The St. Michael: A Remarkable Tradition (S.M.A.R.T.) Auctions are our annual fundraising events that occurs in the fall and spring each year. Begun in 1989, the auction has grown substantially in community recognition and funding success. When you attend or donate to our auction, you are participating in a very meaningful way in the “remarkable tradition” that is St. Michael School.
During procurement windows each winter and spring, and students/families are asked to seek donations from the community. Incentives are offered to students for participating.
S.M.A.R.T. Family Night is scheduled for October and is held in the school gym. This is a fun, community-building night of stewardship for all school families, parishioners, and guests. The S.M.A.R.T. Gala is scheduled for a Saturday evening in the spring and is an adults-only formal affair with a catered dinner.
The auctions are organized by school parents and headed by two sets of co-chairs. Various committee chairs with teams of parents assist in the year-long preparation for these events.
The net profits are divided equally between the St. Michael School Endowment Fund, whose interest is used for tuition assistance, and the Capital Improvements Fund which funds school deferred maintenance.
