We have been busy all summer reviewing data, planning instruction, cleaning and painting the buildings and hiring new personnel. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience for your child. Our senior graduation rate this June was 98.9 percent! An area of focus for next year will be Reading Literacy in the grades K-8. The new SOL tests have proved to be challenging. With your help and support in reading, our students will succeed.
Mathews County Public Schools is committed to not just meeting the challenges of SOL testing. We are committed to the overall success of our students. We cannot do it alone. Communication with your child's teacher is important. Question your child and the teachers if you are not sure of something. Together we will make school a positive experience.
The economy is slowly picking up. However, if you are unable to pay for any school fees, simply let your school principal know and it may be waived. In effort to save expenses and trees, our Student Conduct Guidelines and Other Important Information is available online at www.mathews.k12.va.us. If you would like a printed copy please contact your child's school.
It is a joy and a privilege to work with your children each and every day.
David J. Holleran, Ed.D.
