Another milestone of the Academic Community was made possible through the joint effort of the Subject Area Chairpersons of the Basic Education Department as they launched their Academic and Special Programs for the school year 2011-2012. These Programs are as follows; Drop Everything and Read (DEAR); Speak Good English Move (SGEM); Spelling Program; MATH-SCI Academic Assistance Review Program; GO Green Michaelites; Good Grooming Program; and SEA Forum, a social awareness program. "Biboh Michaelite! Marks a Distinction all year through."
Ms. Racti Honey Jane A. Estorque, Chairman of Communication Arts Area kicked off the activity with a video clip and a Reading Jingle-Dance presentation entitled “Gotta Keep Reading” headed by the Forth Year – St. Therese students. This was then followed by a Language Challenge on some selected students where they freely express their opinions on sustaining the Speak in Good English Movement (SGEM) otherwise known as the E-Zone. Aside from the E-zone, the Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) and Spelling Program was also launched.
On the other hand, Mr. Roy Owen C. Diapera, Chairman of the Math & Science Area launched the Go Green Michaelite, a program which mainly talks about saving Mother Earth and being one in the mission to save life and the environment where we live. This program called us to be agents of transformation and a responsible citizen of tomorrow.
Moreover, Mrs. Maria C. Buot, Chairman of the MAKABAYAN Area gracefully launched the Good Grooming and Personal hygiene Program. It aims to instill in the hearts and minds of the students and school personnel the importance of maintaining a healthy and pleasing personality at all times. Lastly, Mr. Chris Michael A. Padla also launched the SEA Forum, a program on social awareness.
St. Michael's College of Iligan City, a Catholic institution of higher learning in Iligan City, administered by the Religious of the Virgin Mary (RVM), offering four levels of education: elementary, secondary, tertiary and graduate school.
Its programs are accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) for 25 years, a silver triumph indeed!
