Cold Hands & Ears: Last week numerous students did not have needed items for recess. There were sad students who could not slide today, because they did not have snow pants or mittens.

Help at School 20th: If you would be able to help on the 20th, please let me know.  I need 6 people while my staff and I have a little luncheon. Thank you.

Large Plastic Containers: Please send in containers that we can use for sick students.

 Boys Basketball:  The boys play tonight in Reed City against Trinity Lutheran. Thanks to Coach Kremsreiter and his team for sharing their time & talent.

Scrip: Last day to order Scrip for Christmas gifts will be Dec. 10th. See Mrs. McCall if you have questions about this program.  New families, Mrs. McCall will be glad to help you but our veteran families can help you too!  Check out under Current News for information from Mrs. McCall explaining our scrip program.

Poinsettia Plants/Christmas Shopping/Basketball/Parent Night Out: Once again I would like to complement our parents on Home & School activities.  You make me very proud when I see how hard you work for our school! God bless you all!

Delays & Cancellations: St. Michael School follows Chippewa Hills' delays and cancellations.  If they are closed, we are closed.  Sometimes the television will list our name, and sometimes they do not.  There will not be morning preschool on days beginning with delays.

Box Tops & Campbell Soup Labels Contest: As you know we have begun saving labels.  This year we will have 2 teams: PS & K (36 students) vs. 1 – 6 (38 students)

Contest ends January 24, 2014.  What will the prize be for the winning team?  It is a surprise!  Wait & see!

Mass Days: The 1st & 2nd graders will be planning the 9 a.m. Mass. Please join us!


Christmas is almost here! Which means that Easter is just around the corner!!  Fish Fry’s will soon be upon us!!!

I have taken a new job and will not be able to be there before 5:30 on Fridays.   I am looking for an individual (or two) to be my co-chair/s.  Ideally, they would be able to be there at 1:00 pm on Fridays and stay until I arrive.  Please feel free to call me to discuss this if you are at all interested.  Trust me, if I can do it, ANYONE can!

I am planning on having a meeting December 17th at 6:00 pm at the school to go over plans.  Bring your IDEAS.  We all work so hard; I want us to make as much profit as possible. Refreshments will be provided.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Sleds Came Out Today: I am pleased to announce as of 12-9-13 the best sliders are Erin & Sohia and Brynn & Ethan.  They were 2 people teams sliding, and they went the furthest of ALL students sliding in the school!

 Off Code: $1 per student for each Off Code day Wednesday, Dec. 18, and Jan.22 for the people suffering in the Philippians.  This will be our Catholic Schools project, and our classmates in grades 5 & 6 will take these funds for our school as they represent us at the Catholic Schools Week Liturgy at the cathedral.
