End of the Year Blast
Students in PK-8 enjoyed a great “End of the Year Blast” on Monday, complete with a delicious cookout, little jumpie, street hockey, face painting, sidewalk games, playground time, scooters, baggos, and a Popsicle treat. The picnic was a great way for students to kickoff their summer vacations, which began Tuesday after mass and a 10a.m. dismissal. Many thanks to PILLARS for sponsoring the event!
PILLARS Calling all Room Parents
PILLARS is recruiting room parents for the 2012-2013 school year. Room parents serve as a liaison between the teacher/s and parents, as well as a liaison between PILLARS and parents. As a room parent, you are responsible for continued communication throughout the school year, as well as aiding in one school wide event hosted by PILLARS. You will need to attend a monthly PILLARS Executive Board meeting once a month and attend a Room Parent Training at the beginning of the school year. You will also be in communication with your classroom teacher to assist him or her in regards to classroom parties, coordinating volunteers, etc. For parents whose child or children will be in a grade that has two classrooms next year, we will assign room parents once class lists are distributed. For new St. Matthias families, we would love for you to get involved as well. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in becoming a room parent and let us know what grade level you are interested in.
Altar Server Training
There will be a parent/child meeting on Sunday, June 10th immediately following the 8am Mass in the church for students interested in being altar servers.
Students who are at least in the 4th grade and have made their First Communion are eligible. The meeting will involve some general information and expectations as well as giving us the chance to set up a training schedule.
Please contact Karyn McGovern, 773/334-6622, kemcgovern@ juno.com to sign up or for questions. See you then!
