Message from the Principal

Dear St. Michael-St. Gabriel Families and Friends, 


Thank you to all those parents and guardians who were able to attend our Parent-Teacher Conferences, and thank you to those who provided dinner for our teachers these last two evenings. Your generosity is appreciated!


We know that there is much frustration about parent access within PowerSchool this year. Also, there is some contact information that is not being pulled for all families, and thus not all families are receiving our SchoolMessenger notifications. We are working with representatives with the Archdiocese to resolve these issues, but we are finding that what may correct an issue for one family may not correct the issue for all, so we are trying to get to each issue as quickly as we can. Please be sure to read through our weekly newsletter sent each Friday to acquire as much information for the week as you can, as we use Constant Contact to distribute these. 


Over the next four weeks, students are asked to bring in their Walk-A-Thon donations on Wednesdays, when we have our Walk-A-Thon dress down days. This way we are collecting contributions on one day during the week. This coming Wednesday, for $2, students may dress in our Superhero theme. We ask that any accessories be kept at home and that all attire be school appropriate. As a reminder, all corporate sponsorships are due to the school by Friday, September 23rd so that the company names may be placed on our t-shirts. Families, friends, and companies may donate online using the following link for donations:

Lastly, on September 29th, we will be celebrating the Feast of the Archangels, which is our annual parent-led Mass. If you are interested in participating as a reader, please use the following link to sign-up:

God Bless,

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.

TUTORING TIMES 


Below you will find the tutoring times that our teachers have available for this school year.


Tutoring Times

PreK and Morning Drop-off


We want to remind all families that the area by the basketball goals, on the opposite side of the cones during morning drop-off, is meant for PreK parents who must walk their children into the school, as well as those families who are conducting business in the main office. With an increased number of PreK students this year, we ask that you leave this area open for those families. Additional parking may be found on the north end of the parking lot near the Parish Life Center. We appreciate your cooperation.

PTA CHAIRPERSONS NEEDED

Once again, we are reaching out to our families to see if anyone may be interested in chairing or co-chairing our PTA this year. It has been over two years since we have had a lead for this committee, and the need is certainly great, especially as we kick off our Walk-A-Thon during the first quarter of the year. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Mrs. Ramos at lramos@indyarchangel.org.
PARENT VOLUNTEER HOURS

This year all families will be required to complete five volunteer hours during the course of the year. There are many ways to complete these hours by attending parent meetings and conferences, but additional opportunities are noted in the attachments found below. Remember that anyone who chooses to volunteer for an event where children are present must be Safe Parish trained. We recommend working on that training now so that you may be ready to help when you would like to chaperone or volunteer for an event.

8th Grade Trash Bag Sales

It’s that time of year when we know many of you are beginning to bag up your leaves and clean out your gardens. If you are interested in purchasing trash bags from the school office, we are selling rolls for $11 a piece. All proceeds go to fund the eighth grade class trip. 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.
