Thank you for the past six years! Serving as principal of St. Matthew has been a great honor.
It has been a pleasure partnering with you, all the teachers and students that have made my time here such a pleasure.
Each school year ends on a note of accomplishment and excitement. Looking back on all the great accomplishments we have made this past year and excitement for summer (of course!), but also for the next grade level. We say good-bye to our 8th graders knowing they are on a faith-filled path to success in high school.
The new Principal will be Mrs. Julie Prepotente. Mrs. Prepotente was a graduate of nearby Shorewood High School, the University of Washington, and the University of Notre Dame. She has been our Kindergarten teacher for the past 21 years.
During her years at St. Matthew School, Mrs. Prepotente has had leadership experience as the Student Council Advisor, Leadership Team Coordinator, and Lead Teacher. She brings local experience in curriculum development, parent and community involvement, and staff development. She is a lifelong Catholic who truly lives her faith.
Thank you for your on-going support and cooperation. I will miss the exceptional people I have met over the years and will always treasure the many fond memories of the students, parents, family members, and staff here at St. Matthew School.
May God bless you always.
