Celebrating a 47 Year Legacy of Leadership
For 47 years, Mr. Hubbard's dedication and vision have guided St. Michael’s to become the well-balanced learning community it is; where students, families and staff share a sense of belonging and where students are encouraged to take risks in learning and self-discovery.
Mr. Hubbard has overseen the growth of St. Michael’s both fiscally and physically --with enrollment increasing over 300% and thirteen construction projects completed, including the Singleton Campus, as well as working to have the Middle School designated as an International Baccalaureate World School.
The faculty and staff value the wisdom and guidance that Mr. Hubbard has provided through the years. Ed’s leadership style and talent for identifying people’s gifts and allowing them to do their jobs successfully have shaped a strong team and built a foundation for the School to be successful in its future years. 
Thank you Mr. Hubbard for your legacy of leadership!
 Important Announcements:
Joining Hands to Celebrate a Legacy 
This week, all of our students will complete a kindness project called "Hands of Kindness" that celebrates Mr. Hubbard's selfless service and 47 years of leadership at St M. 
Visit stmschool.net/legacy to view examples of the 47 acts of kindness completed in honor of Mr. Hubbard. 
Remember to share any Acts of Kindness that you experience by: emailing it to kindness@stmschool.net, tweeting it to #kindSTM  or posting it on Facebook and sharing it to our page.
May I Have This Dance?
The Middle School Semi-Formal dance is Friday, May 15th from 7-9 p.m. $7.00 at the door. Attire: Girls: dresses or skirts; Boys: dress shirt, tie and pants (no jeans please). Dust off your dancing shoes and let's have some fun! 
Please note that cell phones are discouraged at School dances. This helps to ensure the privacy of all students attending and limits the urge to take photos or video while at the dance.  If a student needs to bring a cell phone to the dance, the phone should be kept in the student’s locker during the event and can be retrieved once the dance is over.  In the event of emergency, parents may contact their children by calling Mr. Jones directly at 804-387-0773 during dance hours.  Students will have access to the conference room phone as well should they need to make a call during the dance.  Thanks for your understanding.
