Virtus Training Saturday, August 25

We will be having a Virtus training here at the school on Saturday, August 25 from 10:00 – 1:00 pm in Friendship Hall.  Please be aware that you cannot volunteer in any capacity where kids are involved unless you are Virtus certified.  Please do not wait until a field trip and realize you need to be Virtus cleared.  Keep in mind that at the beginning of the school year it takes a few weeks to be cleared.

Virtus Checklist


Entrenamiento de Virtus Sábado, 25 de Agosto.

Tendremos un entrenamiento de Virtus aquí en la escuela el Sábado, 25 de Agosto desde las 10:00AM-1:00PM en Friendship Hall. Por favor tenga en cuenta que no puede ofrecerse como voluntario en ninguna actividad en la que participen niños a menos que cuente con la certificación de Virtus. Por favor, no espere hasta un día de paseo y descubrir que necesita ser certificado de Virtus. Tenga en cuenta que, al comienzo del año escolar, demora algunas semanas en ser registrado como padre de familia certificado en Virtus.


Sign Up for School Cleanup/Decluttering

It’s back to school time.  That means we need volunteers to help get St. Matthias in tip top shape for the first day of school.  Volunteers are needed to help wash down tables and chairs in the Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms.  Other jobs would include moving tables and chairs to the various classrooms, decluttering the server closet, the closet in the nurse’s office and the teacher’s lounge.  Also need volunteers to cover text books.  The text book job can be completed at home but would require  picking up the books.  Hours completed will go towards this year’s service hours.  Virtus training is not required.  If you can help out, sign up.

Volunteers Needed for Religious Education Program

Catherine Tolnay, Director of Religious Education is looking for 3 catechists, classroom aides, and substitute teachers for our Religious Education program on Monday evenings. It would be from 6:15 p.m to 8 p.m. For school families, this fulfills your volunteer hours. Please contact Ms. Tolnay at ctolnay@stmatthias or call 301-459-4814.

The actual cost of educating one child at Saint Matthias was over $2000 more than the cost of tuition. This includes instruction and educational materials, and capital improvements. Your donations help us keep our tuition costs low. Thank you for your support!
