ANGEL UPDATE – MAY 20-24

We would like to wish all of our Angel families a wonderful Victoria Day Weekend!  Just a reminder that there is no school on Monday.

EQAO STARTS THIS WEEK!

EQAO testing starts this week for our Grade 3 and 6 students. This standardized test is to aid educators as they work to improve classroom instruction and overall elementary education in Ontario. It helps form policy and it helps schools identify challenges in their school improvement plans. The St. Michael staff have been working very hard to prepare your son/daughter for the upcoming test weeks.  Please be reminded to send your son/daughter to school each day to ensure that they complete the test in the time given.

GOLD FOR ST. MICHAEL!

We are so excited to announce that we have achieved the GOLD Standard for our Healthy School Certification!  Staff and students have been working hard to ensure that we are a Healthy School.  We look at factors such as environmental, mental well being, physical activity, food and nutrition and overall wellness.  We are so proud that after all of the reporting and implementation of healthy school initiatives – we achieved the GOLD standard!  Amazing accomplishment for our Angels!

JK ORIENTATION NIGHT

JK Orientation Night is on Thursday May 23rd starting at 6pm.  This is a night on which parents who have registered their children for September can come and see the school and ask questions about their children entering their first year of education.  We look forward to welcoming all of our future Angels!

STEAM CHALLENGE

We were so excited to be invited to participate in the STEAM Challenge held this week at St. Benedict School.  St. Michael School was led by our staff champion Mrs. Starr to work within a set timeframe to create art using only recyclable materials.  Our students were diligent as they progressed through the task. A fun day was had by all. Take a look at the link below as we were featured on CTV News – what a great accomplishment!
