We are 'All-In' this Together at Mathews!

Field Day 2019 is in the books. The weather was perfect!


A big thank you to all those who volunteered their time to be here at school today to help make this happen! We couldn't do it without you!


A big 'shout out' to Coach Bohnstengel, Coach Engelking and Coach Woodard for all their planning and hard work. Field Day is a great experience and a lasting memory of time in elementary school.


Our Peanut Butter Drive was a huge success. We passed our goal of 250 jars of peanut butter to donate to our North Texas Food Bank. Working together makes all the difference in the world!


A reminder that Monday and Tuesday, October 14 and 15 are school holidays for our students. Enjoy your three day weekend (October 12-14) with your family. But don't forget that Tuesday, October 15 is our Parent Conference Day!


Enjoy this first taste of fall weather this weekend! We look forward to Monday!
