Hey Lions - Show your school spirit this summer and share your pics on Facebook!  Take a picture out in our community or on summer vacation wearing any St. Matthew spirit shirt and post it on Facebook page using the #smcslions.   We would love to see how you are enjoying your summer and what adventures you are having.  Maybe you are having fun at Totus Tuus, checking out books from the public library or adventure mobile, at the ballpark cheering on your favorite team, heading to the pool or beach for a swim, playing at the park, at a family reunion, attending an awesome summer camp, or on vacation at a cool destination. We hope you have a great summer and we would love to see all the fun you are having while showing support for SMCS!

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.
