Good evening families,

We are hoping you all enjoyed a beautiful day and were able to absorb some of that sunshine!

Just a reminder that your child's report card was sent home today, and also to sign up for a parent-teacher interview through OPTIS. Please email your child's teacher if you have difficulty with this. The system will close tomorrow morning at 10 am.

As well, we would like to draw your attention to our Virtual Book Fair Family Event which is happening tomorrow evening from 6-8pm. There is free shipping on all orders less than 35$ if you purchase during this time. This is a great opportunity to support our school, and perhaps knock some more items off of your Christmas shopping list!

Finally, today is Giving Tuesday. We suggest you give a child breakfast this year @KidsEatSmartNL! You can support Matt's Morning Munch Breakfast Club by designating your gift to St. Matthew's School. Donate online at or call 1-877-722-1996.

Have a wonderful night, and we look forward to meeting with you on Thursday.
