Many Hands, One Mason!

June 2, 2019

Dear Mason Families,

I would like to personally thank everyone who came out to our Spring Fling Yesterday! It was a great time and a lot of our families walked away with some pretty cool prizes. If you won something and weren't present to claim your prize, we will be contacting you this week so you can make arrangements to pick you your winnings from the main office. I would also like to thank our wonderful PTO and Grilling Dads for organizing such a wonderful event for our community.

Have a wonderful Sunday,

Roy Bishop, Jr.

Proud Principal

You know your child best and we would like to invite you to share information about your child's strengths and areas of growth as we being working on the 2019-20 school year classroom placements.

How can you thank your teacher for a great year of learning?

Bottle Drive at Mason: Our Mason PTO has made it easier than ever to get rid of those ever-mounting cans and bottles! You will now find a marked bin near the dumpster in the school lot. Just drive up and deposit your bagged returnables and know that you are helping Mason to raise funds that will enhance our kids’ school experience. Thank you so much for your support
