The school will be closed: Thursday, October 7th through Monday, October 11th.
We wanted to take the opportunity to say a BIG Thank You for participating in our fundraisers so far. Our school relies on them to provide some extra learning materials for our school. Here is what has been raised so far for 2021:
T-shirt fundraiser: $500
10,000 Scholastic Points for September book orders
We have the most creative teachers and we love to show off their skills during our annual pumpkin auction fundraiser! Pumpkins will be on display on our website, Facebook page, and in the preschool lobby. The auction and voting on your favorite will take place from October 18th through October 25rd.
Fire Educator Visit
In recognition of fire safety month, Gwinnett County Firefighters will visit the preschool again on Friday, Oct 1 @ 10:30 to teach our students about fire safety.
We will have specific days each month when everyone can wear their St. Matthew’s t-shirts. Our spirit wear days for this month are Friday, October 15th and Tuesday, October 26th. Thank you to everyone for your orders.
Yes! We wear our costumes on Halloween! Please refrain from wearing anything that would be scary. For children in diapers or who are toilet training, make sure the costume is easily accessible or removable. Bring extra clothes if needed. Parties will be held on Thursday, October 28 and Friday, October 29.
