MASON GAZETTE

April 8, 2016

Dear Mason Community:

Next week we start M-Step Testing. Our 5th grade students will lead the way beginning with their ELA test on Tuesday, April 12, 13, and 15. The schedule is posted below. Please avoid making appointments during test days. Children need to have a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast to do their best at school each and every day, but especially on our test days. Thank you so much for all your support in the upcoming weeks of testing.
