Welcome to Mattos

Mattos Elementary is the home of the Eagles, where our students are soaring into science and more! Our K-5 science magnet program offers students in the neighborhood, across Fremont, and from other neighboring cities the opportunity to critically think, communicate, be creative, and collaborate in meaningful ways in and out of our science lab and classrooms. Our science specialists and classroom teachers implement Amplify, our district’s adopted science program, to build upon the stellar science instruction that Mattos is known for. Mattos is also continuing its partnership with the Math Science Nucleus (MSN) in two ways this school year- grade level projects and science docent program. We partner with the Math/Science Nucleus to provide extra science learning opportunities that you can't find elsewhere in Fremont. We are grateful to FUSD and Mattos PTA for supporting this important work. 

We also have an established inclusive learning model where all students are welcomed in a safe and caring learning environment. Our S.O.A.R. expectations are being implemented this year to ensure students are Safe, Open Minded, Acting Responsibly, and Respectful. I’m very excited to implement this school-wide positive behavior system together with staff and students. Additionally, students are provided social-emotional learning lessons focusing on growth mindset, goal setting, emotions, empathy, kindness, and problem solving. Our full-time counselor also supports students in whole class lessons, small group focused lessons, and one-on-one counseling. All staff work closely with families to maintain a strong partnership to support students develop and grow.

Mattos Elementary School has a strong community of support for all our students. I would encourage all families to join our amazing Mattos PTA. Your membership can help us continue to provide programs and support for students that strongly make a difference.  There are many events, like our PTA-sponsored Science Nights and Fall Festival, that your family will enjoy attending this year. 

I wish everyone a wonderful 2023-2024 school year!

Soaring together in education,
