Fall Festival: More Than Fun
As I walked through the parking lot on Monday at dismissal, I got a chance to speak to some of parents. The word that kept coming up was COMMUNITY. After last Saturday’s successful Fall Festival, we were all still riding the high of a wonderful day of fundraising and fun. Our students had enjoyed time together, but so had our parents, extended families, community members and maybe even a few prospective students.
Our 8th grade students raised funds for their graduation and 8th grade trip. Our 6th graders sold goods to raise money for a memorial for a classmate who died from brain cancer this summer. Service to our school and to such wonderful, student-drive causes were all around us.
Huge thanks to the H.S.A. and Mrs. Richards for putting together a day where our preschoolers all the way up to our alumni had fun! My hour in the dunk tank was one where I laughed and cheered (yes, and froze a bit!).
At Saint Matthias, we are a community.
