News from the PTA President
YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS IMPORTANT!!
Membership does not obligate you to attend meetings and there are lots of direct and indirect ways to help.
Hello Mason families. Wow we are half way through this school year and so far it has been a great year. Now is our PTA transition time. Many of our board members will be leaving this year or next and we want to continue our success in providing our Mason Lions and teachers with support for programs, classroom supplies and field trips. WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Maybe you don't have time to be on the board but have a special talent? Are you organized, or good with technology, crafty or handy? We can use your help but we need you to volunteer. We really strive to help provide programs and events that our students would not have without the extra support. Your involvement directly and indirectly helps your student and every student on our campus. Please consider lending us your special talent or even just volunteering your time at events. We have a lot of fun family events like Movie night, Bingo night, and the Book Fair coming up and we need you!!
Welcome back Mason students and families. I hope you all had a relaxing break. We are looking forward to some fun events planned for the next few months. Our second annual Zumba night is January 23rd. This is a great time to have a little fun as a family and get some exercise too. We will be having our second Bingo Night March 6th and our Scholastics Book Fair March 18-22. We still have more great family events planned for the next few months like restaurant night and movie night so check your calendars and join us for some fun filled, family time. Welcome back lions!
NO TIME?? NO PROBLEM!!
YOUR MEMBERSHIP IS IMPORTANT TOO!!

Thinking about Thanksgiving already? Just want to let you know we are thankful for all your support. We had a great turn out for Shop for schools night at Fresh and Easy, restaurant night at Chick-fil-A, our fall fundraiser was a great success, and we had a great turn out for International Potluck with great entries from different nationalities. I know time is valuable so any way you can support Mason we greatly appreciate. If you find you do have time to donate at events or for projects we would love to have your help. We have an amazing student body and they come from amazing parents. Don't forget our Bingo night November 7th. This is another great opportunity for our families to enjoy time to-gether and spend time with other Mason friends. We are also having our National Parent In-volvement Day November 15th so join us for din-ner and a movie.

Hello Mason Lions!
Wow I can't believe a month has already gone by! Thank you to all our parents for your patience as this year has presented many challenges. I urge you to make your voices heard. The budget challenges have directly impacted our kids and we cannot sit back and allow their education to suffer. We need your membership for the PTA. Your $10 donation goes to Sacramento to aide in voicing our kid’s needs. We need the numbers so Sacramento knows we support our kids. We also need everyone to vote. Please read your ballots, read the propositions that directly impact our children's education this year! Many of us have directly felt the impact in our child's classroom so please let's join together to let our voices be heard and let them know we value our kids and we value their education. Lastly we still need lots of help for events. Please look at the volunteer sheet attached to the newsletter and if you find an event you would like to help with please fill out the form, send it to school with your child or find a PTA board member and hand it to them. Thank you for your support! Please feel free to stop me or any board member if you ever have questions or concerns. We are here for you.
