Stuffies Sleepover at SMS!
We hosted almost 60 stuffies for the night!
They were collected at the end of the school day and played games in the gym and the library, worked on art, watched a movie and had bedtime stories. A special thank you to Mrs. Fab and Rocco for spending the night in the library with the stuffies and making sure they made it back to their students in the morning!
We had so much fun hosting the stuffies and they were on their best behavior for the night.
Please enjoy the video of all the Stuffie Sleepover fun!

Registration is Open for our 2023 Summer Art Camp!
We will be hosting Art Camp this summer with Mrs. Hardy at St. Michael School available to enrolled students of St. Michael School who are entering grades 4 through 8. This Camp is separate from the Summer Enrichment Program.
It is a camp that is offered on six separate days over six weeks and will take place on Wednesday, June 21, 28, July 12, 19, 25 and Tuesday, August 1. These dates do not interfere with any field trips offered through the Summer Enrichment Program so students enrolled in the Summer Enrichment Program may also participate in the Art Camp. This camp will begin at 8:00 am and end at 12:00 pm. The cost is $90 for the 6 weeks. There must be a minimum of 8 students to run this camp. Snack will be provided to all Art Camp participants and is included in the cost of the camp. Students who participate in just the Art Camp will be picked up at the Lincoln #2 door at 12 noon. Students who also participate in the Summer Enrichment Program can simply join other participants at school after Art Camp. Registration and payment, checks payable to St. Michael School, must be submitted to the school office no later than Friday, June 16.

We realize that by embracing individual differences and creating a sense of mutual respect, compassion and understanding, we will instill in all students an enthusiasm for learning and a realization of their Christ-guided place in the world.
Important Information Regarding School Uniforms
All students must be in uniform every day. This helps students develop pride in themselves and in their personal appearance. Uniforms ensure modesty, safety, and school cohesiveness. Uniform apparel (pants, shorts, jumpers, skirts, skorts, shirts, tie, sweatshirts, sweaters, sweater vests, fleece and Phys. Ed. uniforms) must be purchased through Flynn O'Hara at 1-800-441-4122 or on their website.
Congratulations to SMS's own, Mrs. Jennifer Hoffman, Maine Catholic Schools Teacher of the Year!
Bishop Robert Deeley and Superintendent of Maine Catholic Schools, Ms. Marianne Pelletier, presented Mrs. Hoffman with the award during a capstone ceremony for Catholic Schools Week that included heart-felt messages from students and recognition from Principal Cullen. Mrs. Hoffman has worked as a full-time teacher in Catholic schools in Augusta for more than 25 years, first at St. Augustine School and then, after the merger that consolidated St. Augustine and St. Mary into one school, at SMS for the last 13 years. She follows the Hartford Curriculum as the head of the Language Arts department, teaching Grammar, Writing, Reading, and Comprehension to all middle schoolers every day. She oversees our Accreditation Committee, tirelessly organizing the entire staff toward the goal of becoming a NEASC accredited school. As SMS's vice-principal, Mrs. Hoffman is always ready to offer support and guidance to teachers and students, even taking up to the role of principal for months at a time in addition to her other responsibilities whenever Mr. Kevin Cullen's health has required it.
What really sets Mrs. Hoffman apart as an educator, a colleague, and a human being is that she truly lives her faith all day, every day, inspiring other teachers, staff and students to follow her lead. Instead of pushing people up the hill, Mrs. Hoffman is the first one charging up, calmly yet cheerfully leading the way forward.
Mrs. Hoffman is a treasure to the SMS community and a most deserving teacher of this award. We could not be more proud of her.
