MASON GAZETTE

February 4, 2016

Dear Mason Community,

February is a busy month at Mason School! Please take a moment to check out upcoming events, including, a Special Person/Daddy Daughter Dance, Lego Day, fundraisers, Valentine's Day parties, and mid-winter break!

Jump Rope for Heart is winding down; Mason broke an all time record for donations to the American Heart Association! Ms. Raab will have a full update to share when she returns next week.

Keeping our Mason families informed... we are sorry to say goodbye to Mrs. Hoshaw, our office clerk, as she focuses on her family. Mrs. Hoshaw has been an active part of Mason School for many years, in volunteer positions when her children were at Mason, as a lunch supervisor, and most recently as office clerk. She genuinely enjoyed her time with us, and we will miss her support given to our students, staff, and families. We currently have Mrs. Sharp subbing in our office, and without missing a beat, we continue to give our Mason students, volunteers, families, and staff our "Mason's Best" everyday!

5th Grade Little Caesar's Pizza Kit Fundrasier

Our 5th grade students are doing a Little Caesar's Pizza Kit Fundraiser during the month of February! Proceeds earned help to offset the cost of our 5th grade Camp trip in late April. If you are interested in ordering, and know a 5th grader, please contact him or her. You may also feel free to stop by the office and fill out an order form!
