A Message from MI Principal Eric Messer

5.31.24

Happy summer!  It takes a while for me to get used to the building being so quiet.  For my 6th graders, I wish them the best of luck at the middle school.  They have been a great group of students the past two years.  I hope they continue to live out Comet Culture and own the moment.  I will miss not seeing them at school, but I am excited to see them continue to grow and be their best at the middle school and high school.  They have a tremendous future and parents, time will go fast so enjoy it.  For my 5th graders, I look forward to them returning to MI as the leaders and role models for others to follow.  We will continue to build upon this year and make the 2024-2025 school year even better.  

I have linked the MI Year in Pictures.  These are the slides that were on the TV when you entered.  Enjoy!

Mr. Messer’s “Dad” joke of the week:

What do you get when you combine an elephant with a fish?        Swimming trunks

Why can’t basketball players go on vacation? Because they would get called for traveling

Summer Chromebook Repair

Over the summer, our IT department will be busy refreshing our graduating seniors’ devices, so they can be issued to next year’s third graders. Therefore, we will pause Chromebook repairs until August 1. Starting August 1, if your child’s Chromebook needs to be repaired, you can email support@masonohioschools.com to coordinate a time to drop it off. Otherwise, when your child returns to school, we can provide a loaner device while we repair their Chromebook.

Each year, the Mason Schools Foundation provides a backpack and school supplies to each Mason student whose family needs help. If you are in need of a backpack/supplies for your child for 24-25, please email martinl@masonohioschools.com and we will ensure your family is ready for back to school, and that their supplies and backpack are available to pick up during Family Welcome Days (School Orientations.)
