Today is one of the most exciting days of a school year. . . the First Day of School! The staff and I have worked hard this summer to get everything ready and now the awaited day is here. The greatest sound in a school is the sound of children in the classrooms and hallways! We at Matthews Elementary know that this is going to be our best year yet! Our goal is to always do better than our best. We have many exciting events planned for the school year and we look forward to working with all of our students, parents and community members. In closing, I’d like to share a quote from Dwight D. Eisenhower, “Accomplishment will prove to be a journey, not a destination.” As we embark on the 2017-2018 school year, we would like to thank all of you for joining us on our journey!
