Catholic Schools Week

Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is a nation-wide, week-long celebration of the mission of Catholic and contribution of Catholic education. It begins on Sunday, January 26 with our students attending Mass in their school uniform. This year our school will be providing coffee and donuts for parishioners and school families after the 9:30 AM Mass. All are invited. The week also includes Open House for current and prospective parents, Student and Teacher Appreciation Day, school Mass and many other activities. Look for a detailed listing in next week’s Bridges. Mark your calendar to attend our annual State of the School meeting on Wednesday, January 29 at 6:30. Planning for this important meeting is underway. Look for further information to be sent home soon.

Thank You to our Home and School Association

The children, teachers and staff of St. Matthias are very grateful to the dedication and hard work of our HSA volunteers. We enjoyed a great pancake breakfast and Christmas activities. The children were thrilled to visit with Santa and begin their Christmas holiday with a fun and exciting school day. We are grateful to all who volunteered and to Mrs. Dawn Freeman for leading the event and to her helpers.
