St. Matthew Preschool follows Lee’s Summit R-7 School District calendar.  Preschool will begin August 28, 2023, and will end no later than the Friday before Memorial Day.  If Lee’s Summit schools are closed, the preschool is closed except if the school district is just closed due to extreme cold or an in-service day we do not follow.  We observe religious holidays and may be closed even if the school district is not. When closed we may offer some virtual learning on those days.



Field Trips - We take a limited number of field trips away from the building because parents are required to attend. This creates challenges for families who home-school, have younger children at home, or are working part-time.  Some of the field trips have been:

Faulkner’s Pumpkin Farm – October (a parent must attend)

Zoo – April (a parent must attend)



Special Events – Special Events are planned during the preschool day but at a time that working parents may be able to adjust their schedules to attend.  These special events are designed to help the children build confidence and have fun.  Some of these events include:

Sept - Muffins with Misses

Oct – Halloween Parade in costume and party

Nov – Thanksgiving Feast 

Dec – Christmas Program 

Jan - Lutheran's School Week and Special Person's Day

Feb - Valentine's Party

April - Donuts with Dudes

 May – End of Year Celebration – Last day of school
