Students Celebrate Catholic Schools

February 04, 2020
By Heather Brower

The students, staff, and families of St. Matthew Catholic School recently celebrated National Catholic Schools Week (January 26 through February 1). Catholic Schools Week (CSW) is an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. Currently in its 46th anniversary year, CSW has traditionally been held the last week in January. The theme for the 2020 CSW was “Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.”

Schools typically observe the week with special Masses, open house events and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members to participate in and enjoy. Schools focus on the incomparable value that Catholic education provides to our youth and its contributions to church, local communities and the country.

The celebration at St. Matthew included a variety of fun events for all grades that were created to honor St. Matthew Catholic School—as well as Catholic schools across the country. Students enjoyed a week of themed spirit days, a staff versus eighth grade volleyball game, a pre-K through eighth grade open house and Special Friends’ Day—a time when students are invited to bring a friend or relative to join them for part of the school day as their special guest.

During Catholic Schools week, the students also participated in a service project, donating various items to send to our troops currently serving overseas. Additionally, seventh grade students spent time with their 1st grade buddies creating beautiful hand-made centerpieces for Specials Friends Day. On that day, our special guests also enjoyed coffee and a light breakfast, a musical performance from fourth grade, a fun activity in their student's classroom and finally, they attended school mass in the church.

We want to say thank you to all our special friends for coming to visit us during Catholic Schools Week, and thanks to everyone who supports St. Matthew Catholic School with their time, talents and treasures. We could not do what we do without you!
