Letter From the Principal

Dear Families, 


This week Mr. Hoffman and I spent a day at the Archdiocesan Kentucky Center for Safe Schools Workshop.  It was time well spent as we work to make sure we are doing everything in our power to make our campus and school facilities safe.  Thank you to the many who called or emailed about being a part of the Safety Committee.  This committee will work together each year to ensure we are always up to date with protocols and procedures mandated by KCSS.  You may notice that all school staff are now wearing photo ID badges with St. Michael lanyards. As a reminder, all school visitors must enter in the main doors, check in the front office and wear visitor badges at all times. We continue to work to address the recommendations from KCSS. 


With all of this warm weather it is hard to even think about the possibility of missing a day of school due to inclement weather.  As I listened to the weather forecast this morning I heard "possible snow" on Sunday.   Please remember, if school is closed due to weather, it will be a distance learning day. 


Thank you for your kindness, care and openness to new ideas.  I love working with your children and want only the best for all students.  If you have questions about next year, please ask the person who can provide factual information regarding those questions.  Our doors are open, and we welcome your input and questions.  


When days are tough with my own kids, I always try to remember the following:  Laughter is the key to survival during the special stresses of the child-rearing years. If you can see the delightful side of your assignment, you can also deal with the difficult.  A Cheerful heart is good medicine. Proverbs 17:22


Have a wonderful week, 


Mrs. Tackett

Teachers Get Pie in the Face for a Good Cause on Pi Day

Pi Day is celebrated around the world on March 14 (3/14).  The Greek symbol Pi (∏) is known to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter.  The value of Pi is fascinating as its decimal is infinite and non-repeating.  This year our teachers  decided to add a little fun to Pi Day.  Several teachers challenged their students to raise money for Cross Catholic Outreach.  The student in each participating class that raised the most money got to pie his/her teacher's face.  A total of $367 was raised to donate.


Respect Life Club Collects Items for Refugee Family

St. Michael Parish is teaming up with St. Albert and Holy Trinity to adopt a refugee family from Sudan this spring, and we need your help.  The St. Michael School Respect Life club wanted to contribute as well.  They are asking school families to donate non-perishable food items and cleaning supplies for this family.  The family of seven plans to arrive March 30.  They also will be preparing meals for the family for their first week in their new home.  Items may be dropped off in the school atrium.
