Parent Session and Upcoming Trainings for Helping Youth Dynamics

Posted on: February 9th, 2016 | School News


Dear Parents,

While I was at the Ohio Catholic Education Association Conference in November, I attended a session by Jim Bisenius that focused on helping parents and educators understand some of the social dynamics among youth pertaining to bullying. His talk included addressing specific techniques to help young people know how to respond to potential bullying situations and identifying related social patterns.

St. Michael will be offering an opportunity for our staff, parents and students to learn more about this topic on the following dates:

  • Parent Training Session – Monday, February 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in gym; All parents are welcome.
  • Student Assembly – Tuesday, February 23rd     for students in Grades 5-8   8:15 a.m.
  • Staff Meeting – Tuesday, February 23rd – Ongoing Professional Development

These opportunities should assist us in our ongoing formation and support of the whole child and provide a context for understanding how we can practice understanding, affability and genuine charity in challenging situations.  More information about what Mr. Bisenius’ training sessions typically include can be found here.

May God bless you,

Sister

Diocesan Tuition Assistance

What is diocesan tuition assistance?

Donors across the Diocese of Columbus have been generous in their gifts to tuition assistance funds. These funds are dispersed yearly to needy families through a distribution process that takes into account family need, total number of children applying for aid, and total amount of funds available that year. Families must apply each year for tuition assistance.

Who can apply for diocesan tuition assistance?

Families with children attending a Catholic elementary or a Catholic high school in the Diocese of Columbus may apply for diocesan tuition assistance. All diocesan tuition assistance applications are processed through FACTS.

How do families apply for diocesan tuition assistance?

Families interested in applying must apply online at FACTS Tuition Aid. Deadline for applying is March 15th. Contact your local school office for further information. Families must be registered in one of the diocesan schools by March 15.

Applicants should be aware that incomplete forms (lack of information, application fee, etc.) will hold up their application process

Families are notified by letter regarding their status. The diocesan decision is final. If the family chooses not to accept the award, it is returned to the diocese for further distribution.

All awards are based on financial NEED.

Local Parish/School Tuition Assistance

Who can apply for tuition assistance from their parish and/or school?

Many parishes, elementary and high schools have local tuition assistance applications and distribution processes. Some require FACTS application and others have a separate form and requirements. Interested families should contact their school office for more information.

Attention: New Altar Server Training

Posted on: January 27th, 2016 | School News


Altar servers play an important role in the celebration of Holy Mass and are an invaluable asset to the clergy and the parish. Through their ministry, altar servers have frequent interactions with our priests and deacons in a positive environment. If they are called to a religious vocation, altar serving will surely be an important influence in their journey. If they are called to family life, their experience as servers will help them to foster a love for the Mass in their own children.

Altar serving is open to all 5th-8th graders who are members of the parish and/or attend St Michael School.They must have received their first Communion and first Penance, and be enrolled in the school or the PSR program.

In committing to this ministry, perspective servers learn the order of the Mass, the aspects of the sanctuary, and the various sacred vessels used in the Mass. Perspective servers must complete 2 training sessions in the church and study a small training manual.

Please fill out the following form and return it to the main school office by February 5th if your son or daughter would like to start altar server training.
