Mr. David W. Jones
Greetings Mason Community,
Can you believe that it is the last month of the school year. Where have these months gone? On the 24th we will say goodbye to our 5th graders as they move on to the middle school. Many have been with us for six years. There will be some tears. There will be smiles, and there will be lots of excitement. In GCPS, we hold one graduation for students. That comes at the end of the 12th Grade. On the 22nd, former Mason students who are graduating from high school will lead our fifth graders through the halls one last time. We do recognize and celebrate special moments such as the completion of elementary school. Our 5th grade teachers will celebrate this moment with parents on the 23rd of May here at Mason. On the 24th, our parents and teachers will have a special “Fun Day” for the 5th graders.
We are also very excited to have PTA holding our end of the year Carnival on the 11th. This is always a fun time for us to gather as a community to wrap up the year. I look forward to seeing you that evening. Hopefully, our luck with the weather remains.
For those of you with students returning to Mason for the upcoming year, we ask that you consider providing time to serve on School Council, PTA’s Board, or on a committee. Please email me at David.firstname.lastname@example.org if you can support in any way. We have several parents who have served us well that are moving on to middle school. We need you to sustain the excellent programs that we have here at Mason.
Registration for kindergartners and students new to GCPS will continue throughout the summer. Please share the link below to support new families in your neighborhoods, places of worship, or circle of friends.
Finally, as we wrap up our school year, we also like to reflect along with the community on our school’s LSPI (Local School Plan for Improvement). The link is below. Please feel free to share your thoughts around the LSPI with me using the email address above. Over the summer, we will wrap this year’s LSPI up and begin work on the upcoming year. Thanks for sharing your input.
Yours in service,
David W. Jones
