Newly Enrolled Students and Families

Dear Newly Enrolled Students and Families,

We hope that you and your family are doing well. Once again, congratulations on your child’s admission to St. Michael’s Country Day School!

Our school launched our distance-learning plan for SMS students that will run for the duration of our school closure. While our campus is closed, our learning community continues to thrive as our teachers, students, and parents remain connected.

Our St. Michael’s community is strong and we miss seeing our students, faculty and parents on a daily basis. As a way to stay connected, our team has created many opportunities for our school community to engage with each other during our school closure, including our SMS Got Talent! talent show and Finding the Balance Fridays.

Additionally, to help support the social-emotional health of our students, we engage in live biweekly LIVE Q & A meetings with Dr. Marcy Atkins, Psy D. Dr. Atkins is a licensed clinical psychologist with a specialty in children’s services.

We are excited to have rolled out to you and current SMS families some at-home family activities that will entertain and engage children of varying ages. If you have shied away from social media, I understand completely – however, we are creating lots of content on our St. Michael’s Facebook and Instagram pages – so follow us to learn more about SMS.

We look forward to welcoming you back to campus soon. I am available to chat with your family over the phone, email, or Zoom. Please let me know if I can be helpful. We are thrilled to welcome you to the St. Michael’s family!

 

Sincerely,

Sandy Merten
Director of Enrollment Management

Teachers never stop teaching the whole student and the curriculum. Every teacher answers my son’s questions every time. Because my son’s teachers are so supportive and always help him before he falls, my son trusts his teachers as leaders.

We came to St. Michael’s for two reasons – the incredible arts programs that the school has, and for Phil Tutino.  Too many schools are cutting back on their arts programs, but St. Michael’s understands the value of balancing rigorous academic study with a foundation in the arts. This has
