DEAR MASON FAMILIES:

Thank you for another great week at Mason. We are very excited to announce that Inclusion week at Mason this week was a huge success. It was great to see our students engaged in activities that helped them embrace each other with empathy and understanding. Please be sure to ask your child(ren) to tell you about our town hall and the classroom activities that focused on inclusion this week.


Have a wonderful weekend,
