We’ve Wrapped Up Another Successful Year at MW!

We’ve wrapped up another successful year at Matthew Whaley Elementary! We love all of our traditions, students, teachers, staff, and community. Please join us in saying “see you later” to our fifth grade students and some beloved staff members as they move on to new adventures. Beth Hagy and Angie Rogers will be retiring, and Bryan Cole will be continuing his teaching journey as a sixth grade history teacher at the brand new James Blair Middle School. You will all be greatly missed! Thank you for everything and we hope you all have a wonderful summer filled with fun, sun, and happiness!

Fourth Grade Visited the Fire House!

Our fourth graders participated in fire safety and the culminating activity was to visit the fire station!  They toured the fire house, watched a firefighter dress out in full gear, checked out a fire truck and its equipment, escaped from a simulated smoke situation, and put a real contained fire!
