Forces and Motion
On Friday Feb 2nd we had our new in person assembly Forces and Motion.
Students had an amazing time learning about the world of Physics and how it affects our everyday lives with Forces and Motion though an exciting and interactive program.
Topics included demonstrations on inertia, laws of motion, rotational forces, energy and Law of Conservation of Energy.
Social and Emotional Learning
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
SEL advances educational equity and excellence through authentic school-family-community partnerships to establish learning environments and experiences that feature trusting and collaborative relationships, rigorous and meaningful curriculum and instruction, and ongoing evaluation. SEL can help address various forms of inequity and empower young people and adults to co-create thriving schools and contribute to safe, healthy, and just communities.
We are partnering with Soul Shoppe. https://soulshoppe.org/ for a mix of online and in-person sessions exploring social emotional learning topics.
This initiative also aligns with one of our goals this year that we had outlined which was to focus on student and staff well being.

Magic of Science and Bubbles
PTA hosted our second in person Blossoms events on Dec 9th 2022.
We had 2 separate programs one catered for TK-2 where the focus was more on the fun with bubbles and the second for 3-6 graders which was more science and learning based.
We had a great response, our students very much enjoyed it.
It was a morning filled with fun, laughter and learning.

Donate to PTA
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.
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.
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!

Thank you Ms. Leslie and Ms. Misun who have helped us co-ordinate and run this program.
Phoenix Bazaar is a PTA sponsored program run in partnership with the School where kids are awarded 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"
PTA welcomes you to 2022-23 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 email@example.com. We would love to hear back from parents and work with them for solutions, innovations, complaints, feedback, and ideas.
2022-23 is our 4th year at Mattos and the 1st year at full capactiy after the school construction completed early this year. We are just getting started. We look forward to all parents joining us and our kids in this journey !!
