Thank you, Mrs. Richards

After 14 years of joyful service to Saint Matthias, Mrs. Vivian Richards will be leaving for a position in the Archdiocese of Baltimore on April 15th. We are so thankful for all she has done with ensuring families are supported from the day they inquire about the school until the day they graduate. The search for her replacement will begin this week.

Spring Musical

Tickets are going fast for the Spring Musical Uncle Phil's Diner 2. Performances are April 15, 16 & 17. Don't miss seeing your student in this hilarious sequel.

Save the Date

On Sunday, May 1st the Academy will be hosting an afternoon tea and silent auction. The baskets that the classes created will be auctioned off as well as other great items. The cost for this event will be $10 so plan to join us from 2:00 - 4:00 pm for an afternoon of tea and sweet treats. Volunteers will be needed to make this event a success. Stay tuned for signup genius later in the week.

Assessment information

Last spring, students took the PARCC assessment. Next week, the result of that assessment will be going home to parents. Please remember this is just one snapshot into your child's performance on one test. Overall, the results systemically show that a student’s chances for success (college and career readiness) is doubled if they attend an Archdiocese of Washington Catholic school over a Maryland or DC public or charter school.

Mismatch Day is Friday!

What is mismatch day? Students are allowed to dress up for fun, in wild colors, with mismatched sneakers, socks, and backwards pants.

Healing Prayers

Saint Matthias will be hosting healing prayers following the 6:00 pm Mass on Sunday, April 17. Confession will be available during the healing prayers. All are welcome.
