All Saints Mass

November 21, 2019
By Heather Brower

The St. Matthew First grade class hosted the Annual All Saints' Day Mass on Friday, November 1st in the church. The first graders dressed as the saint of their choice, and recited a short speech about their saint.

Students and their families worked hard to prepare costumes and readings for this special event, and the church was packed full with St. Matthew families, friends, parishioners and community members. Thank you to those who attended and supported our students on this solemnity honoring all saints!

Dead Scientists Society

November 01, 2019
By Heather Brower

Each year, the children in Mrs. Kemp's 7th grade science class complete individual projects honoring those who have passed away, but have left behind important legacies in the field of science. The well-loved event has been dubbed the Dead Scientists Society.

As part of the project, each student researched a scientist, wrote a paper, created a tombstone, and dressed in costume to resemble their scientist; all work was displayed on Halloween. In addition to deceased scientists walking about the "graveyard," there were some donuts and other Halloween treats--it was quite the celebration.

Kids from other grades were invited to visit the Dead Scientists down in the science lab, where they learned about the scientists' contributions and achievements, as well as interesting facts. For example, did you know that Marie Curie's notebooks are STILL radioactive? True story. 

We hope everyone enjoyed a safe and happy Halloween!

Sixth Grade Goes to Outdoor School!

October 24, 2019
By Heather Brower

Earlier this month, the sixth grade class ventured to the coast to Camp Magruder for an exciting week of Outdoor School. During their 4-day stay, the children participated in interactive field studies to learn about a variety of ecosystems, including forest, ocean, freshwater lake, marsh, and ocean tide pools. They even dissected a squid to learn about organs and biological systems!

Outdoor School provides an opportunity for students to learn while being immersed in the outdoors. The kids participate in hands-on activities that are taught mostly in small groups.

St. Matthew is proud to offer students this invaluable experience at no additional cost to families, thanks to school-wide fundraising efforts throughout the school year. Through this middle school tradition, St. Matthew is excited to promote scientific curiosity, appreciation for nature, and responsibility for the environment.

Students Serve God's Kingdom at St. Matthew

October 09, 2019
By Heather Brower

During religion class last week, while identifying ways they can serve God’s kingdom, the fourth grade class at St. Matthew Catholic School decided that they could serve God right then and there by doing a campus trash sweep.

The students immediately walked out to the field near the playground and began to look for litter. The children soon filled several bags with garbage, and were very proud of their work!  "It was a quick and easy way to fit a service project into the day, and care for what God has given us," said Fourth Grade Teacher Meghan Townsend.

We are very proud of how our St. Matthew students humbly serve God and one another with service projects like this one! Please visit the calendar section of our Web site to learn about upcoming school events and additional service opportunities.
