From Principal Hills

Happy Friday and cheers to completing our fifth week of virtual learning. Please take a moment to review Dr. Noonan's newsletter later this afternoon. It contains pertinent information related to the secondary schools' return to in-person learning.


For those families celebrating Yom Kippur, have a good Holy Day.


Sincerely,

Team Mason

Naviance Student Log-In via Clever

Mason has switched to an easier single sign-on for students called Clever. Students should follow these instructions to learn how to log-in using the Clever way. These instructions were shared with all students via Schoology yesterday. All Mason students have a Naviance account.


The log-in process for parents has not changed. Parents may continue to access Naviance by going to Mason's school-specific link, clicking on Parent or Guardian, then entering their Email or Username and Password. If you do not have a Naviance account or are having difficulty signing in, please send an email to Ms. Mural, our College & Career Specialist.

The Shows Will Go On!

Now that we’re riding smoothly into our 6th week of the school year, the FCCPS Choral Boosters want to reassure you that the shows will go on! We want you to be part of some of the great music-making that’s going to happen this year! The FCCPS Choral Boosters are committed to helping our choir teachers make “virtual” as “real” as possible, to keep singing voices, infrastructure, and relationships in place for the time when our students can joyfully sing side-by-side. To learn how to become a Choral Booster and to sign up for private Voice or Piano lessons, visit www.fccpschoralboosters.org

Support the Athletic Boosters

The Athletic Boosters have put together a Virtual Learning Emergency Kit that includes the essentials: flannel PJs, a mug for hot beverages, and a comfy stadium cushion to adapt virtual learning to any location. Go to the Fan Shop to purchase one for your Mustang. Go Mustangs!
