The final week of the summer and a look towards the first days of school
Saint Michael's Minutes
School begins in only five days! I pray all are looking forward to a fantastic year!
Principal's Notes
Dear parents and families,

Summer has come to an end for the faculty and staff of Saint Michael who have come together this week to welcome our new members (myself included) and begin preparations for the arrival of the students. Monday is fast approaching and I hope all our students are looking forward to a new year of faith and fun. 

Fr. Drummond and I are thrilled to meet the students on Monday and all the parents at Back to School Night on Tuesday and Thursday. If you have any questions about the start of the year (supplies, uniforms, procedures, etc.) please call our front office and Mrs. Kennedy or Mrs. Carlstrom will help guide you.
