Updating feature class metadata in model builder or python

Is there a way to append information to the metadata of a feature class in model builder or in a python script. I want to create a script that copies data from SDE and archives it in a FileGDB but I need to add a date and information about the associated project phase to the metadata so that there is a record showing which stage in the project the data is referencing. I have a large number of feature classes that will have to be updated with the same information so I want to streamline this process. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
