One area we are focusing on during Lent is our sister parish in Mexico. St. Matthias Parish is collecting funds during Lent to benefit them. The school has decided to pray for the members of the parish. We are doing this by learning a prayer in Spanish. We will be videotaping grades saying the prayer to share with them as well. We have chosen a passage from Numbers for the students to learn and pray. They are learning this in Spanish. Numbers The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace. We have a few events planned for the students as we move through Lent. Each Wednesday we ask the students to come in and out of Church silently so that they can reflect on what Jesus endured for us. We have also scheduled Reconciliation on Tuesday, 10 th, for all 2 nd -8 th graders. We will have our Living Stations in the school gym on Wednesday, March 18 th. We will also have Stations of the Cross on Monday, March 30 th, which is the Monday of Holy Week at 2:00 PM in the Church. Mrs. Susan Booth The Padre Serra Tournament Our 8 th grade boys have advanced to the second round of the tournament. Please see the flyer in the mailer this week, and I hope you are able to come and cheer them on Sunday at 2:15 PM. Hot lunch/ala carte Our hot lunch program is doing well. We continue to average about 100 students a day. We have attached an updated ala carte list with prices. We did change the Friday hot option during the season of Lent. IOWA Assessment St. Matthias Parish School will be participating in the IOWA Assessment for grades 1-7 from April Please try to schedule appointments outside of these days. Also, it is important for students to get a good night s sleep and to eat a nutritious breakfast. Milwaukee Parental Choice Program We have concluded our first open enrollment period for Choice.

Strategic Planning St. Matthias Parish School is starting our strategic planning for the next 3-5 years. This process will include planning for our Catholic Identity, governance, finances, curriculum and technology. This is a very long process as we will be collecting feedback from you, students, staff, and parishioners throughout the process. The first area we will be collecting data on are school demographics and for Catholic Identity. It is very important for everyone to participate and take the time to complete these short surveys. They are less than 12 multiple choice questions each. The information we gather will help guide us in our discussions and planning. Please follow the link below to help us plan the future of St. Matthias Parish School. Parking Lot We have a lot of cars driving in and out of the parking lot during AM drop off and PM pick up. I realize we have a few drivers who have not been following the rules. I have tried to address issues with drivers as I see it or with a phone call later during the day. I am looking for parents who would be willing to help in the parking lot during these times to remind people of the correct procedures. If you would be available to help out, please contact Mrs. Booth at (414) or at Inclement Weather St. Matthias Parish School will follow the decision of the Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools in closing the school for inclement weather.
