November is College and Career Readiness Month!

November is National Career Development Month! That means it's time to highlight the hard working parents and guardians of Mustang Nation. Parent Career Selfie sheets were sent home Wednesday, November 9th. We would love for each sheet to be filled out, so that our students can learn about all the jobs parents hold, as well as the skills and training required for each. Please send the sheet back with your child by November 30th. (Only one sheet needs to be completed if you have multiple children at Mason.) Thank you for participating and contributing to our students' knowledge of college and career readiness! Also, please mark your calendars for November 29th. All students are encouraged to dress up representing their future career OR to wear their favorite college shirt on this day!

Important Information

Food Program @ Mason

Mason has a food program for families! For interested families, weekend meal kits are sent home each Friday with students in bags the student can put in their backpacks. In addition, at-school snacks may also be provided. If you believe your student/family would benefit from the program, please fill out the form here. You can select weekend meal kits, snacks, or both. Please complete just one form for the family if you have multiple students at Mason, but please list all of their names on the form. Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns!
