Well wishes for the Christmas Break

The staff of St. Matthew's Elementary would like to wish all St. Matthew's families a blessed and joyful Christmas and a wonderful start to the New Year!  May we continue to seek God's light as we take time to ponder the wonder of His birth.  We also send well wishes to Mrs. Cebrero who is now off on maternity leave and to Mrs. Chem who is onto new adventures as she journeys into retirement!  May God continue to guide and bless them both!
