Next Friday - April 20th - we will have a Special Assembly at 10:30 for all students and staff. Tristan James will be with us to share his inspirational story.
Tristan used to be your average teenager great at only two things: eating junk food and playing video games. At age 15 that changed when Tristan and his family would become virtually homeless the beginning of his freshman year of high school and the following semester when he saw his dad lying lifeless in a funeral home casket.
Since then he has become an expert in human motivation, investing his personal time and effort to earn the respect and endorsement of Pastor Joel Osteen, Mike Tyson, Olympic Gold Medalist Brian Boitano and others. Currently, he is the youngest international life coach in the industry of personal development, an author, and nationally recognized motivational speaker. His book, "The Water Hose," contains techniques he used to untangle his life.
Casino Night is the single most fundraiser that the school embarks. Invite your family and friends and come to an night of fun to help the school raise money. The money goes to assist the teachers with supplies and teaching tools to help the students succeed.
Parents and teachers, save the date! Casino Night is April 27, from 7 to 10. This is an adults only event. Invite your friends! Play Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and more for door prizes. Bid on silent auction items. Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. This is the biggest social event of the year for adults and the PTO’s biggest fundraiser. Last year’s proceeds paid for AP teacher training for every AP teacher at St. Michael’s, for Mrs. Geracoulis’ foreign language conference, and for CPR training for the teachers and staff. These funds also helped the PTO replace the heating unit in the pool classrooms and contribute to a new firewall to keep the school safely connected to the internet.
