It’s official. Summer is in its waning moments.
Just ask the hundreds of students who headed over to St. Michael-Albertville High School today for Student Kick Off Day, a relatively new tradition started by Principal Robert Driver and the staff. Kids are able to get a glimpse of life inside one of the state’s largest high schools prior to the beginning of school, this year on Sept. 8.
Student Kick-Off Day at St. Michael Albertville High School is set for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18th at the school. The day includes an opportunity for students and their parents to pick up class schedules, tour the building and find their lockers. Counselors will be available throughout the day to help with any scheduling needs. Another special feature of the day will be that students will have their picture taken for the yearbook and ID badge. For your convenience, picture order forms are now available on the high school website .
In addition to touring the building, students will be able to deposit money in their lunch account, purchase a parking permit ($100 per year), and reconnect with friends, counselors and administrators.
Please note: The STMA Food Service Department will be using an online payment service called mySchoolBucks. Parents will also be able to access this information on the district STMA Website under the Food and Nutrition link.
Back to School Nights
The other buildings in the STMA School District will welcome students in about two weeks.
St. Michael-Albertville Middle School West and STMA Middle School East will host its annual Open House evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1.

All elementary schools – Big Woods, Fieldstone and St. Michael Elementary – will host their Open House evenings Monday, Aug. 31. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and kids can bring their school supplies to the classroom and meet their assigned teacher. The evening wraps up at 7:30 p.m.
Albertville Primary – home of the district’s kindergarten program – will host picture day and a brief open house on Tuesday, Sept. 8, which is the first day of school for students in grades 1 to 12. Kindergartners will get to see the school one more time before class starts the following day, as well as a chance to drop off supplies and meet their teachers.
