Many Hands, One Mason!!
February 9, 2020
Dear Mason Families,
Last week, our staff continued to discuss Culturally Responsive Teaching Strategies during our designated professional development time. We are excited to have the right conversations that will continue to help our learners flourish even more than they already are currently. Our biggest takeaway was that our words matter. We must continue to focus on how we as adults (teachers and family members) talk to each other and to our learners. We must model inclusive language for them and how to show empathy and respect for others. We value to your support with this important matter and encourage you to register for our ONEGP Parent Camp Conference on Feb. 28th. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about our Diversity initiatives we have throughout the district and ways to better support your child in every area possible.
Thanks for your time,
Roy Bishop, Jr.
Afternoon dismissal is at 3:38 PM. Please pick your student up on the playground or designated area. The end of day is busy with lessons winding down and students getting ready to go home. If you must pick your student up early, we request that you call the office before noon so we may get your student ready at the necessary time. We are very busy in the office at this time so we ask your patience as we may not answer the door after 3:15 PM.
