Dear Mason Road Families,

We have been so busy here at Mason Road School! Kindergarten students have been learning about animals and their life cycles. Grade 1 students have been working hard on their reading and blending of sounds. While there is a lot of learning going on, we are also having a lot of fun!

During the month of November, Mason Road School opened up a new preschool room. We are so excited to have Mrs. Terri Nolette and Mrs. Laura Kenney working in this classroom. This has allowed new students to join our school!

There have been some staff changes throughout the building. A sincere apologies for not personally reaching out to inform parents, however, there could be more changes throughout the year. As principal, I can assure you that your child’s best interest and needs will always be top priority of any staff changes.

From the Grateful Gathering to the PTO sponsored Polar Express Night, the spirits are high and smiling faces can be seen all throughout the building. Additionally, students throughout the building have been earning their “Mouse Cards” which recognize their good choices of being kind, respectful, honest, a team member, courageous, etc. Two students are chosen from each classroom to join the principal for lunch on Fridays.

Parent conferences were held on December 6, 2018. If you feel you need more time to speak with your child’s teacher, be sure to reach out and schedule a time that is convenient for you to meet.

Reminder! The winter weather is here! Please be sure to dress your child with coat, hat, gloves, etc. If we can get outside, we are going! We want to make sure that all students are properly prepared.

Holiday concert preparation is under way! Don’t forget to mark your calendars! Grade 1 concert will be held on Tuesday, December 18, 2018, 6pm at DUDLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL. Students need to arrive no earlier than 5:30 and no later than 5:45. They are to be dressed in their winter/holiday pajamas!

The Mason Road School Community would like to thank all the generous families that donated to our Giving Tree, Food Collection, and Dudley PTO Teacher dinner. It is truly amazing how many selfless people are part of our community.


As we head into the winter break, take some time to enjoy the little things. Play the board games, watch the movie, and bake the cookies. Before you know it, your now elementary school student will someday be a grown up. I can assure you, it goes by very quickly.

We want to thank each and every one of you for allowing us to have your child each and every day. They are all such amazing individuals and it is such a pleasure to watch them grow and learn. We want to wish you all a nice, relaxing, and enjoyable holiday season that is filled with love and laughter.

Happy Holidays!
