Mission Statement

At Matheson Park Elementary School, our purpose is to provide an open and affirming learning atmosphere with attention to safety and a nurturing environment. While valuing all people, we will encourage effort and expect achievement with regard to all state standards and national guidelines. Our goal is to show measurable increases in all academic levels and to provide rich opportunities for building life-skills.

SUCCESSFUL First Week of School


School is off to a smooth start this year!  


Kindergarteners started on Friday, with relatives attending the informational "Boo Hoo Breakfast" where it was definitely okay to cry.  


As a reminder, all students at Matheson Park receive free breakfast and lunch.  Students who have not received their breakfast by the 7:40 bell will be asked to go to class so they are not late.  Please make sure your children are arriving at school with enough time to eat breakfast but not before 7:30.  


Our principal, Mrs. Harper has met many of our families and looks forward to continuing to get to know the Matheson families.

New Bus Stop

There is a new bus stop this year at Claremont and Algodones that was created so that the students don't have to cross Juan Tabo.  Bus 98 picks up students at that stop at 7:21.  If this is close to your house, it is a safer bus stop for your child.
