MATHEWS e-News

Links to Learning & More

We have 3 goals with our e-News this week.



  1. Reaching out to our Mavs to let you and your children know we are thinking about you and appreciate you! (See below also for a special appreciation to our volunteers!)
  2. Preparing for the 2020-2021 school year as we do this time of year, each year. (While we continue to plan for the end of this year too!)
  3. To provide you with the Learning Links for your children for 4/27-5/1.



A 'Special' Phone Call:

We wanted to share with you that our Specials team: Rick Woodard, Jon Engelking, Carol Bohnstengel (PE and Fitness), Santos Lozano, (Art), Tammy Kraman (Music) along with our school librarian, Stacey Noble will be calling our Mathews students to say 'hello'.


The calls will go to parent phone numbers, so we continue to encourage you to pick up that unknown number for the time being as that is how our teachers are able to contact you as well.


If however, you miss the call or are unable to pick-up at that time, no worries! They will leave a message that you can share with your child.


Our students love their time with their Specials teachers and with Mrs. Noble and we know they miss seeing their teachers so we hope this might be a nice bit of sunshine!


As promised, we will continue to send out our Learning Links on Sunday at 3:00 to provide parents some additional 'review and prep' time for the upcoming week before your own work week begins on Monday morning.


Please know... We will work together with you to help in any way we can. If you have any questions or need to touch base, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you and your children. We are here to help all our students be successful.


Take care of you and yours and in so doing, we take care of each other.

REACHING OUT TO OUR MATHEWS MAVS!

Missing You...ENJOY!

Parent Request for 2020-21

As we begin the process of class placements for next year (current Kinder through 4th grade), we value the input of parents who feel they have the need for special consideration for their child.


With that in mind, please adhere to the following guidelines should you feel the need to make a request:


Please indicate the qualities you are looking for in your child’s teacher.


Please do not request a teacher by name, as we will be unable to honor specific requests.


You may send your written request directly by email to the principal, at ryan.steele@pisd.edu, by May 8, 2020.


Please know careful consideration is given by current teachers, counselor and administration as to the appropriate placement of each child for the 2020-21 school year.


Thank you in advance for your support with this district guideline.
