            "There are far better things ahead than anything we leave behind" By C.S.Lewis



 Welcome to St. Matthews K-8 


Dear SMK8 Students,

SMK8 faculty and staff misses each of you. We know that this is a change to your daily schedule.
Change is often times difficult. Honestly, some of you are enjoying this time out of school.
That is natural and ok. Many things are being said that you may or may not understand.
We ask that you use all of your SMK8 character skills to do and be the very best “you” you can be.
Cardinal character counts! Continue to love and care for each other.
We love you. 
1. HANDS: Wash them often.
2. ELBOW: Cough into it.
3. FACE: Don't touch it.
4. SPACE: Keep safe distance.
5. HOME: Stay if you can.
“Together we have, can, and will do what’s best for each of you."
SMK8 Administration
