At Matilija, we understand parents are busy and may not be able to attend Parent Support Night and other events we sponsor during the school year. To help parents engage more readily in their child’s education, our staff has designed V-School—videos for parents interested in remaining connected, and in building skill sets to support their students’ academic success.

Veterans’ Day Assembly

Matilija students gathered for an assembly to recognize local Veterans who have served their country in the armed forces. Our honorees this year were three World War II veterans. Lt. Hal Wilder, age 97, flew B-24 Liberators in the European Theater of Operations. Joining him was Ojai resident Major Tom Jamison, age 94. Mr. Jamison also piloted B-24 bombers, but in the Pacific Theater. Finally, we had Chief Master Sergeant RT Lee, age 90. A Tuskegee Airman, Mr. Lee flew vital and hazardous supply missions in South Pacific and retired as an E-9.
