Keep Mathews Elementary a Family
Mathews Elementary is more than just a school. It is a place where our children come to learn and grow, becoming empowered with the knowledge and skills they need to begin successful careers as students. Every faculty and staff members is vital to that process. From the Principal and Vice Principal, to the dedicated teachers and para-professionals, everyone who works there has an important role to play in the development of each child in the school.
None touch the lives of so many children though as our two beloved custodians, Mr. Cleo and Mr. Brown. They have worked tirelessly at Mathews Elementary for almost 30yrs. From a kind word, to a joke and a smile- these two gentlemen have integrated their way into the hearts of the children and become a fixture at our school. They have comforted children who are grieving, made a child laugh when they have had a bad day and have shared in the schools many successes. In short, Mathews Elementary would not be the school family it is without Mr. Brown and Mr. Cleo.
It is because of this that we, the parents of Mathews Elementary School, respectfully ask that the Muscogee County School Board of Education reconsider the proposal to remove Mr. Brown and Mr. Cleo from their position as elementary school custodians. We want to keep Mathews Elementary as it is, a family and would like Mr. Brown and Mr. Cleo to remain at Mathews Elementary for as long as they wish. With nearly three decades of service to Mathews, we believe that it would honor them and us if they remained where they have served the children of Muscogee County for so long and so tirelessly.
Please support our efforts by signing the petition below and calling or writing to the Muscogee County School Board of Education. If you would like to attend the board meeting in support of this petition please come March 27th @6pm to Public Education Center 2960 Macon Rd.
