VBS 2021 Cancelled

Out of an abundance of caution, we are unable to plan an in-person 2021 VBS Program this year owing to the uncertainties about COVID conditions. The nature of our in-person program and the large number of campers and volunteers it takes to run this 5 day experience will make it impossible to observe the standards of precautionary measures which may be required to ensure the health and safety of all participants.

If you are interested in helping prepare and plan for VBS in the summer of 2022, please contact Sarah Neau (  
Summer Faith Camp at St. Michael the Archangel High School

Join SMHS for this Awesome WARRIOR WEEK to grow in faith, FRIENDSHIP, and fun! The camp will hosts students from grades 1-8 in the morning or afternoon during the week of July 5-9.


Two new scoreboards were installed in the STM Gym on Wednesday, May 5. The photos memorialize the installation date (5-5-2021). Again, we offer a big THANK YOU to our scoreboard sponsors:

FMM Maintenance/Construction
Premier Lanes in Gonzales

The final steps of planned renovations to the STM Gym are scheduled for the week of Memorial Day (Monday, May 31 through Friday, June 4). This is the week between the end of school and the beginning of summer camp activities. Installation of motorized blinds and placement of gym sponsor signs are scheduled to occur that week.

6th Grade Mass on Thursday
Our 6th grade students will attend mass on Thursday, May 13. Please remember proper mass day uniform (long pants and skirts) is required.
Nurse's Corner
End of the Year Pick-Up: If your child has medication(s) in the nurse's office, a parent will need to pick up their medication(s) on May 26th or May 27th before or after school in the lobby of the gymnasium. Controlled medications must be counted and signed out with Nurse Rochelle. If your child has other medical supplies (extra glasses/ contacts, braces wax, Gatorade, feminine products, etc) in First Aid, please ask them to come by and pick those up any time between now and May 27. Medications cannot be sent home with a student. Anything not picked up by June 3rd will be discarded.

Attention Fifth Grade Parents: State law requires that students entering sixth grade receive booster shots. Tdap and Meningococcal are the required vaccines. They cannot be given before the eleventh birthday, so if your child has a late birthday, a grace period will be granted and you can make an appointment for the week following his/her birthday. Please make appointments for vaccinations early in the summer, updated shot records are due by August 1. Please send an updated immunization record to school by fax (225) 275-0376, scan to, or drop off or mail to the main office. MY CHART is not an acceptable shot record. A proper immunization record must have the LA state seal on the top, have an expiration date, and be signed at the bottom. Legible copies are acceptable, but please do not send photos of immunization records because they do not print well.

Fill Out The Athletics Survey For The 2021-2022 School Year

In order to get a better idea of what sports students will be participating in next school year, I ask that you please fill out the survey that best fits your child at STM for the 2021-2022 school year. Please fill out one survey per child. This information will help me in budgeting, planning, and the hiring of coaches. The surveys will close on May 28.
