The main purpose of the Home and School Association is to assist and support the programs and operation of St. Michael School in cooperation with the Administration.
Dues (including a directory) will be $5.00 per family per year. The business meetings are typically held on the third Monday of the month (except January and February) at 7:00 p.m. in the school’s conference room. You are cordially invited to attend these meetings.
Home and School Programs
Sign up for the Kroger Community Rewards program using your Kroger Shopper card. Once you have opened an account (or if you already have one), enter our school code- 91809. Once you have signed up for Community Rewards, a percentage of every dollar you spend at Kroger’s will be given back to St. Michael School.
In addition, the SMS Advisory Board in conjunction with the HSA, Fr. Dinovo and Sr. Mary Michael, have decided that 50% of the money you contribute through Kroger Community Rewards will be taken directly off of your tuition.
The 1st quarter we will begin to “count” money towards your tuition is the Community Rewards quarter from August 1st to October 31st. After October 31st, we will request documentation (e-mail or paper copy) of your personal contribution through the Kroger Community Rewards program in order to qualify for the tuition reduction.
The money earned for St. Michael School will be directed to our Home and School Association, and will be used for the Class Funds. Look for more information about the Community Rewards program in future school communications.
Sign up today, and begin earning money for our school and towards your tuition!

Saint Michael School is participating in the Giant Eagle “Apples for the Students” program. Contributions will go to our Home and School Association who supports our school. In the past, we have received such things as computers, library materials, Physical Education materials, and even playground balls (just to name a few).
We are hoping for the support of the community in this endeavor. To register to support Saint Michael School, go to Giant Eagle or call 1-800-474-4777. To register online, enter our School ID # 3412. You will then be asked for the 12 digit number found on your Advantage Card located underneath the bar code.
Once registered, you do not need to register again but you may actually register for up to five schools and earned points will be split equally between them.
Please help us obtain equipment for the students.
Do you shop at Target? If so, here is an easy way to support St. Michael School. Go online to Target.com then click on “card benefits” at the bottom right side of the page (under the REDcard). Scroll down and click on “Take Charge of Education” to enroll at St. Michael School (school ID is 14066, but you can also enter the zip code to find SMS). Target gives 1% of funds spent by enrollees to SMS. There are 30 currently enrollees, but with 410 families at St. Michael School, enrolling in a program like this could make a huge difference!
Partners in Parenting is a committee within the Home and School Association whose aim is to provide practical, informative programs that benefit the parents and children of St. Michael School. They utilize feedback from parents at St. Michael to determine which programs are most desired.
In the past year, Partners in Parenting has provided programs on “Dangers of the Internet”, “Emotional Intelligence: Building Resilience in Our Children” and a Study Skills/Time Management course for students.
Still to come this year are programs to build the developmental assets of our children and “Parent to Parent”, a program which emphasizes the need for creating and maintaining dialogue between children and parents as a means to prevent risky behaviors in our children.
