Dear Parents and Families,

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Below are some quick notes for the upcoming week:
  • Monday, 1/7 - 2/1: Scantron Testing
  • Wednesday, 1/21: Auction Meeting 6:00 in Cafeteria
  • Friday, 1/25: Interims
  • Monday - Friday, 1/28 - 2/1: Catholic Schools Week

We will have Scantron testing through February 1st. The schedule is:

  • 6th and 4th grade: 8:15 - 9:15, 1/8, 1/10, 1/22
  • 7th and 5th grade: 8:15- 9:15, 1/9, 1/1, 1/23
  • 3rd: 9:15 - 10:15, 1/11, 1/18. 8:15 - 9:15, 1/16

Due to two hour delays, we will be continuing Scantron testing through February 1st. We will continue with our pattern of Tuesdays and Thursdays for 6th and 4th, Mondays and Wednesdays for 7th and 5th, and Third grade on Fridays and other week days once other classes finish.

There have been some questions about the nature of the Scantron test. I encourage parents to visit our website under the Parents Tab: Scantron Testing for more information. You can also read the Parent Guide to Performance Testing packet by clicking this text.

Our Auction Committee is meeting this Wednesday, January 30th at 6:00 PM in the school cafeteria. Please join us to help plan this important and fun-filled event.

Miss Cortright is looking for volunteers to be judges at this year's science fair, which will be held on Wednesday, February 13th from 630pm to 9pm. You do not need a background in science to be a judge, though having an interest in science would help! If you think that you or someone you know would be interested in participating as a judge for the science fair, please contact Miss Cortright as soon as possible at  emily.cortright@stmikes22003.org .

Tours have already started and many families are interested in joining St. Michaels next year. Please spread the word about our Open Houses January 31st and February 3rd. Any interested families (especially Kindergarten and PreK) can contact the office or look for our flyer which is shared below and in the Church.

God bless,

Daniel Cinalli
