GRATITUDE & GIVING November 14 -18

This month, we are reminded to have gratitude for what a remarkable school Matoska International is. In an effort to give back to the exceptional teachers and staff who invest in our students, we have organized the 2022 Gratitude and Giving Drive. More details on ways to give back coming soon


As members of an IB school, we are all life-long learners! Last month our students, staff, and families participated in a first-ever Matoska Community Days on October 17th and 18th.

This change from our usual schedule allowed every one of our classroom teachers to attend a valuable IB training on inquiry. And, our students had fun participating in community-based activities here at school.

Thank you for your support in these innovative approaches to ongoing education!
