News & Events

Students at Matthews Elementary participated in The Great American Shake Out, utilizing the following earthquake preparedness:
DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.

COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand
  • If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter
  • If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall (away from windows)
  • Stay on your knees; bend over to protect vital organs

HOLD ON until shaking stops
  • Under shelter: hold on to it with one hand; be ready to move with your shelter if it shifts
  • No shelter: hold on to your head and neck with both arms and hands.

Friends Helping Friends

Today one of our students put the "PeaceBuilder Pledge" to work.  During breakfast this morning Donnie and his friend Paxson were eating together when Donnie started to cough and coudn't stop, Paxson was so worried that his friend was choking that he proceeded to pat Donnie on the back to make sure he was okay!  Donnie says that he is very thankful to have a friend like Paxson!

Matthews Thinks Pink!

Staff and students at Matthews Elementary in Matthews declared October 13th "Pink Out" day! 
While celebrating our peacebuilders of the month, we also introduced our first Community Peace Builder and Cancer Survivor Cathey Daniels!  Ms. D, as staff and students affectionately call her, lead the students in the Pledge of Allegiance and the peacebuilders pledge.  Pictured with Ms. D is Dr. Sam Duncan, Mrs. Angie Hanlin and Mrs. Melanie McCord.

We are very proud to have Ms. D as a part of our Matthews and NMCR-1 Family!

Since 1922 Fire Prevention week is observed to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire.  The theme for 2017 is “Every Second Counts” This year’s message works to better educate the public about the importance of developing a home escape plan and practicing it.  Chief Dave McClarty and Firefighter Dana Perry visited Lilbourn Elementary School students in pre-school through second grade to talk about this.  Some of the topics discussed were to teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

Students got to see a firefighter in his full protective gear. This helps children get more comfortable with firefighters, who could seem intimidating while dressed in full protective gear. Students also got to go outside and look inside the firetruck and see all the tools that firefighters use.

Thank you Mr. Dave and Mr. Dana for visiting our school!

The students and staff had such an amazingly fun time last week here at Matthews Elementary participating in homecoming activities.  It was great to see how creative everyone could be with the spirit day themes and the excitement of the parade on high school campus.  We were thrilled to learn at the beginning of the game Friday night that we were awarded FIRST PLACE for our float in the Homecoming Parade.  Other festivities at the game included NMCC Alumni singing and marching with current students and a halftime presentation to NMCC standout Kelvin Anderson!  

Thank you to Mrs. Hanlin, Miss Delisle, Mrs. Kenedy, Miss Scott, Miss Polk and Mr. Thurman for assembling and decorating the float and to all of our Matthews students and families for their participation during spirit week and at the parade!
