Pride in Matheny-Withrow

Welcome to the Matheny-Withrow Elementary School website.  We are proud of our school and invite you to explore our website to learn more about our story. Our staff is a collaborative coalition of dedicated educators who work relentlessly to provide our students with an educational experience that reflects genuine care with a focus on learning and academic excellence. We are a community of educators engaged in a continuous process of academic improvement for all of our students and ourselves. 

We encourage our students to embrace diversity and respect cultural differences and traditions.   Collectively there is pride in maintaining a climate of academic excellence which challenges, encourages and supports all students in reaching both their academic and emotional potential.  Our primary focus is on facilitating the education of the whole child and fostering a well rounded student who has integrity and a natural sense of self worth.

As we strive to create a full service community school, we invite you to join the journey. I look forward to working with all of you to provide our students with the opportunities, guidance, and support necessary to succeed. I value your input and welcome hearing from you at any time. It's going to be a great year at Matheny-withrow!

Mrs. Hulcher :)
