On December 17, Jolene Nichols, a former student from St. Michael’s, died following an extended illness related to Cystic Fibrosis. Jolene’s parents, Kevin and Anna Nichols, have extended an invitation to the community to join them in a celebration of Jolene’s life on Saturday, January 20, at 5:00 p.m. at Himmel Park on “The Big Hill.” Bring a chair or a blanket. St. Michael’s was blessed to have Jolene and her family in our community for a short time. We will always consider her one of our St. Michael’s eagles. Her courage and positive outlook will continue to serve as an inspiration to others.
During the month of November, the Murphy-Wilmot Library offers us space to display the creative output of St. Michael’s students. Intermediate and Middle School students have created winter holiday-themed images: elf legs, holiday ornaments, and “ugly holiday sweaters,” for example. Each project focused on the use of balance and compositional organization while building skills in the use of collage and water color. Please stop by the library next door to see these wonderful projects!
