6th Grade Registration for 2015-2016 School Year 

Mattaponi’s 5th grade students took home a letter requesting registration for middle school.  All parent/guardians must come to Mattaponi ES by May 18th to register for the 2015/2016 school year.  If you do not register by May 18th, you must register at the newly assigned middle school in the fall.  Please bring your photo ID and your current proof of residence (current mortgage statement, current tax bill, or current signed lease/rental agreement).

Ebooks online 

I have to extend another apology regarding the online book site, Tumble Books.  Unfortunately, the county has not renewed licenses for any online book sites due to budget constraints.  So, we do not have access to Tumble books.  I will continue to research other sites to prepare for summer reading.


Green By Choice 

Thank you to the Mt. Airy Garden Club who made a monetary donation to help support the rain and sun gardens at Mattaponi Elementary.  They will also be here April 25th to volunteer their time to help beautify Mattatponi ES on Earth Day. 

We are asking for donations to help complete the funding for our Sun Garden and Rain Garden.  The Chesapeake Bay Trust grant covers only half the cost of both gardens.  Students are now participating in a fund raiser at the school “Pennies for Plants-Bucks for Bark” to help complete the funding of the gardens.  The class that raises the most money will win a dress down day.  We will plant the gardens at our Earth Day Celebration on April 25th.  Please mark your calendar so that you can join us for our Earth Day Celebration at Mattaponi Elementary.  


Clothing To Cash Recycling Program  

Please remember to send in your New and Used Clothing, Shoes, Sneakers, Towels and Textiles - each and every item counts!!!  Place the donated items in a bag, tie it up, and drop it in our Recycling Bin.  All monies earned will help to defer cost for other programs and events at our school.
