As in the past, our school will be participating in a holiday food drive. Students are asked to bring in non-perishable food to be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank for distribution to families in need. The canned food drive will begin the week of December 2nd and continue through December 13th. You can help your children experience the joy of giving and learn the importance of stewardship by talking to them about service to others, by helping them select food to donate, and by encouraging your children to give generously.

We are excited to announce that the Board has approved Matsumoto's Kindergarten Expansion. We will be renovating Rooms 4 and 5 to expand the classrooms to meet school compliance and also to add a new Kindergarten playground, tables, and awning structure. From now until May 15th, our school will be under construction. Since the fence area is tight between Room 7-12, we ask that parents wait at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot for students to exit. Please ask your child to meet you at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot or a different location of the school. If you need to walk down the stairs to find your child, please wait until foot traffic has lessen. Thank you in advance for your patience as we get this project underway.
