Message from the Principal
Dear St. Michael-St. Gabriel Families and Friends, 

While we may have fewer weeks left in the school year, the remaining weeks are becoming increasingly busy as we plan for our field days and final field trips of the year. Our eighth graders received their final exam cards this past Monday, and on Monday, May 16th, our sixth and seventh graders will receive their cards. If your child does not receive an exam card, please be sure to reach out to Mrs. Areal to ensure that all financial accounts are up-to-date. Our eighth graders will begin their final exams next Friday, May 20th, and the rest of Junior High will begin their exams on May 24th. 

May 18th is our last PTA dress down day and also our last 1:30 dismissal day. On Wednesday, for $2, students may dress in appropriate summer attire. Note that both May 25th and June 1st will be regular dismissal days. 

We still have about a dozen current students who are not re-enrolled for next year, and we have three grades that already have wait lists for next year. These include PreKindergarten, Grade 3, and Grade 4. If you know your child will be returning next year, and you have yet to register your student, please do so quickly. Families have had since January to complete registration, and we simply cannot hold spaces because of past enrollment. 

God Bless,
Mrs. Ramos
Faith & Service
Prayer for Students

Lord our God,
in your wisdom and love
you surround us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your Spirit upon these students
and fill them with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may
devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you,
the source of all knowledge. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R/. Amen.
Field Days - Volunteers Needed

This year we will be hosting two Field Days - one for our elementary students and one for our Junior High students. Our Junior High Field Day will be held on Wednesday, May 25th, and our Elementary Field Day will be held on Thursday, May 26th. We will use the morning to set up for the day and begin activities after lunch at 11:00.

An initial order form was sent home with all students this week, if you are interested in purchasing any.  We do sell these bags throughout the year as well, so you may consider purchasing some in the spring as well.
