From the Desk of Mrs. Johnson:
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
January is such an exciting time for us, welcome to a new year and a new beginning.
St. Matthew Catholic School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8 community of lifelong learners with Catholic education as our purpose. Our school and staff are committed to developing the full potential of every child. The staff here at St. Matthew Catholic School look forward to providing a positive, safe and caring environment, where all are welcome and respected. We are also excited about the coming school year that promises new opportunities for learning and growing in our Faith.
Our division theme this year is ‘Rooted, Nourished and Growing.”
Looking back on the months gone by, as a new year starts and an old one ends,
We contemplate what brought us joy, and we think of our loved ones and our friends.
Recalling all the happy times, remembering how they enriched our lives,
We reflect upon who really counts, as the fresh and bright new year arrives.
And when we ponder those who do, we immediately think of you.
Thanks for being one of the reasons we'll have a Happy New Year!
It is an honour and privilege to be able to serve the community of St. Matthew Catholic School and I look forward to another great year!
A New Year's Prayer
Lord, You make all things new
You bring hope alive in our hearts
And cause our Spirits to be born again.
Thank you for this new year
For all the potential it holds.
Come and kindle in us
A mighty flame
So that in our time, many will see the wonders of God
And live forever to praise Your glorious name.
