WALK-A-THON RESULTS The 2nd Annual St. Matthew Walk-a-thon was a HUGE success! We can’t thank our generous sponsors enough for their donations! The students raised a total of $14, 035! Twenty-one families met or exceeded the family goal of $250 or $350. We want to congratulate Emily. Her sponsors donated over $900. We thank God for the beautiful weather that we had on Monday for the walk. We thank Tom and Mike for setting up the course for us. We thank PTO for the Kona Ice treats! And we want to say a huge thank you to Brooke for chairing this very special event! The money raised will be split between the PTO and the school fundraising account.

FREE LUNCH INFORMATION The USDA is making free lunches available for ALL STUDENTS through December 31, 2020 or whenever the funds run out. They have also announced that we can backdate the free lunch waiver to the beginning of this school year. We have adjusted your children’s lunch accounts to reflect zero school lunch charges for this year. Extra entrees, extra milk, juice, and water are not included in the waiver so you will still be charged for these items.
