Principal Corner

Dear Lion Families,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Welcome to Mason Elementary! We are an energetic learning organization that prides itself on meeting the needs of the community we serve today and into the future. At Mason Elementary, we have an amazing group of students backed by caring, interested, and involved families. Our students demonstrate kindness, courtesy, friendliness and a sincere desire to learn. Our hard working and experienced Mason Staff are dedicated to continuous professional growth and partnering with our families to provide the best  educational experience for all our children. The education of your child is our paramount duty and our staff is committed to providing the best school experience possible!

As Principal, my favorite place to be is in the classroom connecting with students and observing teachers as they create purposeful learning communities. Our teachers have high expectations for all students and work diligently to ensure that every student achieves at high levels. We care deeply about our students and meet them where they are by providing differentiated learning opportunities.

At Mason, we believe that creating successful students requires the best efforts of everyone on the Mason team. Each learner is encouraged to achieve academic and social success, enjoy learning, celebrate diversity, develop analytical skills, and model exemplary behavior. We empower our learners to be responsible for their own inquiry. Our learners are active participants in their academic development and every individual has a responsibility not just to perform a task, but to understand and do it to the best of their ability.

Carol Dweck, author of “Mindset: The New Psychology Of Success,” states: “No matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment.” In order for learners to excel, they require an environment that encourages them to put forth effort and take risks. All members of the Mason school community work together to create a nurturing environment so that learners can take risks without anxiety, can think critically, and are encouraged to ask questions about their learning and their world. 

It is a pleasure to serve as Principal of such a quality school. We need the support of everyone so that we can continue on a path of success. I invite you to come and share the joy of learning in an elementary school that demonstrates excellence! Please take advantage of all that is happening at our school and don’t hesitate to immerse yourself in the Mason Lion Spirit!

Yours in partnership,
Jesse Harrison
