St. Michael’s is partnering with The Gordley Group, a marketing company, to begin effectively advertising our school. Earlier today (Monday) they filmed our kindergarten/8th grade buddies, all school chapel, as well as K-3 music, science, math, lunch, and language arts. They will be designing video footage, radio ads, and implementing web based strategies to enhance our school site.
I am so thrilled to announce that the northwest construction is completely done! In fact, I am writing to you now from the new lower school director’s office. Come on by and say hello! I hope to have it looking presentable in the coming weeks. The kids have been weighing in on things I should decorate it with. Many of their suggestions have been related to the UofA – they know me so well!
Thank you to all those who have already turned in their math-a-thon packets. This Wednesday is the deadline for turning in money. You may turn it in to your child’s classroom teacher, or to the front office. Thanks!
Fee Dress ($2) Wednesday
We have a K-8 fee dress day this Wednesday. Students may wear relaxed dress in exchange for $2. All proceeds will be going to the WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue. Special thanks to Elia Lientz (3rd grader in Mr. Gould’s class) who researched the organization and presented her ideas to a group of teachers a few weeks ago. Way to go Elia!! Lower School and Upper School will be joining forces on this one!
Valentine’s Day – Friday
This Friday is Valentine’s Day!! We have school wide relaxed dress – Valentine’s Day themed attire. It will also be the end of our 2nd trimester.
Have a wonderful week!
Lower School Director (K-4)
