 Please note that this is not a regular day of school for children and thus, there is NO SCHOOL for students on this day. You and your child just need to come in for your​ ​scheduled​ ​time.​

Please​ ​note​ ​that​ ​this​ ​conference​ ​will​ ​be​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​the​ ​social,​ ​emotional​ ​and​ ​behavioural​ ​aspects​ ​of your​ ​child's(ren's)​ ​progress.

Remembrance Day Assembly and Poppies for Purchase

Our Grade 3 class will be leading us in a Remembrance Day Assembly on Thursday, November 9 at 9:00 am in our school gym.  All family members and St. Matthew's parishioners are welcome to attend this assembly.

In addition, we will be selling poppies starting on Monday, November 6 until Thursday, November 10, 2017.  A donation of a loonie (or more) would be appreciated.  All proceeds from the sale of these poppies go towards supporting our Canadian veterans.  Thank you in advance for your support.


School Mass 

Join us at our next school Mass on Friday, November 10.  Our Grade 6 class will help lead the liturgy.  Mass begins at 9:00 am - all are welcome!


School Uniform

As the weather turns colder please note that students are reminded to bring a warm jacket to school each day.  Gloves, and a hat are also a good idea. Girls are allowed to wear tall socks or tights but, note that pants are not permitted under girls' tunics or kilts.

Please ensure that all articles of clothing are clearly marked with your child's name.  Thank you for your cooperation!



Turn Back Your Clocks

A friendly reminder:  at 2:00 am on Sunday, November 5, Daylight Savings Time ends.  We will all need to "turn back" our clocks by 1 hour!  Enjoy the "extra" hour of sleep!
