November 3, 2017

Dear Families,

November is a time to remember all that we are thankful for and after this last wind storm I am very thankful for electricity!   This mini vacation in October was quite the surprise!   I am also thankful for the linemen and the local road crew that worked so hard to restore our electricity and fix the roads so we could return to school.

Parent/Teacher conferences will be happening before Thanksgiving Break.  There will be a 2 hour delay on Tuesday the 21st with no preschool or kindergarten that day.  This gives teachers an opportunity to conduct conferences.    If you haven’t already signed up for your conference please make sure you do ASAP.

On Sunday, December 3rd from 1-3 pm we will be sponsoring photos with Santa.  This is the 3rd year we have offered this event.  Our own Alyssa Havens will be taking the photos.  She will electronically mail them to you along with a permission to duplicate so that they can be used for Christmas cards or gifts.  This is an easy and convenient way to avoid that Mall Santa and enjoy some cookies and hot chocolate with your Mason Elementary family.  This event is open to friends and family of Mason Elementary School so please spread the word!

On December 8th we will be having the “Eyes on Owls” folks coming to share their owl presentation with us.  We will have a school wide show Friday morning and then they will be back that night for show for the community.  Please join us for this wonderful event sponsored by the Boynton Fund.  This is one of the many events taking place to celebrate Mason’s 250th Birthday.
