Welcome Letter

We would like to announce that our preschool program is becoming a full time Pre-K for 4 year olds beginning with the 2018-2019 school year. There will no longer be a 3 year old class.

The Pre-K Program will be offered Monday through Friday from 8-2:30 with a half day (11:30 dismissal) option. Extended care (until 5:30 PM) will also be offered on a day to day basis if needed.
The pre-k is located in the kindergarten wing, room 103 and is an extension of the school, following the same school calendar. Maximum class size will be 18 children. All children are required to be potty trained and self-sufficient in the restroom and are required to follow the school’s uniform policy. Children enrolling in the 4’s class must be 4 by September 1.

A typical day will consist of:

AM: Table tubs, circle time (weather, calendar, songs), small group stations (Handwriting Without Tears, math, sensory play), large group activities (art, science, social studies), Bible lessons, story time, recess (gross motor play), specials class (art, music, P.E., spanish), and free play.

PM: Lunch, recess, rest time, centers, art, and games.

St. Matthew School will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year beginning on Sunday, January 28th from 9-11AM in Feeney Hall.

Priority for acceptance will be:
1) Current students
2) Siblings of current students
3) Parishioners
4) Non-parishioners
We look forward to our St. Matthew School family growing in spirit as they Play, Pray, Learn…as children of God.
