Dear Families,

I can’t believe I am writing my final letter of the school year!  This has been an amazing year at Mason Elementary School.   Thank you for all your support as I complete my first full year as principal.  I look forward to the dual role of principal and superintendent that I will play next year.

As you all know Mr. McCormick is retiring this year but he will continue to stay on as a mentor for me next year as I transition into the new position.   He will be around once a month to meet with me and of course visit with the kiddos.   I know we will all miss Mr. McCormick very much but we will look forward to our monthly visits with him!

Sadly we will also be losing two other staff members.  Mrs. Boudrieau, our guidance counselor, will be leaving at the end of the year.   We are so grateful to Mrs. B for all she has done over the years and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.   Mrs. Sirois will also not be returning next year.   She will be greatly missed and we wish her well as she works on growing her personal business KM Expressions.

We have hired a new Student Support Services Director, Jonas Taub.  Jonas is currently our school psychologist and has worked in the district for 2 years.  He has been responsible for performing special education evaluations, and he will be taking on the role of Student Support Services Director next year as well as continuing in the role of school psychologist and providing guidance services (we like people to wear many hats around here).

The Destination Imagination Team would like to thank everyone that supported the team in their fundraising efforts.  We were able to exceed our goal of $10,000.00 in just over a month’s time thanks to all of you!   It was a once in a lifetime event that these children and adults will never forget!

I wish you all a happy and healthy summer and we will see you on Wednesday, August 31st!
