A Message from our Principal and Vice Principal, September 2013:




















Welcome to St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, Ontario.

We are honoured to be the Administrators of such a caring Christian community founded in Catholic values, dedicated to academic excellence and committed to preparing students to meet the challenges of the future. Our school's vision is "Called Together to Learn" in serving all our students. We look forward to working with our staff, students and parents and community partners this school year in supporting our vision and achieving student success for all our students at St. Michael Catholic High School.

Come and witness our Mustang Spirit that is so evident in our school community with the many extra and co-curricular activities offered by our committed staff for our students.

The staff and Mrs. Finnegan and I will continue to work in partnership with our students, parents and Parish community members in teaching our students to follow the ways of Jesus through thoughts, words and actions at St. Michael Catholic High School.

We leave you with a prayer from our Patron Saint, Saint Michael the Archangel defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
                                                
Yours in Catholic Education,

Great Achievement from our French Extended Program
Image

Three French Extended grade 12 students were chosen to participate in a Ministry Pilot project. This pilot project is a globally-accepted language exam called the Diplôme d'Étude de Langue Française (DELF) offered by the Ministry of National Education to assess language skills of people whose first language is not French. There are 4 different levels of this exam which align with the new French as a Second Language Curriculum that is being implemented next school year (oral, reading, writing and listening skills). 
 
The requirements to participate in this Ministry pilot project were very specific as we are assessing how our students learning a second language are doing in our Ontario schools. Each strands aims for students to attain a certain level of bilingualism by the end of grade 12. Our Extended students were assessed at a B1 level.

In May, Megan Logsdail, Kendra Lakevold and Colleen Ruth successfully passed the B1 test. These three grade 12 students have achieved the goal of the French as a Second Language programs in our Ontario High Schools. They now have an internationally recognized certificate indicating their level of bilingualism.

Félicitations les filles!!!

Intermediate Students Participate in Track Championship



LGESAA
 Championship for Track & Field

On Monday June 2nd, St Michael CHS grade 7 and 8 students participated in the LGESAA championship for Track and Field. The team of 52 traveled to Brockville to compete in a series of events which led them to an overall second place finish. The athletes pushed through the sweltering heat, competing against 17 schools and setting both personal and record breaking finishes. Regional champions included Kylie King, Rachel Goldberg, Ryan Johnston, Connor Manderson and Steven Vichos.
Rachel Goldberg, had an outstanding meet, winning all 3 of her events as well as setting a new long jump record of 4.68 meters in the senior girl’s long jump. This broke a 35 year old record and led her to claim the top senior girl of the meet.
Ryan Johnston had an exceptional meet as well, winning the long jump for senior boys with an impressive jump of 5.48 meters and also claiming the title of top senior boy of the overall.
Connor Manderson and Kylie King both had an impressive day winning their shot put event for the junior boys and junior girls division. Despite the tough competition, Connor and Kylie showed determination and claimed first place in their  event.
Steven Vichos won two events. Most notable was his 800 meter run which he finished in 2 minutes and 29 seconds, almost beating a 25 year old record. He was named top junior boy of the meet.
The St. Michael athletes showed true sportsmanship all day long to both their own teammates and to competing athletes. Their hard work, perseverance, determination and willingness to learn have brought the intermediate athletes much success this track season.
The coaches are very proud of all Track and Field athletes. This season has been an outstanding year with many memorable moments for both athletes and coaches. Congratulations Mustangs!

St Michael Music Students Visit Windy City
  The yearly band trip tradition continued last week with a cultural tour of Chicago.  The Chicago Symphony, Motown Musical, a music workshop at Northwestern University, and performances at Rockefella Chapel and the Resurrection Catholic Retirement Home underpinned the musical portion of the trip.  The performance by the choir, jazz, and concert bands at the retirement home was particularly well received.  Music provided the bridge between generations as students and residents enjoyed both the performance and the socializing before and after.
Other destinations included the silver "Cloud Gate" at Millennium Park, Lincoln Park Conservatory and Zoo, the Chicago Cultural Centre, Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, and historic Wrigley field, Soldier Field, and United Centre, home of the MLB Cubs, NFL Bears and NHL Black Hawks and NBA Bulls respectively.

Holy Cross Youngsters Share Christmas Joy With St. Michael Mustangs
Image

In an effort to continue to share special moments with our Kemptville community during the Advent season, St. Michael's grade 11 Extended and Core French classes walked over to Holy Cross to do a Christmas activity on Tuesday December 10th. M. Mitchell's grade 3 French Immersion class was eagerly waiting and provided a warm welcome when the high school students walked in. The younger students were a great influence on the senior students helping them discover the Holiday Joy simply by sharing their good spirit and excitement. Influenced by the children, the Mustangs also made their own Holiday craft for their loved ones with the help of the Holy Cross students. Both the elementary and secondary students exemplified the Christmas spirit by enthusiastically completing their Holiday activities. St. Michael's staff and students would like to extend a sincere thank you to our exceptional hosts at Holy Cross.  Pictured above  are St Michael student Julia Halliday and Holy Cross student Edison Dawber.

St Mikes Sr Boys capture Bronze at the Provincials
St Michael Senior Boys Volleyball
Image 
The historic season for the St. Michael senior boys volleyball team has come to an end but this group of young men has left an imprint on Mustang athletics which will be remembered for a life time. After completing an impressive regular season that included winning Gold at the RMC tournament in Kingston, Gold at the St. Mary tournament in Brockville and Silver at the Dalhousie tournament in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Mustangs knew they had a special team. Following their victory at EOSSAA last week, the boys had high hopes heading into the OFSAA tournament in Thunder Bay. Since this was the first time a team from St. Michael has attended “AA” OFSAA for men’s volleyball, the Mustangs were surprised to receive a favorable ranking of 7 out of the top 20 AA programs in Ontario. The goal was to live up to their ranking and finish as one of the top 8 teams in the province. 

 

With a win Day 2 over the 16 seeded Timiskaming DHS on Friday afternoon, the Mustangs finished first in their pool and attained their goal of top 8 in the province. In the best of five championship quarter finals, the boys from Kemptville faced off against a very strong number 5 seed Sir Allen McNab high school from Hamilton.  Once again the leadership and maturity of the Mustangs shone through as they rallied to win 15-13 in the 5th set to secure a spot as one of the top 4 AA teams in Ontario. On Saturday morning the Mustangs found themselves in a David versus Goliath situation as they faced off against the number 1 seed and 7 time defending champions from Eden. Unfortunately, they were no able to push through and Mustangs lost the match and got set to battle for Bronze that afternoon.

In the Bronze medal match the Mustangs engaged in a see-saw battle against an equal adversary from Dryden. Their will was strong and the Mustangs found the strength to win the 3rd set 30-28 to take home the first OFSAA volleyball medal in school history. A special congratulations goes out to the following graduating players: Kade Bloskie, Lucais MacKay- Ronnacher, Liam Glenn, Auzzy Jones, James Murray and captains Cole Brookson and Shawn Kingsbury.
