Ribbon Cutting Celebration
St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School and the Episcopal Church of St. Matthew in San Mateo celebrated the opening of St. Matthew’s Hall, located at the corner of El Camino Real and Baldwin Avenue with a ceremonial Ribbon Cutting on Sunday, September 7. The opening of St. Matthew’s Hall is an historic occasion in the life of the School and Church, as it marks the completion of state-of-the-art classroom facilities, a gymnasium, Library, Maker Lab, along with the beautification of the existing property.

The opening of St. Matthew’s Hall completes the second phase of an enhancement and expansion project that began in 2012. The new Early Childhood Center at Charles House – located at the corner of Second Avenue and El Camino Real – opened in September of 2013. This new building will enable St. Matthew’s Episcopal Day School to grow enrollment to meet growing demand for their education. Enrollment will grow each year beginning this school year with two classes each in Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Sixth Grade until full enrollment is reached in 2019. St. Matthew’s has educated students for over sixty years, providing children in Preschool through Eighth Grade an academically enriched education in heart, mind, body, and spirit. This historic event is the beginning of the church’s celebration of 150 years in San Mateo. The celebration will continue through 2015.
