What We Do
Parents' Club supports the school through communications (email) and fundraising. Parents' Club has donated $58,000 towards upgraded technology for St. Matthew students. Over the past few years, Parents’ Club has also purchased a flat screen television for the entrance to school, light tables and Picasso tiles for the pre-k, SMART Board Panels, playground equipment and mulch, and updates for the teacher's lounge.
An easy way to generate money for St. Matthew is for St. Matthew families to sign up for store rebate programs and downloading the Box Tops for Education app to your mobile device. You can find the app here.
It is with your help Parents’ Club can support our school and children. We are grateful for all those who volunteer and give of their time and talent. Volunteering is a great way to meet other school parents and students, and is what makes St. Matthew School a special community.
Parents' Club meetings for the 2021-2022 school year are on First Wednesday of each month (October 6, November 3, December 1, January 5,
