Last Day of School
Mass at 8:15 am / Dress Uniform Required
After mass, students will return to the classrooms for a treat provided by PLUS. Yearbooks will also be distributed. After the treat, students may leave with their parents. The remaining students will be kept until early dismissal for the summer at 11 a.m. There will be no Kidventure.
Dismissal at 11/11:15 am (No Kidventure)
Second dismissal cars may not begin lining up until at least 3:10 pm. Arriving before this time blocks the entrance to the school and creates traffic congestion on Sage. All parents who arrive before 3:10 pm will be asked to exit the campus and line up on Sage. Traffic and security officers will be monitoring this. Thank you for cooperation with this rule.
The 8th Grade Moms Luncheon is a long-standing tradition at St. Michael Catholic School. The luncheon is set for Wednesday, May 22nd at 11:30 am and is hosted by P.L.U.S.. We are looking forward to celebrating our wonderful eighth grade mothers.
A big thank you to our librarian, Dr. Bliss, and our Spring Book Fair chairs, Katrina Lueckenhoff and Sarah Sprengnether, for another successful book fair!!
Our New Family Coffee took place on Monday, May 13th. Our chairs, Rachel Regan, April Salazar, and Laura Filippone, planned a very welcoming event for our new families. If you were assigned to be a sponsor family please remember to reach out to your new family throughout the summer as questions are sure to arise. Our New Family Chairs will be in contact periodically and will ask you to forward on important information.
- If you were a committee chair please remember to turn in your binder to Colleen Lewis or Lisa Marre before Memorial Day Weekend. This will allow us time to prep them for next year's chairs. Binders can be left in the workroom.
- The deadline to turn in receipt(s) for reimbursement is Tuesday, May 21st. Please reach out to Colleen Lewis directly if you have questions or concerns.
- Head Room Parents of PK-5th grade please let our 2019-2020 P.L.U.S. Chair, Lisa Marre, know the Back-to-School Party date and plan for your grade prior to Memorial Day Weekend so we can have the information communicated to the school.
