September 2019 – Principals Newsletter


JOY is STRENGTH! What a wonderful way to start the new school year! Finding Jesus in our hearts and sharing his love with everyone we encounter. It is in being Jesus to others where real strength is found. The St. Michael faculty, staff, and administration are grateful to all of our parents who partner with us to help educate and form our students as committed disciples of Christ.

We were blessed this school year to begin with the opening of our new Multi-Purpose Building. Bishop Duca, Dr. Melanie Palmisano, our Chaplain Father Paul Gros, the Edward L. Rispone family, and many of our support-ers and stakeholders were present in August for the blessing of the building and our first Mass in our new facility. After Mass, students enjoyed a picnic lunch, while guests were treated to refreshments and a tour of the building. We continued to celebrate the start of the school year with Popsicle Day, Club Day, and our Back to School Dance. The academic successes of our students from last year were recognized and celebrated at our Fall Honors Assembly. At that assembly, National Honor Society members were inducted during a special ceremony. We look forward to celebrating more of our achievements as the school year unfolds.

This beginning of a new school year reminds each of us how fortunate we are to be an important part in offering a first-rate, Catholic education to the young men and young women entrusted to our care. Please pray for our students, our parents, and our teachers as we grow and learn in this wonderful school community rooted in Catholic tradition and gospel values.

Yours in Christ,
Ellen B. Lee, Principal
