Congratulations to The Master’s School senior student and soccer star, Timothy Ennin! Timothy is pictured here with his mother Joan, as he officially signs his National Letter of Intent to play soccer at the University of Connecticut. Timothy has four brothers and one sister. His brothers also attended The Master’s School and were part of the soccer team as well. The entire family is so proud of Timothy, as he has earned a soccer scholarship to UCONN and will begin classes in the fall of 2018.

Timothy has played Varsity soccer for The Master’s School since his 8th grade year in 2013. He is a member of the New England Revolution Academy Team and has been awarded Connecticut Soccer Coaches Association All-State Player in 2016 and 2017. Timothy’s other accolades include Most Outstanding Player for Soccer at The Master’s School 2016 and Most Outstanding Athlete at The Master’s School in the 2016-2017 school year.

Ray Lagan, Head of School, commented, “I have had the pleasure of watching Timothy excel as both a student and an athlete. We are proud to send Timothy on to UCONN to represent The Master’s School.”

The Master’s School Faculty, Staff and Athletic Department also congratulate Timothy on his outstanding high school soccer career and UCONN soccer scholarship. Ed Lebo, the school’s Athletic Director and Soccer Coach speaks for everyone when he says, “You have worked hard for this honor, making the most of the gifts God has given you. We are proud of you, Timothy!”

    

In the late 1960s The Master's School was started in the minds of a few individuals. Ralph Mattson was one of these special people. He was a successful teacher and businessman who listened to God's calling, saw the vision of our biblically integrated school, and stepped out in faith to become our founding Headmaster.

He was a successful teacher and businessman who listened to God's calling, saw the vision of our biblically integrated school, and stepped out in faith to become our founding Headmaster. As Del Tomkiel (another one of our founders) once told me, we never would have had a school without Ralph and his willingness to see the vision and take the risk. If you are or were part of The Master's School in the last 48 years, we are his legacy! My life's calling started with a conversation with Ralph Mattson when I was in grade 7. I'm sure there are many others who can look back at a pinpointed time with Ralph that impacted their lives.  I would like to personally invite you to be part of celebrating his life through notes, tributes, and attendance at his memorial service. We have the special and unique opportunity to honor and thank the wife and family of a man who began our "education from the inside out." If you would like to email or write a note, please send it to The Master's School (address below), identified with his name, and we will give it to the family at the memorial service. Please pray for his immediate and extended family as they mourn his loss.

Ralph Mattson

Ralph T. Mattson went to be with his Heavenly Father on February 10, 2018. He was born in Brooklyn NY in 1933. Ralph served his country in the U.S. Army as an MP, after which he graduated from Pratt Institute and Harvard University. He then moved to Canton Center, CT. He taught Art and Humanities at Farmington High School for 10 years, during which time he received the Connecticut Teacher of the Year Award. He then became founding Headmaster of The Master's School in Simsbury, CT. Following were years at People Management, then with his own organization, The DOMA Group. Ralph was the author/co-author of six books. Central to the many joys of his life were his deep faith, his family, friends, teaching, and J. S. Bach. He leaves behind his wife of 59 years, Carolyn, four children and grandchildren, all whom he dearly loved: daughter Karyn Bigham and her husband David and daughter Anna; son David and his wife Tanja and daughters Janelle and Kareena; son Glenn and his son Jesse; daughter Lynn Anne Sharp and her husband Dean and daughter Emma; also a sister, Carol Imperato and her husband Andrew; and a brother, J. Stanley Mattson and his wife Jean. The family thanks Apple Rehab, Avon for their excellent care, compassion, and many kindnesses. The family also thanks Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care. There will be no calling hours. A memorial service celebrating Ralph's life will be held at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, 124 Old Farms Road, Simsbury, CT on Saturday, March 3rd at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Quail Ministries, 121 West Avon Road, Unionville, CT 06085 or The Master's School, 36 Westledge Road, West Simsbury, CT 06092.

 

"At the end, it is clear that love is the
grand theme of creation and the Kingdom of God."

Join us on March 9, 10, or 11 for one of William Shakespeare's most beloved comedies. Presented in modern English, A Midsummer Night's Dream tells the story of thwarted love, feuding fairies, and mischief aplenty. When Hermia's father insists she marry Demetrius (a man she doesn't love), Hermia and her true love Lysander decide to escape Athens so they can be together. But their plan is thwarted when Hermia's best friend tells Demetrius of their flight. He follows them into the forest where the king and queen of the fairies are in the middle of a feud. Add to this a magical flower, a royal wedding, mistaken identity, and a play-within-a-play, and you have the perfect recipe for this delightful production. Evening performances on March 9 and 10 are at 7:30 p.m.; matinee performances on March 10 and 11 are at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and at www.masterschool.org/playtickets.
