Principal's Message

July 31, 2018

Dear Matoaca Family,

It is with great excitement that I welcome each of you to the 2018-19 school year at Matoaca High School. I could not be more thrilled to kick off another year and promote a sense of togetherness, spirit, model citizenship, and academic excellence. A new school year brings
with it a sense of excitement and renewal – fresh starts, new teachers and friends, and ways to become invested in our school community through extracurricular involvement.

Appreciating that it will take all of us to put our best Matoaca forward, please join us at the following events to be better prepared for the upcoming year:

Fee Day (Grades 10-12): Wednesday, August 22 from 9:00am-3:00pm.
  • You will be able to pay fees, fill out all paperwork, obtain parking decals, tour the building, drop off medications, join the PTO, purchase Warrior Wear, etc. You may come at a time most convenient for you during this timeframe.
Orientation and Fee Day (9th and New Students): Thursday, August 30 from 9:00am-12:00pm.
  • Please arrive by 9:00am as this is a formal program during which students and parents will be exposed to the Matoaca way.
  • Following the orientation activities, you may pay fees, receive your schedule, fill out all paperwork, purchase Warrior Wear, etc.
Back to School Night: Monday, September 17 from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

The Matoaca community is one that is built upon shared input and togetherness. With this in mind, there are many opportunities to give back through volunteerism. As well, our PTO and respective booster organizations are only as successful as the number of active members. Please consider a leadership role, attending our monthly meetings (check school website), or simply becoming a member to better activate your voice in our shared vision of doing what is best for our Matoaca community.

The Matoaca faculty and staff are eager to begin this school year and welcome Matoaca’s finest, our students, into their respective classrooms. Please enjoy what remains of summer vacation and know that I look forward to working alongside each of you as we are better as One. One School, One Community, One Matoaca. Go Warriors!

All in,

John T. Murray, Ed. D.
