In December we submitted an application to the New Hampshire Excellence in Education ( EDies) (http://www.edies.org/) Board to become Elementary School of the Year.  We received a call yesterday informing us that we have been chose to move to the next level in the process.   Over the next two weeks we will be working as a school to develop a 30 minute presentation that we will then present to the Edies Board in Concord, NH on February 2nd.

 On Thursday, January 21st we are asking all the students and staff to show their school pride by wearing either their Mason Mustang attire or the school colors.   We will be taking a brief video that will be used in the presentation.  We are very excited to share with the Board how awesome our school is. We will keep you posted on what happens after our presentation!
