Many Hands, One Mason!!

November 11, 2019

Dear Mason Families,

Our community is so awesome! Thank you for your support at the polls last week! We are honored to be able to collaborate with you and your child(ren) at Mason and your support matters! Thanks for being awesome!


Today, we will have our monthly town hall meeting that will be separated by lower and upper grade levels. Our intention is to revisit our school-wide expectations and help our students understand the importance of having good character. Please ask your child(ren) what they learned/talked about during our town hall meeting when they get home from school.


The office needs your help. Safety is a priority at Mason and we need to limit the amount of adults coming into the building during the school day; especially during peak times (beginning and ending of school) of the day! Please allow your child(ren) to come into the building on their own and meet your child(ren) outside for end of day dismissals. If it can't be helped, we understand appointments happen during the school day. Please remember to call the attendance line for early dismissals, the attendance line is open 24 hours a day. Teachers are trying to wrap up instruction and get the students ready to leave so, we would appreciate it if all arraignments were handled before 2:15PM. The more notice you give the better. Thank you!


Thanks for your time,


Roy Bishop, Jr.

Principal

  • Mason School is also collecting can tabs off of canned drinks in support of raising money for the Ronald McDonald House that helps families with children that are sick in the hospital. A bag was sent home with the label shown below. We can all make a difference by popping the tabs off our old cans and having your child bring them to school! Thanks for getting involved!
