Parents interested in learning about the programs and curriculum offered at St. Matthew School in Champaign are invited to an Open House and Principal’s Reception on Wednesday, January 28 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. St. Matthew School offers Kindergarten through grade 8. Says St. Matthew Catholic School principal Petrece Klein, “This is a great opportunity to walk the faith-based hallways and learn about the great things St. Matthew Catholic School has to offer. We invite people of all faiths to our facilities to observe the use of technology in the classroom, see our students art in the hallways, learn about our music programs, and view the tradition in athletic and extracurricular excellence in our trophy cases. Students attend Mass weekly and live by the three R’s: Respect, Reverence, and Responsibility.”
