We are 'All-In' this Together at Mathews!
Fall Break Begins!
The semester is flying by. Hard to believe the next time we see each other it will be December 2!
We wish all our Mathews families a safe and wonderful fall break! Be thankful for your family and friends as that is what matters most.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Mathews!
Pie! OH MY!
What a 'sweet' way to be remembered! We are truly blessed at Mathews with the kindness and support we have from our families. Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Food Drive
Kindness and Caring x 250 x 5!!!! Oh My!!!!!
It is also a wonderful time to teach children empathy and how small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
Our can food drive was a beautiful success. Our Mathews spirit of kindness and heart is second to none. Our goal was to donate 250 cans. This would be the equivalent of one can donation per family. We have clearly surpassed our goal and the children are truly excited.
We are excited to share that we easily exceeded 1,300 cans!
We look forward to our drawing when we return on Monday, December 2 to read to classes!
Thank you for participating as a family in this meaningful act of kindness. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to 'be the difference in the world.'
