Dear Parents,

We would like to invite you to our G5 PYP Exhibition 2022-2023 on January 9, 2023 at 6:30pm at Mason Elementary IB World School.

We truly appreciate the support for your children and our grade 5 teachers as they have been working on this exciting journey and culminating experience in the Primary Years Programme.

Exhibition is a journey that helps students reflect on their time in the PYP programme and helps them reflect upon their strengths and skills. The culmination of their time at Mason is a celebration of their learning and is a special time as they prepare to move to the next stage of their schooling journey in Middle Years.

Please join us in celebrating our Grade 5 Class of 2022-2023 on January 9, 2023!

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!
