Matheny Superhero Staff greeted families and shared information about registration on August 6th! Hoola hoops and snacks were distributed to everyone! The hard work by the staff made a big difference! A 60% increase in students registering on registration day this year as compared to last year occurred!! It was fun and a great way to start a super new school year!
