Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome back to school! It was wonderful to see all our returning students and welcome all our new friends to Saint Michael School for the 2018-19 school year! You may have noticed that your favorite weekly newsletter is arriving on Monday instead of Tuesday. This is not in error; This year the St. Michael's Minutes will be emailed every Monday to better give information on the upcoming weekly schedule.
Below are some quick notes for the upcoming week:
- Tuesday, 8/28, 7:00 PM: 1st - 3rd Back to School Night in the All Purpose Room
- Wednesday, 8/29, 7:00 PM: 4th - 8th Back to School Night in the Cafeteria
- Friday, 8/31: 11:30 Dismissal (AfterCare is open)
- Monday, 9/3: No School, Labor Day
- Tuesday, 9/4: BeforeCare Opens (6:45 AM)
Parents can begin dropping off students at 7:15 AM this week out front of the Senior Building (Door #1). BeforeCare registration forms are being sent home today, and beginning next week parents are able to drop off as early as 6:45 AM for BeforeCare.
During afternoon dismissal, cars will not be allowed to enter the parking lot while students are outside the building during first pickup. The parking lot will open 20 minutes prior to the end of the day (usually 2:50, today 11:10) and most likely will be closed off between 3:08-3:15. We will have a staff member in the rear of the parking lot, and once students have begun dismissal, all late cars will have to wait until second pick-up. This is for student safety. Also, please remember there is no parking in the Church Parking Lot during dismissal. This once again is a safety concern. If you have any question please call the front office.
I look forward to seeing everyone and sharing some of the exciting new initiatives and other updates to our school at Back to School Night over the next few nights. They will begin with a brief presentation, followed by time in the classrooms. A schedule for the 4th - 8th grade night will be sent home on Wednesday.
Please be sure to return all forms that came home today or will be coming home this week. The lunch schedule will be sent home today, and hot lunch begins on September 10th. Please be sure to send your child(ren) in with lunches as there is no Hot Lunch option.
Our Middle School Students will now have Physical Education class twice a week. They will have this class on Tuesday and Thursday, and therefore should wear their PE uniforms to school every Tuesday and Thursday (we will notify parents and students if there is a change).
