St. Michael School “Refresh”
We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
-George Bernard Shaw
We are the Saints of St. Michael School, 160 students attending a time-honored Catholic School located in Augusta, Maine, the Capitol of our great state. Our school is one of 10 remaining elementary Catholic Schools in Maine.
Like many schools over the past several years, we have faced challenges of rising costs. However, these challenges, among others have galvanized our mission to grow and to make our school better than ever. Through the love and tenacity of the St. Michael School Community our school is proudly pushing forward into the future, and we continue to do everything in our power to keep our beloved school ready and prepared to educate and spiritually nourish current and future students for many years to come.
As is the case with many schools, budgets are slim for some of the extras. Our “Go Fund Me” campaign is targeted to provide our school’s playground with a REFRESH. Newly painted lines in our outdoor basketball court, repaired cracks in our outdoor play paved areas, and a grounds REFRESH for our swing set and climbing bars area. And if our Go Fund Me campaign is very successful we want help our great students with a REFRESH of some greatly needed sports equipment, new soccer goals, and team uniforms among other updated athletic items. Activity, play, and movement all impact health and physical fitness leading to young minds that are alert, ready to learn and to give back to their communities one day.
We thank you for your support and giving us a lovely place to play…
