St. Matthew Catholic School has again been named the School of Excellence by the Catholic Education Foundation of Kansas City.  We were chosen from among the 21 CEF schools in the archdiocese for excellence in Catholicity, academic progress, service, and resource management.  We were blessed with this honor in 2012 as well.  We will be recognized at the CEF Gaudeamus gala and fundraiser on Saturday, October 25, and will be featured in the Leaven, so keep an eye out!  Thanks to all students, faculty, and parents for making this a great place to learn and pray!

Celebrate your loved ones with books! PDF Print E-mail

SMCS would like to invite you to celebrate your child or remember a loved one with a gift to the school library in the form of a new book in their honor or memory.  We currently have several books that have been donated in memory of loved ones and on the inside cover, those books are identified as a special gift in memory of someone and include the donor’s name. 

The idea came to us to also celebrate birthdays this way as well.  If you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with a special book that can be shared by their friends in the library, we encourage you to select a book they would enjoy and send it to the school office for Mrs. Otting to prepare for circulation in the school library.  Please do not worry about duplicates because chances are if it is a new book we may not have it and if it is a classic, we likely could use a new copy! 

On a separate sheet of paper, please write the name, dates, donor, etc. and include it with the book to assist us in accurately documenting the gift.  Feel free to write your own personal note inside the book cover if you would like.

Thank you for your consideration of this special book project.
