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.
We are thrilled to announce that St. Matthias School was selected as one of 50 award winners from a pool of more than 3,000 applicants for the 2013 Subaru Healthy Sprouts Garden Grants administered by the National Gardening Association and funded by Subaru of America. Our program is one of 47 to receive a $500 Award Package. This award will be used to continue our project in the garden area outside of Door 2 along Ainslie. Thank you to all of the members of our Garden Project Committee for their hard work to win this award!
Congratulations to our sixth grade Gallagher Scholars who had the opportunity to visit the Loyola University Museum of Art! There, they received a guided tour and enjoyed a pizza party with Mr. Gallagher. The Gallagher Scholarship is sponsored by the Big Shoulders Fund.
St. Matthias School celebrated our 4th annual Spooky Sports Day with a special guest, Cincinnati Red (and former Cub) Sean Marshall!
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.
