A Message from the Board of Education : January 2022 boe message

I would like to thank the Board of Directors for their vote of confidence by electing me to serve as board president this year. In reflection, the past 2 years I have served on the board have been very challenging to say the least. I highly commend the staff, children, and families for being flexible and patient as administration continually adapts and enacts new requirements in response to meet the challenges presented by the covid pandemic.  Every effort is being made to help our staff, children, and families stay safe and healthy as we welcome everyone back after the holiday break. 

Mathews High School students learn to play guitar through new course offering guitar

Recognizing that not all students who enjoy music are able to or want to join band or choir, Mathews High School decided to launch a new music class this school year.  Students in grades 9-12 are now able to take guitar class with band director David Ottney, who actually began his journey into music on a guitar.

Guitar was my gateway into the music world. When I was 10, my dad got me my own acoustic guitar and book of Beatles songs and I was hooked,” said teacher David Ottney.  “My goal for this class was to provide a similar experience for our students at Mathews High School. Specifically, we were targeting certain kids who have a passion for music, but might not fit in the traditional band or choir setting.”
