Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

     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:

 

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE: Tuesday, April 22 is a regular school day. (Make up day for snow weather days off.)
  • Reminder: at SMA School all visitors must go to the school office first. No one may go though the school without first registering and receiving a visitor’s badge. A driver’s license ID may be required to pick up students. This is an important security issue.
  • Thank you to everyone who re-registered so far! SMA School re-registration reminder ~ it is very important to register your children now for the 2014/2015 School Year. This guarantees you a place for your child. Thank you!
  • Look for several articles in the Bucks County Courier Times on our school and parish!
  • SMA “Night at the Museum” was awesome! Thanks to all and Mrs. “O”.
  • Our SMA Family Math Night was wonderful. Thanks goes to Mrs. Brandt, Ms. Kallok, Mrs. Bowski, and Mrs. Stan for setting the event up. The children did a great job running and playing the many math activities.
  • SMA School will present "The Magical Lamp of Aladdin" 7:00 PM (Saturday, April 12, 2014) at Conwell Egan High School Tickets are on sale now. Student (14 and under) $3.00 Adult $7.00 Thank you!

 

  • I have sent home in the Communication Envelope several Home Link Prayer Services. Do you find them useful? Let me know what you think.

 

  • Security Update: All staff now have picture ID badges.
  • Third Trimester Progress reports will be issued on April 11th.  (Last one!) Remember if a student fails a subject as a final grade, he/she must attend summer school or receive 30 hours of tutoring in that subject.
  • Important note: Teacher roll books are legal documents and may be subpoenaed as evidence in a court case. Any student who is absent or late needs to bring a note to school the day he/she returns. The note must include a reason why she/he was absent or late. (This is needed in addition to the phone call.) TY!

 

  • Volunteer Appreciation Week Begins 4/7- Reading Olympics on the 10th - -SMA Rosary Club meets 4/14 – SMA Casual Dress Day (Easter Colors) on the 15th - Easter Prayer Service 9:30 on the 16th – Easter on the 20th! – SMA Earth Day Expo and Special Lunch on the 24th – 7 Grade Class Trip on the 25th –First Eucharist Prayer and Practice on the 26th - 4th Grade Class Trip on the 30th – and Father DiIorio's birthday on the 20th!

 

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!

 God’s light!

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.
