Our First Bluebonnet!!!!

Check out the blooming of our first Bluebonnet! Our kids have anxiously awaited this moment since we first did our Bluebonnet Stomp last year. For some, you may recall, the Bluebonnet Stomp of 2021 was our first moment to have our students, staff and community gathered in one place since the start if the pandemic. This year we continued with the tradition with some uncertainty of if or when we would see our first bloom.

This one bloom represents OUR journey through a global pandemic and numerous other challenges we have faced since. Let's take a moment to reflect on this journey and celebrate what we have OVERCOME TOGETHER as Mustang Nation!

Food Program @ Mason

Mason has a food program for families! For interested families, weekend meal kits are sent home each Friday with students in bags the student can put in their backpacks. In addition, at-school snacks may also be provided. If you believe your student/family would benefit from the program, please fill out the form here. You can select weekend meal kits, snacks, or both. Please complete just one form for the family if you have multiple students at Mason, but please list all of their names on the form. Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns!
