Dear Parents,

Thank you for all your support! We appreciate your patience this week with all of the rain. Please remember to put your vehicle in park when we are unloading and loading your children during carpool. 

This weekend, we kick off our Spirit of St. Michael Annual Fund. We are excited to announce that we have 100% participation from our School Commission and our Faculty and Staff.  All students are invited to wear their dress uniforms to a Mass this weekend. If they come to Mass in their dress uniform, they will receive a free dress pass for Monday, September 23. 

Next week we have our first Brown Bag Lunches. More information is included in the calendar section. We look forward to seeing everyone. 

Thank you again for all your support! Have a great weekend!

Blessings, 
Dr. Kathleen Cox

Service Project

Now through Friday, October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis) , our PK, Kindergarten, and First Grade are sponsoring a service project to collect items for Special Pals to help abandoned animals.  We invite all families to contribute.

Please click here  for a list of needed items.

Please click here  for more information on Special Pals.

Special Pals is a no-kill, nonprofit, Houston area animal shelter that relies on donations. Their mission is to make a measurable and sustainable difference in the pet population by offering affordable pet care services, rescue and rehabilitation, finding forever homes, and providing responsible pet ownership education.  

Pope Francis has established September 1 as an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Pope Francis wishes to remind us that we are called to be protectors of God's handiwork and this includes the care for God's creatures, great and small.  

St. Francis of Assisi also had a devotion to God that was expressed through his love for all of God's creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God.
