Walk and Roll to School Day: The 21st annual Walk and Roll to School Day is coming up next Wednesday, October 2nd. The purpose of this special day is to promote healthy habits, to develop a sense of community, and to help the environment.
On this day, if you walk, bike, skateboard, or scooter your way to school, there will be a small prize for you! Student council members will be at the entrances of the school to hand out the prizes. Remember, if you drive to school, this does not count, even if it’s a carpool. You must walk, bike, scooter, or skateboard to school to participate. Don’t forget to wear your helmet!
Please join us in celebrating Walk and Roll to School Day on Wednesday, October 2nd!

Character Trait of the Month: September’s Character Trait of the Month has been “Respect”. Throughout the month we emphasized respecting others, respecting our homes and school, respecting ourselves, and respecting differences. It is very clear that here at Matanzas we have a school full of respectful students, and at this week’s assembly we were proud to recognize many, many students with a certificate of recognition.
