Primary Grades Celebrate Harvest Day!
Students in prekindergarten, kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade participated in a day-long learning adventure in Friendship Hall. Students participated in academic and teambuilding activities, all centered around the fall season. Students tried new pumpkin foods, did hands-on activities with gross and fine motor, and worked together. Students worked on math projects with counting and measuring to create a snack of their choice. Studies show the power of play on academic and intellectual growth long-term, and at Saint Matthias, we value and prioritize children being able to learn and grow in a hands-on environment.
Thank you to Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Sanneman, Ms. Campbell, and Ms. Scanlan for planning the celebration. This event would not have been possible without the help of many parent volunteers! Thank you for your
