Welcome to Mathewson School
Hello and Welcome to Mathewson School!
At our school we take great pride in celebrating each child as an individual learner, highlighting their strengths throughout the day in many ways.
A huge part of teaching and learning is recognizing the social and emotional development of each learner. At Mathewson, our TOP DOG program focuses on what it means to be a member of a community of learners and future citizens. Throughout the course of the year this program ties our character education expectations as well as positive behavior supports to identify positive ways we take care of our community, ourselves and our school. Students will receive “paw prints” throughout the year to acknowledge their good deeds. This program helps strengthen our home-school connection thruough take home books, school assemblies and a PAWfolio (Portfolio of Academic Work) that is specific to each child.
Our active PTA organization also supports our learners' needs. Thanks to their efforts, we are pleased to announce we have a new sound system, iPads for our Art program, and document cameras to help enhance our classroom learning. Please be sure to use our website to find out about the many great social events that they help support as well! And remember -- volunteers are always welcome!
Stay in Touch - Communication Tips
Please be sure to check our website for important information that is updated throughout the year. You can also find links to our weekly and monthly publications (The Mathewson Monitor is a great resource) where you can learn about 'all things Mathewson.' Also, be sure your email address is updated on Power School so you will receive the weekly emails and other communications from our school.
We look forward to you becoming part of the Mathewson family, or being a returning member. We believe “it take a village” to help build our future scientists, mathematics, writers and authors and are happy you will celebrate your child’s achievements with us.
Best wishes for a PAWsitive year from everyone on the Mathewson staff!
Melissa Currier, Principal
