Holy Days during Christmas break PDF Print E-mail

Don't forget that there are two Holy Days of Obligation during Christmas break!  Christmas is obviously one, and masses will be at St. Matthew at 5:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve and 8:00 a.m. on Christmas Day.

The other Holy Day is the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.  Masses will be on Wednesday, December 31 at 6:00 p.m. and Thursday, January 1 at 8:00 a.m.

Please remember that if your child is in a sacrament preparation year (2nd, 7th, or 8th), that he/she will need to continue to sign in at mass if attending St. Matthew, or bring a bulletin from the parish where you attended mass over break.

Our last day of school before Christmas will be Thursday, December 18 and it will be a busy, fun-filled day!

  • It will be our last Jeans Day of Advent, and all monies will be used to provide a nice Christmas for the family we adopted.  Student Council kids shopped for the family earlier this week, and there is still more shopping to do!
  • The annual Christmas Store will be held, and students are invited to bring a SMALL amount of cash ($1 - $2) to spend shopping for gifts for their families. All items will be priced at a dollar or less.
  • Advent parties will begin at 2:30 unless your child's teacher has told you differently.
  • School will dismiss at the regular time, and will resume at the regular time on Monday, January 5, 2015.

The students, faculty, and staff of SMCS wish you a blessed Christmas and a safe, relaxing, and fun break!

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.
