There has been a change to the lunch menu for this Friday. Instead of our regular "pack day" due to the fishy fry, we will have Giovanni's cheese pizza available for students. This will be counted as a regular lunch charge for our students. To help us order the correct amount of pizza, we will take lunch count for Friday on Thursday. Thank you.
Elouise's cousin Miles visited SMS today for World Down Syndrome Day! At morning prayer we talked about the importance of awareness, inclusion, rights and dignity of all people. We also took a few pictures! On Thursday we will have a guest speaker who will answer questions and speak more with our students about Down Syndrome. Thanks to all who donated and participated today!
This is a reminder to our entire student body and staff to be sure to wear your World Down Syndrome Day shirts to school tomorrow, with appropriate jeans or shorts. T-shirts were sent home with every SMS student last week. Students are also encouraged to bring in a donation for Down Syndrome Awareness. This is a link to the article we posted about it a few days ago. Thank you! https://www.stmichaelripley.com/article/674201

Dear parents, The weather has been all over the place, as often is the case in March. We have had some warm days, so students are allowed to wear uniform shorts with uniform polo shirts now. We have had some issues lately regarding sweathirts and hoodies. Please be sure your children are wearing St Michael sweathirts and hoodies. If you are unsure about the uniform policy, please refer to the handbook. Thank you for your cooperation!
Be sure to check today's white folders which will be with the youngest student in each family. They contain: 2nd Trimester Report Cards Spring Picture Order Forms Permission slips for Thursday's trip to MCTC for "Alice in Wonderland" which should be signed and sent back in the white folder on Wednesday.
This week's menu with weekly specials!

Isaiah and Emma brought me "green eggs and ham". I asked them why? They said, "because its Doc Seuss's birthday!"

$10 K Giveaway Update: We have now RAISED $4,730 in the SMS $10K Giveaway! We are getting closer to our goal of raising $20,000, but we still need to sell about 765 more tickets to get there. We have had 10 families sell at least 30 tickets, which means their 2022 registration is waived. Huge thank you to everyone has sold tickets so far. Although tickets can be sold up to April 8, people have more chances to win if their tickets are in before Friday, March 4, the first $250 drawing.
This is a gentle reminder that students should still be using personal water bottles. Lately we have been going through a ton of cups. Not only is the waste an issue, but cups spill easily. We have these awesome bottle fillers for our students and wont be going back to the old water fountains. Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated!
Congratulations to SMS 3rd grader Avery Poole who competed in the Scripps Spelling Bee today representing our entire school. She didn't win, but we are proud of her, and she did an amazing job representing SMS as a 3rd grader! great job Avery!
