Dear Families,

Happy New Year!   I hope you all had a wonderful break. This has been a crazy week back and I am really hoping that the weather settles down so we can get back into the school routine.    

Please remember to send your children in with their winter gear daily.   The goal is to go out as long as the conditions are safe.   Fresh air and an opportunity to run around are very important.  The children are allowed to bring in plastic sleds with the expectation that they will share their sleds with the other children.  The sledding hill is monitored closely and the paraeducators have strict rules to keep the children safe.  On occasion we will need to close the sledding hill when it becomes too icy and unsafe.    

Our fabulous School Club is hosting a family night out on Thursday, January 11th from 4pm to 8pm at Launch Trampoline Park in Nashua, NH.  The School Club will receive 25% of all admission sales from those that come Thursday night.  Please spread the word to family and friends. I would also like to thank the School Club for hosting another amazing Christmas Fair for the students and community.  Every year it just gets better and better.  So much time and effort is put into this annual event and the children just love to shop for their families and friends.  

The Mason School Board will be having a budget hearing this Monday the 8th at 6:30 pm.  We will be discussing the budget and the other warrant articles that will be voted on in March. We are looking at implementing full day kindergarten next year as well as reducing the school board from five members to three. If you would like to learn more about the budget this would be a great meeting to attend. We also have a school board position open if you are interested in becoming involved. The Deliberative Session will be on Saturday, February 3rd at 9:00 am.  

Important dates:

Tuesday, January 9th – School Club Meeting

Friday, January 12th – Senior Breakfast hosted by grade 4

Monday and Tuesday January 15th and 16th – No School

Friday, January 19th – Geography Bee 9:15

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2018!
