Dear Families,

Hold on tight, the crazy month of December has arrived and in no time we will be ringing in 2017!

The School Club is working hard at getting everything ready for the Holiday Shopping Fair that will be held on Thursday, December 8th.  Each class will have time to visit the fair and buy gifts for their families and friends.   The Fair will also be open that Thursday night from 5-8, Friday the 9th from 9-3, and Saturday the 10th from 9-1.  Don’t forget to send money in with your child on Thursday so that they can shop with their classmates.  If you need any financial assistance please let me know.  On that same note if you or a family that you know needs help with Christmas this year the staff enjoys “adopting” a family and providing some Christmas cheer.   Please reach out to me as we are happy to help.

On Wednesday, December 14th from 9-11 am we will be hosting the Mason Breakfast Club.   Please come and enjoy a delicious breakfast and spend time chatting with other Mason parents.  RSVP to Heidi if you would like to come.  The menu will include French toast, home fries, bacon, fruit, and coffee and/or juice.

On December 19th at 6:30 there is a School Board meeting and I will be presenting the first draft of the 2017-18 budget.   If this is something you are interested in learning more about I would encourage you to attend the Board meeting.  We will also be having an opening on the board this year, so if you have ever thought about getting involved in local politics this is a great opportunity.

There is a Parent/Principal meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 20th but I will have to reschedule that to Tuesday, January 24th.  On the 20th we are having a school safety assessment completed.  We have a team from the State of NH Department of Safety and Homeland Security coming in to assess the school and give us feedback on our current practices as well as offer ideas for improvement.

Wednesday the 21st we will be having the 3nd annual Christmas Carol Sing-Along from 9:15 – 10:15 in the multipurpose room.  This is so much fun for the kids and adults too.     If you would like to join us we would love to have you.  The staff will also be sporting their Christmas Movie themed outfits that day.

During these busy times please don’t forget to take a deep breath and enjoy time with family and friends.
