Directions on how to complete are below.

 

*Put your family name on the felt (horizontal position) and decorate it however you like. See example below.  All squares must be returned by Friday, 1/27/17.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

     When adverse weather conditions warrant, the Parochial and Public Schools may have to close early.  Neither the Pastor nor the Principal of Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic

 

School makes this decision.  We, like you, must listen to the local media outlets for the announcement.  SMA School follows Bristol Township decisions. Please listen to KYW for the

 

announced closing time.  Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic School will close at that announced time. There is a new feature for emergency

 

  1.    If

 

the announced closing time occurs during the Lunch Period, students who normally go home for lunch will be asked to stay home.  SMA School signed up for

 

School Messenger.  This means a phone call and/or email message will be sent to notify you of any dismissal time changes.  Parents/Guardians should not pick

 

up students before the announced closing time.  This helps prevent further disruptions for the children.  Do not call the school or rectory.  Please check our web

 

site (www.sma-pa.org) and the Special Announcement page for details.  Please note: In the event of early dismissal CARES will be cancelled.   

 

     Every child should be aware of what he/she should do in the event of an emergency early school closing.   SMA School should have your

 

child's EMERGENCY EARLY SCHOOL CLOSING PLAN FORM that was due the first Friday, first week of school.

 

            Thank You And God Bless!   Mr. Stephen D. DiCicco Principal

SMA Pre-K3 / Pre-K4 / K Program Information

 

 

 

Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic School offers two Pre-Kindergarten programs, one for children two years away from Kindergarten (Pre-K3), one for children who will be entering Kindergarten the following school year (Pre-K4) and Kindergarten.

 

Our Pre-K 3/4/ K Programs offer children a nurturing learning environment that is caring, challenging, hands on, and academically developmental. Since we believe our children should enjoy their time here, there are also many fun activities.Appropriate child-centered experiences are provided to stimulate inquisitiveness and to develop the child’s self-assurance and independence.
Our programs provide many hands-on-learning experiences in an academic readiness environment. Language is developed through a multitude of methods. Songs, plays, poems, and stories are just some of them. Centers are provided where children can experience a variety of sensory experiences in an individual or group setting. Gross and fine motor skills are developed through physical activities, play, and the creative arts. Through songs, storytelling of scripture, prayers, games, and art activities, the children learn about God's great love for each of us. Pre K 3 / Pre K 4 and Kindergarten are also part of the NDS Hot Lunch Program. (Please note: soda and fast foods are prohibited in our program.) Our children will also be given technology instruction in our computer lab.

 

To provide the most up-to-date communication, the Pre-K 3 / 4 / Programs have their own websites linked to the school’s main website at www. sma-pa.org at the Faculty Page.  The Kindergarten program is also  linked.

 

If you are interested in registering your child in one of our fine programs, please call our school at 215-943-0222,

For Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, be our protection against the
wickedness and snares of the devil; may god
rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, o
Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of
God, thrust into hell satan and all evil spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin
of souls. Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in
battle, that we may not perish in the fearful
judgement.

Saint Michael, first champion of the
kingship of Christ, pray for us.

God our Father, in a wonderful way you
guide the work of angels and human being.
May those who serve you constantly in
heaven keep our lives safe from all harm on
earth. Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.

Pledge for Peace

With the help of Jesus, I pledge for this day to have a peaceful heart and a peaceful mind. I will try to keep peace in my school, in my home and in my world.
