Many Hands, One Mason!
May 19, 2019
Dear Mason Families,
Happy Sunday! I hope this message finds everyone enjoying the 80 degree weather outside! Special shout out to Mrs. Sperti for organizing the first of many Community Bonding Playdates between Monteith, Ferry, Mason and Poupard families this past Saturday at Ghesquiere Park! It is amazing to know that through everything, our parents are dedicated to doing what is best for all learners involved. Through everything related to reconfiguration, it is so important that we continue to make sure our students don't lose in the process. Throughout the rest of this school year and into the summer, I am sure many more events like this one will arise. Please make it a priority to continue to be a part of these wonderful events as it is an opportunity for us to build community with one another and break down any barriers that may exist.
Thanks for your time and support,
Roy Bishop, Jr.
