This year, we will be dining during the performance! As soon as everyone is seated with their plate, the show will go on!

We ask that parents of performers/performers arrive in Rand Hall between 4:45 and 5:00 p.m. to give the performers a chance to eat before the show begins. We'd like all performers ready to go when the audience begins to arrive.

If you plan on attending this exciting and fun event, please be sure to bring a dish to share. We ask that you sign up using the following BringIt link: http://stmichaels.bringit.bz/public/b5629a

This event is going to be a lot of fun! Please adjust your calendars with the new date.

Saint Michael School Student Collection Calendar

Uniform is required.  If unable to fulfill this commitment, please contact the office so we can help find a substitute.  The monthly student collections during Mass are one of the reasons Saint Michael School is able to keep tuition prices low. Please view this commitment as an opportunity to thank the Parish for its continuing and generous support of our school and students.                                                                                                                                                


The Google calendar (to the right) is updated frequently with all school/student events and special information for parents. Please be sure to check in often for the most up-to-date information. It's interactive! Just click on the date to view the entire event or copy to your own Google calendar!

  • Box Top$ for Education: Last year, Saint Michael School redeemed over $600 in Box Tops for Education! We'd love to redeem over $1,000 this year. We can do it with your help.
