Fourth Grade Students Participate in Advocacy Day in Annapolis
This was not your normal trip to Annapolis… On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, Saint Matthias fourth graders attended Advocacy Day in Annapolis, Maryland. During this time, they were able to hear speakers share with students from across the state, including Maryland Governor Hogan, Archbishop Lori, and Archdiocese of Washington Superintendent Kelly Branaman. Our students joined over 700 private school students from across the state to take part in this historic day. Not only were students wowed by the history around them, they also had an opportunity to be a part of the legislative process. Students shared with delegates and representatives how the Tax Credit bill would help all schools. Students also got to sit and watch the delegates at work on the senate floor.
Saint Matthias was mentioned in the Catholic Standard article about the day! http://www.cathstan.org/Content/News/News/Article/Students-rally-in-Annapolis-for-the-Maryland-Education-Credit/2/2/6520
