Welcome to Mathewson School                                               

Grades K-5                                                                                               Hello and Welcome to Mathewson School!                                                                                                

At Mathewson we take great pride celebrating all students and highlighting the individual strengths that each learner brings. We believe in strong, caring relationships between students and staff and all students in our community. Throughout the year we engage parents/families in many social and academic celebrations of learning. We work closely wit our PTA to ring diversified offerings to our students.


 At Mathewson, our BE A TOP DOG program focuses on what it means to be a member of a community of learners and future citizens by highlighting our social emotional needs and intentional kindness. 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 for acknowledgement. Over the years we have grown this program to show how PAWsitive (P=positive A=actions W=win) we can be. Be sure to check out all of our Top Dog components below. We are pleased to announce that this is our fourth year as a nationally recognized Kind Campus through the Ben's Bells Program.


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) 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.

Best wishes for a PAWsitive year from everyone on the Mathewson staff!
