  • Homecoming Dance 2019!

    There is no better way to celebrate all of the hard work and dedication our students have put into the first quarter of the school year than with the festivities of Homecoming. We know the football team is ready for a win. And we can’t wait to see everyone at the Luau Homecoming Dance Saturday night in the Dining Hall. Looking for the guest form? Here you go!

    A quick reminder that doors open at 7:30 p.m., and students must be inside by 8:30 p.m. Once inside, students are expected to stay until the dance ends at 10:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 the night of the event.

    As we round out Spirit Week, this seems a prudent time to remind all that the safety of our students ranks at the top of St. Michael’s priorities. We ask that students remember that sound judgment and proper behavior are always expected at school-sponsored events and in the Austin community at large. Parents and guardians, we ask your help in reminding and guiding students to make wise and responsible decisions, not only this weekend, but throughout the year.

    Everyone shares the responsibility to make sure that events such as Homecoming are enjoyed by all in accordance with the behavioral guidelines outlined in the Student and Family Handbook.

    As always, if any questions arise, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Will Cutrer. We look forward to everyone enjoying all of the Homecoming festivities together.

  • Homecoming Mums and Garters 101: Texas Mum Tradition Explained!

    Mum & Garter Ordering Closes on September 16!

    Supplies are limited, so be sure to get your order in! Sales benefit Project Graduation 2020. ORDER DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 16, 2019. HERE IS THE ORDER FORM FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE!
     
    Q: What is a mum?
    A: A mum is a flower with ribbons, trinkets, bells and excessive décor traditionally worn by ladies in Texas to school and to the football game the day of the Homecoming game (September 20).

    Q: What is a garter?
    A: A garter is a smaller flower with ribbons, trinkets, and bells traditionally worn by young men in Texas (on their arm) to school and to the football game on the day of the Homecoming game (September 20).

    Q: Who buys the mum?
    A: Typically, the young man buys the mum for his date whom he should have asked by September 16 (the mum-making moms’ deadline). If the young lady has not been asked to the dance, it is highly recommended that the mom or dad of the young lady consider buying a mum for their daughter so that she can be a part of the community and all the fun at SMCA over the Homecoming weekend!

    Q: Who buys the garter?
    A: See above and insert “young lady buys the garter for her date”…etc.

    Q: How do I order the mum and/or garter?
    A: Please use this link. Or, use the order form that can be found at Ms. Schaffer’s desk in the Upper Commons. Cash, check or credit card can be used to pay.

    Q: How much do they cost?
    A: Prices start at $40 for a DIY kit and increase from there depending on whether you choose a Traditional, Fancy or Premium mum. All the specifics are found on the order form and online through the link.

    Q: How will the money being raised from mum/garter sales be used?
    A: The money earned by this fund-raising effort will be used to pay for Project Graduation for the Class of 2020. The Project Graduation committee plans a safe, fun and memorable party the night of graduation for our seniors, complete with prizes, food and drink. It is a special event that all your children will have the opportunity to be a part of when they graduate from SMCA!

    Q: Whom can I contact with questions?
    A: For questions, please contact: Cate Daboub.
