Welcome to St. Michael School! I am thrilled to be part of this amazing journey of growth and success for your children. In the 2020 – 2021 school year, St. Michael will focus on engaging families and place emphasis on building positive relationships with parents and students all through the lens of safety. The staff will work hard to support all of the public health recommendations to ensure that we are offering a safe place for our Angels to learn face to face. We will continue to increase student growth and achievement in all subject areas. We will continue to align curriculum and formative assessments to individualize instruction, ensuring that we provide a quality education to ALL our students. And finally, we will be looking at increasing our efforts recognizing positive behaviors among our students all through a faith lens.

As your principal, student academic success is my number one priority, while ensuring your child feels safe during their learning experiences. I believe that we have many resources to meet the wide range of needs of our students. The curriculum is rigorous and consistently measured to make sure all students are understanding topics being presented. Professional development is offered frequently to ensure staff members are up to date with current teaching practices. Provisions for students with special needs are developed and monitored daily and supported by all members of our learning teams.

This year we are “Gathered to Become.” I believe that all students have strengths and that it is our unique responsibility to bring them out for all to see. We are in a building with future artists, mathematicians, scientists, athletes, engineers and whatever else a young student mind desires. I will do my best to nurture those hidden talents and boost the motivation to be the very best Angels our school has ever seen.

Lastly, I look forward to ensuring that we keep God at the forefront of all we do. After all, it is through Him that we can live to our fullest potential. I look forward to a great, positive year with your children. It is a privilege to serve your children and we look forward to watching them grow each day. Parents are first and foremost the most important aspect in student learning. A strong partnership between the school and home is paramount. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need anything. Here’s to a great 2020-2021 school year. We are #BetterTogether Proud home of the Angels!

Respectfully yours,

Mrs. Papp – Principal
