Mattos Family Update

August 21, 2023

Dear Mattos Families,

The first four days of school have been wonderful! Everyone has been very supportive of the important work being done at Mattos- staff, students, and families alike. The staff and I appreciate all your kindness as we returned from summer break.

There are many exciting things happening at Mattos this year. Over the next few weeks, I will share many of them with you. This year we are implementing our new Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). We officially kicked this on the first day of school with S.A.M. the Eagle making an appearance. Staff is teaching students the expected behaviors (see chart below) and students who demonstrate positive behaviors will earn S.A.M. tickets, which can later be turned in for a raffle. Beginning in September, we will open our S.A.M. Store (stay tuned for details!). I will be reviewing this more throughout the school year, including at Back to School Night.

Reminders and Announcements:
