Congratulations to our 3rd grade class on their wonderful Living Museum project!  Our 3rd graders chose a historical figure, researched that person’s life, and wrote a report.  They then dressed up like that person and presented their report as a wax museum come to life.  Teachers, students, and parents enjoyed learning together!  Pictured here are Louis Pasteur, Marie Curie, and St. Joan of Arc.

Spooky Sports Day at St. Matthias!

St. Matthias School celebrated our 4th annual Spooky Sports Day with a special guest, Cincinnati Red (and former Cub) Sean Marshall!601442_617852144920279_1113409885_n

Students were surprised after entering their gymnasium when Marshall was introduced as a special guest there to help teach them why it’s important to always do your best.

“You have to work really hard to achieve your goals and sometimes even then things don’t work out the way you hope.” Marshall told the kids. “I was cut from the baseball team in 9th grade and thought about giving up. Instead, with my parent’s encouragement, I tried out again the next year and made it. So, believe in your self, listen to your teachers and drink your milk,” said the MLB reliever before spending the morning cheering the kids on and even participating in the some of the fun.

Each year, in lieu of sugar-loaded parties, our students are grouped together by houses to participate in annual Halloween games, such as Sweep the Pumpkin, Costume Relay and Wrap the Mummy, to earn points and compete for the coveted Mustang Cup.  Team Green earned the bragging rights this time.
