Mattos Family Updates

Mattos Elementary is the home of the Eagles, where our students are soaring into science and more! Our K-5 science magnet program offers students in the neighborhood, across Fremont, and from other neighboring cities the opportunity to critically think, communicate, be creative, and collaborate in meaningful ways in and out of our science lab and classrooms. Our new science adoption will build upon the stellar science instruction that Mattos is known for. We are excited to bring back one of our most popular PTA sponsored activities- our science docent program. We partner with the Math/Science Nucleus to provide extra science learning opportunities that you can't find elsewhere in Fremont.  

We also have an established inclusive learning model where all students are welcomed in a safe and caring learning environment. Students are provided social-emotional learning lessons focusing on growth mindset, goal setting, emotions, empathy, kindness, and problem solving. Our full-time counselor also supports students in whole class lessons, small group focused lessons, and one-on-one counseling. All staff work closely with families to maintain a strong partnership to support students develop and grow.

I am excited to meet your student(s) and family! The 2022-2023 school year is going to be full of opportunities to connect with one another in new and exciting ways. I would encourage all families to join our Mattos PTA. Our PTA is a wonderful way to connect with other families, volunteer for special events, and support our hard working staff.

Let's soar! 

Sherea Westra, Principal
