St. Matthew's Elementary
Like many schools throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, St. Matthew’s School recently celebrated Literacy Day in great style. The school invited members of the community to bring in used books that they had outgrown or were no longer using. Teachers then set up a book fair where students were invited to visit the fair to get “new” books for free. This event highlighted the importance of literacy and recycling and was a huge success; all the students had new books for Literacy Day.
Also on Literacy Day, members of our school community dressed up as a book or movie character. The school's Silly Squad collected loose change and were able to make a donation to our local public library, as well as donate some of the remaining books from the book fair. With some of the books that were remaining, the school was also able to provide new books to all St. Matthew's KinderStart students.
St. Matthew’s School loves reading and recycling!
