2016-17 School Year Begins
The 2016-17 school year began under the theme, "Christ In Me," based on Galatians 2:20: "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me." May the Lord bless us as we treasure this truth, live this truth, and share this truth!
Following are a few helpful reminders for parents relating to these first weeks of school.
- Don't forget to check the Reminder Checklist that was in your Parent Meeting folder. The Family-School Partnership Covenant is due back on the first day of school!
- SCRIP cards will be sold each morning next week from 7:20-8:00. Make plans to shop with SCRIP!
- Our hot lunch menus for August and September and all subsequent menus can be found in the "Quick Links" section (bottom right) of this school home page.
- There was a recent change in our First Quarter Mission Project, so please be sure to check out the details!
May God bless the start of the school year for you and your family!
Foundational Messages That Make A Difference
Message #2 - HOPE
There are many aspects of St. Matthew's Lutheran School that make a significant difference in a child's life. Small class sizes and individual attention certainly are prominent, and the high achievement and high school success of the graduates are noteworthy as well. Underneath it all, however, is a spiritual foundation that makes all the difference in a child's life. This foundation is embodied in four key messages that permeate the Christian education offered at St. Matthew's. Those four messages are PEACE, HOPE, JOY, and LOVE.
