. Such wise young Dragons! (You might want to have a tissue ready when you view it.)  
Congratulations to all of our Eighth Graders! 
Remember:  Once a Dragon, ALWAYS a Dragon!
Kindergarten Advice to our 8th Graders

Summer Assignments and Back To School

Whether you call it the Summer Slide or the Brain Drain, students can lose ground in reading and math over the summer break.
To help our students practice what they learned this year and exercise their brains while they are away, summer assignments and reading lists wll be posted by the end of this week. You can find this information on our website under "Community/Summer-Back to School."
Once school is out, our team will be finalizing Back to School forms. Please check the website in mid-July for updates, forms and the 2017-2018 Academic Calendar.

Click here for the survey form.  Contact Wally Kern with any questions. Thanks!
Friendly Reminders:
  • MEDICATIONS: For children/families who have medication in the office or classroom,  please stop by on Monday to pick these medications up.
