Back to School Planning
Dear St. Michael's families, 
I hope this note finds you and your family enjoying some summertime fun with each other and loved ones. As the calendar turned to August, I wanted to reach out to make sure that you have everything you will need as you begin to think about Back to School time. No rush, by all means, soak up all that summer has to offer. However, all around campus, faculty, staff and friends of the School have been busily working to prepare for the 2017–18 school year. Below please find important updates and information. 
As always, the folks in the School office are here to help. If you have questions, please reach out at 804-272-3514.
We look forward to seeing you in late August!
   
With warm regards,
Michael G. Turner
Headmaster

Directory Updates Needed
Did you move this summer? Has your email or phone number changed? Do you want School communications to go to a particular email address?
Please send any changes by Friday, September 1, as we are finalizing the School directory. Returning families need only to review their current listing (in last year's directory) and forward all new/corrected information (e.g., address, email, phone numbers, etc.) to Erbie Godwin at egodwin@stmschool.net.

Hot Lunch
St M offers families the opportunity to purchase hot lunch. I'm happy to announce we have partnered again with the following vendors: Ellwood-Thompson, Frank's Ristorante and Chick-fil-A.
  • Due to the company's commitment to and experience with providing healthy food that kids will actually eat with minimal ecological impact, Elwood-Thompson will serve as the primary vendor again this year.

  • Frank’s Ristorante will continue as our vendor for the popular Tuesday pizza day. Chick-fil-A will be available one day a month as a treat.

Families will be able to select and pay for meals online, and have a digital record of their order.
A separate email will arrive soon with further details on the program, as well as details on signing up at Boonli.com (formerly orderlunches.com).
