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

We hope this first week of fall has been a wonderful one for our Mavs!

The book fair was such a joy with children enjoying the opportunity to pick out their favorite new story, enjoy "Grand" parents luncheon, as well as Family Night on Thursday. it was so much fun throwing 'snow' balls at Mr. Steele! A special shout out to our PTA and parent volunteers. We could not do this without you!

Remember, that Friday, October 4 is Field Day! Water bottles, caps, and sunscreens are a must! Thank you to each of you who will be able to join us that day as a volunteer!

Monday is our last day for our Peanut Butter drive supporting the North Texas Food Bank for Collin County. Let's end it on a BIG note with everyone bringing a jar on Monday! How cool would that be!

Let's let our children experience how working together we can make a big difference even with small acts of kindness.

And if you have already supported our Peanut Butter drive with a donation, please accept our sincere appreciation.
