Spirit Store

Missed out on Mattos T-Shirt for your child? We are here. To give new and existing families a chance to purchase Mattos T-shirts, we will be running a school spirit store between now and Sep 24th. Please help us in making sure that your child gets the correct size by placing your order no later than Sep 24th. Our bulk order goes out Sep 25th, and you will receive a notification as soon as we get the delivery.

Place your order

Since sizes vary with different t-shirt styles, please use the size chart to measure and decide your student’s size.

Sorry no exchanges are available because we will not purchase extra stock. Please choose your size carefully.


All Youth T-Shirts are $15


All students are generally able to wear these to school on Fridays. Please contact the school front desk if you have questions regarding the uniform policy.

Donate to PTA

General Fund

At Mattos, our pledge drives work a little different from some of the other schools. Here instead of parents bringing in supplies year-round to the classrooms, we make it a little simple by taking care of that year-round. For this reason, we do one fundraising at the start of the school year. You can choose to donate to the General Fund or our Special MPR fund this year or both.

To allow us to cover everything from school supplies to programs, events, field trips, and much more we recommend a donation of $150 per child for the school year.

MPR Fund

This is a special 2 year campaign for collecting funds that will go towards building a Multi Purpose Room here at Mattos. Any donation of $300 or more will be recognized by a Leaf on our Donation tree. The last day to donate towards MPR and pick a leaf would be Oct 31, 2021.

Thanks to the generosity of our Mattos families & the MCEE grant that we were awarded, we have raised $32,000 towards the MPR Outdoor Stage & $16,000 towards General PTA fund in 2020-21! We are extremely grateful to have such a caring and dedicated community.

We are asking for your continued support of our annual pledge drive. We are providing parents with an option to direct their donation to either the General Fund or our MPR Fund in 2021-22 as well.

PTA welcomes you to 2021-22 school year

Our PTA is made up of so many important pieces - parents, teachers, grandparents, guardians, school staff, and others in the community that want to improve the educational lives of our children.

The PTA provides a variety of activities, fundraisers, and services throughout the year. It is our hope that every family can participate, so we can better serve our children and their needs – which includes enhancing their school day and giving them memories they’ll always treasure.

We aim to be the bridge between parents, kids, and their teachers and school. If there is any area you feel PTA can help out please send us an email at info@mabelmattospta.org. We would love to hear back from parents and work with them for solutions, innovations, complaints, feedback, and ideas.

This is our third year at Mattos and we are just getting started. We look forward to all parents joining us and our kids in this journey that lies ahead !!

PTA Programs

Blossoms Program

We launched Blossoms in 2020, an enrichment endeavor that aims to inculcate and cultivate varying skills in students by means of bi-monthly themes, with a vision to engage them in learning beyond school.

Just as blossoms on a tree denote their future fruition, our Blossoms Program symbolically represents our students with many hidden talents and skills, only awaiting their bloom!

We successfully kicked off Blossoms with our first Program Wondrous Wildlife in Oct 2020. We had over 220 kids participate and 500 fun fact entries submitted. Over the year we held 5 different events and a movie night and had more than 800 kids participate across different topics as part of Blossoms.

Thank you for making it such a success.

Phoenix Bazaar

Phoenix Bazaar is a PTA sponsored program run in partnership with the School where kids are rewarded points for all good actions they take throughout the year be it for helping another child, showing qualities like unity, courage, perseverance, respect, peacefulness, confidence, kindness, justice, generosity, thankfulness, determination to name a few.

They then exchange these points for gifts every month at the "Phoenix Bazaar"
