S.M.A.R.T. Online Gala and Auction
Our S.M.A.R.T. Gala and Auction is almost here! All school families, parishioners, and community members are invited! While we cannot gather together at Indian Summer as planned, we now have an exciting opportunity to invite more people to engage in our virtual auction. Please support our auction and also share the link to our auction website with your friends and family members. While our live event begins at 7PM this Saturday, our online auction is now open! Thank you for your generous support of our major stewardship event for this school year.
Please join us to generously provide for both the current and future learning needs of our students! This year’s Fund-A-Needis focused on growing our school’s capacity to provide a Chromebook for every St. Michael student requesting one. Our time in virtual learning has been enabled by the use of technology and, through this, we have discovered that the Chromebook is the very best device to meet the learning needs of our students.
Our students are currently using a wide variety of devices (iPads, laptops, desktops, and Chromebooks) for both virtual learning and on-campus learning. We are facing hardware, software, and connectivity challenges with students accessing their curriculum and learning tools from these different devices. We currently have two Chromebook carts and all of our devices have been checked out and assigned to students for this school year.
Through your generous stewardship for this Fund-A-Need, our goal is to purchase five additional Chromebook carts for our students. Each cart contains a set of 30 Chromebooks and costs $10,000 per cart. These devices will be checked out to all students requesting one for the remainder of this school year. In subsequent years, these Chromebook carts will be available to each grade so that students can easily access digital learning tools.
Thank you for your generosity in meeting the needs of our students!
