Meet Matthew who attends the 5th grade at Academy of Our Lady of Grace and is SET FOR SUCCESS! When asked what he looks forward to this upcoming year in school he was quick to reply “get on the Principal’s Honor Roll List this year”. Although school just started for the 2017-2018 year, he is already working on writing an essay about the recent Lunar Eclipse experience.
Matthew spent the summer playing football for the North Bergen recreation team as a Left Tackle and is looking forward to playing baseball this year. He also went to visit Mexico this summer and enjoyed visiting with family there.
Matthew has a sister who is currently attending Paramus Catholic High School and she has her sights set on becoming a lawyer. He is very grateful for the scholarship from SFIC because his family would not be able to afford the cost of a Catholic education without the assistance. “I want to thank you for helping my mom pay for us to go to school.”
Although he is not sure what he would like to do in the future he is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his big sis and attend Paramus Catholic once he graduates.
