Dear Families, 

   Welcome back to a new school year!  My name is Mrs. Ruth Matheny, and I will be one of your child’s 3rd grade teachers.  This will be my sixth year teaching at Central Elementary School. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades, but 3rd is my favorite!

     This year I will be teaching Science to all third graders, as well as Reading and Math to my homeroom class.  Mrs. West will be your child’s teacher for Social Studies and Ms. Munn will be your child's Writing teacher.

     As you know, your child will be taking the Virginia SOL assessments for the first time this year.  We will partner together to prepare your child for these assessments throughout the year.  I am excited to build a stronger relationship with your child and I look forward to having a productive year together.  I love teaching and I look forward to all of the exciting things we will explore and learn together!  We will have a wonderful year!

Chaperones and volunteers must complete a background check prior to serving as a chaperone or volunteer. There is no charge for the background check: however, results of the check can sometimes take several weeks. Therefore, you should complete the background check well in advance of scheduled field trips or activities you wish to chaperone or participate in as a volunteer.  For more information about obtaining a background check, click here.
