Water Fountain Wish Success
We are proud to announce that we have raised $7,000 to purchase and install new drinking fountains throughout the school. In addition to the funds donated by PILLARS, this money will go a long way towards making our wish for new drinking fountains come true. Our goal is for our children to have new fountains on the first day of school
The overwhelming support we received for the Water Fountain Wish demonstrates the strength of our community of family and friends, and underscores the commitment they have shown for St. Matthias through this period of growth and change.
A special thanks to all the families who so generously contributed to this effort and to the GlobalFest Silent Auction Committee whose hard work resulted in so much support. We could not have done it without you. This is truly a gift that will benefit our students for many years to come!
