2023-2024 School Year Calendar

Tentative 2024-2025 School Year Calendar

Message from the Principal

Dear St. Michael-St. Gabriel Families and Friends, 

Next week, students in Grades 2 and 3 will complete their last NWEA assessments. Once complete, our teachers will spend some time comparing the students’ scores from the winter to measure their growth in reading and math. Later on April 16th, Cardinal Ritter High School will host a mini-field day for any student who met their reading and math growth goal on these exams. Students who met their goal in one area will be recognized at another assembly at school. 

Throughout this next month, students in Grades 2-8 will also be taking ARK, which stands for Assessment of Religious Knowledge. This exam will ask students grade-level knowledge questions about the Catholic faith based on what they have learned in their religion classes. Exams for our second and third graders will take about 25-35 minutes, whereas the assessments for our junior high students will take closer to an hour or hour and a half. 

On Wednesday, April 3rd, we will hold an 8th Grade parent meeting to discuss end-of-the-year activities. This meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. and be held in the school cafeteria. 

Finally, as a reminder, there is no school on Monday, April 1st, as we celebrate Easter Monday. We wish all of you a very Happy Easter weekend!

God Bless,

Mrs. Ramos

Queridos Padres y Amigos de San Miguel-San Gabriel, 

La próxima semana, los estudiantes de 2 y 3 grado van a tomar las últimas evaluaciones de NWEA. Una vez que terminen, nuestros maestros dedicarán tiempo a comparar los puntajes de los estudiantes durante el invierno para medir su crecimiento en lectura y matemáticas. Más tarde, el 16 de abril, la Escuela Preparatoria Cardinal Ritter organizará un mini dia de campo para los estudiantes que hayan alcanzado su meta de crecimiento en lectura y matemáticas en estos exámenes. Los estudiantes que alcanzaron su meta en un área serán reconocidos en otra asamblea en la escuela.

A lo largo del próximo mes, los estudiantes de 2 a 8 grado también tomarán ARK, que significa la Evaluación de conocimientos religiosos. En este examen se  les hará a los estudiantes preguntas de conocimiento del nivel de su grado sobre la fe católica basadas en lo que han aprendido en sus clases de religión. Los exámenes para nuestros estudiantes de segundo y tercer grado tomarán entre 25 y 35 minutos, mientras que las evaluaciones para nuestros estudiantes de secundaria tomarán más cerca de una hora u hora y media.

El miércoles 3 de abril tendremos una reunión para los padres de octavo grado para discutir las actividades de fin de año. Esta reunión comenzará a las 6:00 p.m. y se llevará a cabo en la cafetería de la escuela.  

Finalmente, como recordatorio, no habrá clases el lunes 1 de abril, ya que celebramos el Lunes de Pascua. Les deseamos un feliz fin de semana de Pascua!

Dios los bendiga,

La Sra. Ramos

Prayer for Students

Lord our God,
in your wisdom and love
you surround us with the mysteries of the universe.
Send your Spirit upon these students
and fill them with your wisdom and blessings.
Grant that they may
devote themselves to their studies
and draw ever closer to you,
the source of all knowledge. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

R/. Amen.

An initial order form was sent home with all students this week, if you are interested in purchasing any.  We do sell these bags throughout the year as well, so you may consider purchasing some in the spring as well.
