Welcome back to another school year at St. Matthias Catholic Academy!

This week, 9-17-18 to 9-21-18, begins our regular Gym schedule for all classes. Please make sure all students are dressed in the proper Gym uniform on their scheduled GYM day. The uniform is purchased at Flynn & O’Hara where the regular school uniforms are also purchased. Right now students wear: blue St. Matthias T-shirt, blue St. Matthias shorts or sweatpants, and black or white sneakers only. If you are a new student and are waiting for your Gym uniform, you can wear something else on your Gym day until you receive your complete uniform. Sometimes parts of the uniform are out of stock at the Flynn & O’Hara location.

Gym classes are in full swing. Grades 4 to 7 are playing flag football as the first unit of instruction. We have learned how to pass, receive and run offensive plays to score touchdowns. We have also learned how football begins with a throw-off. The competition is fierce and the students are showcasing their talent. We have had some exciting games so far. Stay tuned for team updates as the unit comes to a close in a few weeks. The younger classes are working on cooperative games and teamwork. They have been introduced to topple tubes and played some activities to increase their eye hand coordination as well as motor skills. Grade 8 is choosing a sport, game or activity appropriate for their age and explaining it to the class as they take individual turns. This will give them leadership experience and allow us to learn new games to play. So far, we have played Floor Hockey, Scooter Freeze Tag, Wiffleball and Sideline Soccer.
