Greetings and Happy Spring! Super news!!! Pending approval of the recommendations by Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap, Saint Michel the Archangel is open! If you have not registered yet for the 2014/2015 school year, now’s the time!
I spoke with Father Dilorio and he asked me to spread the word that you may register now without a down payment and pay it at a later time.
We have many new plans in the works for the new school year! I am presently exploring online grading as a new feature to add to our already great school.
I also want to express my gratitude to all those who have contributed to such a wonderful year so far at Saint Michel the Archangel Catholic School. We have come a long way in a short amount of time. That is a credit to our excellent faculty, students, volunteers, and you our great parents!
Remember this month is important academically as we are now entering the final trimester of the year. (Where did the time go?) Students should be reminded to stay focused on their studies and do their best as we enter the home stretch.
Below are some of the happenings at our school:
Finally, this month we celebrate the holiest days of our Christian calendar. What a special joy to commemorate Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection. Let us remember that His victory over death on the cross and rising to new life is a victory for each of us.
Let me wish everyone a joyous Easter Season for you and your families!
