Class Events

halloweenBook Fair:
We sponsor two book fairs a year: one before Christmas and one in the spring. Children and parents have the opportunity to buy books on a wide variety of subject matters.

School Musicales:
Christmas Pageant and Spring Musicale are held annually. (A written excuse needs to be given to the teacher if your child/children cannot attend.)

Catholic Schools Week:
The last week of January is reserved to celebrate the pride in our Catholic School heritage. Our celebrations include special liturgies, teacher appreciation day, open house and a special grandparents meal.

Rob Carbaugh Field Day:
At the end of each school year, St. Matthew’s students compete in field events such as foot races, long jump, pull-ups, ball throw, jump rope, etc. Emphasis is placed on having fun.

Dress-up Days:
Dress-up days (no uniforms required) are the first and last days of school and picture days. Please see the handbook for specific requirements.

Graduation from the 8th Grade at St. Matthew’s is a very special time for our children. The 7th Grade hosts and serves the reception/dance for the graduating class. We gather for a special ceremony followed by a reception and dancing.

We proudly gather in the celebration that completes the foundation for their academic and religious future.
