Dear Families,

We hope everyone enjoyed the Winter Break and had a great week back at school. They say March comes in like a lion and that’s certainly true at Mason-Rice this weekend. We wish everyone attending tomorrow’s Mystery Dinner a wonderful time and we know our community will enjoy the great food and friendships throughout the evening.

Are you feeling lucky? Join us for our annual Family Bingo Night on Friday, March 9 from 6:00-7:30PM. Pizza, drinks and snacks will be served. Sign up here today and see below for additional details.

On Monday, March 12 in The Centre, Principal Bultema will host Mason-Rice parents to provide updates on school events and initiatives such as the recently completed Evacuation Location/Drill, S.T.A.R.S, Work Shares, and our student elected school mascot. We encourage all parents to attend, ask questions and stay connected with the school.

STEAM weeks begin March 12 and we still need parent volunteers in grades 1-5. STEAM Discovery Weeks provide an opportunity for the students to hear directly from the parents who work or have an interest in STEAM, to show first hand how amazing STEAM-related projects can be. Please see additional details below to learn how you can participate.

It’s time for all budding scientists to start thinking about their projects and experiments for the upcoming Mason-Rice Science Fair to be held on Friday, April 27. Please see below for additional details.

We would like to send a very big THANK YOU to Marcia Neiberg, who has graciously volunteered to be the SEPAC Liaison for Mason-Rice. If you would like to learn more about the Newton Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC), please see details below. You can also email Marcia directly for more information at marcia_neiberg@yahoo.com.

Finally, a reminder for the Spring Tea School Days Promotion. The weather is perfect for some Spring shopping. From now through Monday, March 5, Tea Collection, the globally inspired children’s clothing company, has invited us to participate in their Annual Spring Promotion. You will get 15% off your order & free shipping and the PTO will earn an additional 15% in the form of a donation! See details below.

All the best,

Will Adams & Jas Rai
