We are 'All-In' this Together at Mathews!
And in a blink we say goodbye to our first semester of 2019-2020, as well as to 2019!
We look forward with anticipation to the upcoming year, the upcoming decade!
May we have 2020 vision as we look to the new year! (Pun alert!)
We wish all our Mathews Mavs a happy and safe winter break filled with laughter and joy (and maybe a good book or two!)
Mathews staff returns on Monday, January 6. But don't let those cars fool you!
We reopen for our students on Tuesday, January 7 bright and early at 7:00 a.m.
Below is lots of information to enjoy. Included is our recently approved calendar for the
2020-2021 school year. Please note our new start time. 7:40 a.m (2020-2021). This is five minutes earlier than this year. We will continue to open our school at 7:00 a.m.
So, 2019 is a 'wrap'. Thank you for making it special.
And yes, we are looking forward to Tuesday, January 7!
From the gift card trees, to the wonderful meals, to the personal size hand sanitizers, (Tis the season for those!) your kindness is genuinely appreciated.
Thank you for our winter break parties that brought excitement and joy to our students as we wrap up our first semester and all leave to celebrate time with family and friends.
We look forward to seeing your children back January 7 and continuing to work with you together because at Mathew, we are "All-In" this together.
