Welcome to St. Michael School! I am thrilled to be part of this amazing journey of growth and success for your children. In the 2021- 2022 school year, St. Michael will continue to focus on engaging families and place emphasis on building positive relationships with parents and students all through the lens of safety. The staff will continue to 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 and align curriculum and formative assessments to individualize instruction, ensuring that we provide a quality education to ALL our students. Our Angels will have high expectations set through our learning lens as we know our Angels can achieve and succeed in all areas of academic and social development. We believe in your ability Angels!

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 “Sent to Build.” 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 2021-2022 school year. We are ready to #Buildbackbetter and IGNITE the love of learning in our Angels so they continue to be UNSTOPPABLE!

Respectfully yours,

Mrs. Papp – Principal
