Many Hands, One Mason!!

Get ready for an awesome 2018-19 school year!!

Dear Mason Families,

Happy August!! On behalf of the entire Mason staff, we would like to welcome you to the start of the 2018-19 school year! We are very excited to partner with you and your child(ren) to help them reach their social, emotional and academic goals.


We are honored to become a Leader In Me school this year! This opportunity aligns perfectly with our continued focus on the importance of helping our students understand what it truly means in life to "Be a Leader, Be a Learner and Be Kind". Our faculty had the pleasure of going through training around the 7 habits of Highly Effective People this summer and we are pumped about the possibilities.

I look forward to meeting and working with all of our new and returning families this school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 313-432-4404 or bishopr@gpschools.org.


Thanks for entrusting us with your child(ren),


Roy Bishop, Jr.

Principal

First Day of School

Students will line up outside on the blacktop. Teachers will come outside to greet students and walk them into the classroom. Parents are more than welcome to walk their child to their classroom the first couple of days but we ask that parents please let students enter the building on their own starting Thursday, September 6th! This will allow us to make sure we are keeping our school as safe as possible.
