"I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of His righteousness."  Isaiah 61:10

It was almost eight years ago when Mr. Czinder raced into my office waving a playbill from "Annie, Jr." and exuberantly announced, "we must do This Show!" At that time, Miss Stephanie Price served as our music teacher and his idea needed no convincing from her, the staff, or the parents... and as a result..."Annie, Jr." became the very first musical that St. Matthew Lutheran School performed. Since this time, spectacular musicals such as "Willy Wonka, Jr.", "Honk, Jr.", "Dear Edwina, Jr." "Seussical, Jr.", "Little Mermaid, Jr.", and "Peter Pan, Jr." have followed, but we will always be endeared to Annie, as she started this fabulous theatrical journey.

Welcome Back, Mrs. Brown!

What an exciting year for our second graders as they have been blessed with TWO amazing teachers!  During the first quarter, they were able to learn and grow from Mrs. Lenghart, who so graciously filled in during Mrs. Brown's maternity leave.  Now, they are blessed to have Mrs. Brown for the rest of the school year!  Mrs. Brown is excited to be back and is enjoying getting to know her second graders!

The seventh grade is currently learning about Greek mythology during their literature classes and expanding their writing experiences by creating some of their own unique myths.  Functioning as a Google classroom, our seventh grade has become almost paperless as most assignments are done online, including correspondence from Mrs. Weston with her feedback and suggestions.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to chat with a group of 8th graders and talk about how their final year at St. Matthew is going.  Immediately, I received the response, "It's going by way too fast!" Another jumped into the conversation by saying, "This year has been so much fun."  A new student added, "I really like how nice everyone is to each other."

Academic Highlights of How God is at Work in Our School

As you walk into the third grade classroom, you are greeted with a sign that states,  "It's A Great Day To Learn Something New".  This is a very appropriate sign because there are so many new and essential concepts being taught in third grade!
 
One exciting enhancement that Mrs. Topel is utilizing this year is a program known as "Seesaw", a 21st century form of parent communication.  Seesaw is a student driven digital portfolio that empowers students to document their learning.  Parents have access to their child's account and can view the digital assignments created throughout the school day.  Parents also have the ability to communicate words of encouragement to their child, as well as communicate with Mrs. Topel.  Third grade is really enjoying the process of integrating this new educational tool into their classroom learning.
