Warmest Wishes for a Wonderful Thanksgiving Break! See you again on Monday, November 26.

 The Spirit of St. Michael Annual Fund
Did you know that tuition only covers a portion of the cost to educate each St. Michael student? The Spirit of St. Michael Annual Fund closes this gap and sustains the life of our school making it possible for our school to provide engaged learning, innovative curriculum, advanced technology, and the highest quality Catholic education experience for all students. All contributions to the SMCS Annual Fund are tax-deductible.
