Thanksgiving Food Drive - October 12 to November 9
The St. Matthew's school children will once again take part in the our congegation's annual Thanksgiving Food Drive! The food drive will begin on Monday, October 12, and will run through Monday, November 9. For the last seven years our school children have done a remarkable job of collecting non-perishable food items, and they've had fun in the process! The contest is a friendly, fun competition between classes. Rules are set and each classroom participates. At the end of the competition, our pastors, principal, and church staff lead a Thanksgiving devotion and program in the school gym for the students. Check out all of the food drive details as well as the contest rules! The food drive starts in one week!
Fall Achievement Testing
In the fall of each year, St. Matthew’s Lutheran School administers the Terra Nova Achievement Test to all students in grades 3-8. This testing allows us to compare the academic achievement of our students with other students in our synod (WELS) and throughout the nation. Our students typically score favorably compared with the national and WELS averages as can seen on this year's test report. Students will finish their testing in early October this fall, and the results are expected by early December.
