Welcome Home, Falcons!
 
We've been nurturing Falcons since 1949, and once a Falcon, always a Falcon. Welcome home.
 
Here are some photos from our most recent Young Professional Mixer - next YPM will be in Spring, 2020 (county health guidelines permitting)! !

We're glad you stopped by the St. Matthew's Parish School Alumni page. We hope you will update your contact information so you can receive invitations to our fun and fabulous alumni events and become a part of a growing network of St. Matthew's Parish School alumni who continue to Serve, Lead and Flourish long after they leave campus. Be sure to view, like, follow and visit our social media accounts - they help you reconnect with your St. Matt's friends, classmates, and teachers!
 
All former students of St. Matthew's automatically become members of the St. Matthew's Alumni Association when they graduate eighth grade. Even if you left the School earlier, you become a member after you graduate eighth grade. We hope you will join us at our many alumni gatherings, and we always welcome your visit to our magical campus. 
 
To stay connected, please update your address details and share your latest news so we can share it in the class notes section of our annual magazine The Windmill.

St. Matthew's Alumni Parents Association
 
All former parents of an alumnus or alumna of St. Matthew's automatically become members of the St. Matthew's Alumni Parents Association, no matter when your child left the School. This was a place of small and growing children, loving and nurturing teachers, the excitement of learning. It was where you and your child made the kind of life-long friends that are only born of parenting children together as a village. Become a part of the St. Matthew's Alumni Association and enjoy those memories all over again, and again! Your participation in St. Matthew's Alumni Association events will keep you up to date on additional wonderful opportunities, networking, and events for your former Falcon, too--because parenting never ends!
 
We have a number of annual special events and programs just for parents of St. Matthew's alumni parents, including a fall wine sampling event, Cin Cin, parent education speakers, and the beloved Town Fair Prequel Party, and more.
 
Please visit and Like our St. Matthew's Alumni Parents Association Facebook page to see upcoming events and learn how you can get involved!
 
Or email us at alumninews@smps.net to share your former Falcon's updates.
