A Little Bit About Us

We are Matthew Whaley parents, friends and grandparents volunteering time in multiple ways to support our school! We raise funds at the Strawberry Festival, Whaley Walk, and sales of merchandise and spirit wear. We use that money to fund field trips and enriching activities for every grade, for financial support to school programs (Partners in Print, Brain Pop licensing, school performances), to offer scholarships to summer camps, to create and maintain the outdoor classroom and Mattey's Garden, and to remind our teachers, staff and bus drivers how much we appreciate all they do for our students every day! We are always looking for ways to have a positive impact and hope you will support and join us this year! Contact us at


Thursday, August 29, 4:00-6:00 pm
