Faithful Beginnings Summer Program
Faithful Beginnings at St. Michael Catholic School is excited to launch our Preschool Summer Program!  We have spent countless hours planning a fun, engaging, educational preschool program.  Registration was opened for families that are registered for the 2018-2019 school year.
Mrs. Melanie Brower will be our lead supervisor throughout the summer.  I will be joining in on the fun a couple days a week.  We are working on staffing assistant teacher positions as well.
If your child will be attending kindergarten in the fall, they would qualify to attend Summer Adventures Plus, our school-age program.  
If know of anyone interested, please pass this along!  We will be maxing our program at 18-20 students per day

ambassadorFamily Ambassadors Program

The goal of the ambassador program is to ensure new families feel welcomed and prepared as they enter the school year. The ambassador family will create a personal relationship with new students as part of the St. Michael Catholic School Community. They will also assist with on-boarding of new families during back to school nights and school sponsored events.

We are working hard to build a solid foundation to ensure the success of this program. If you are interested in being an ambassador family, please email
