April 24 Mason Weekly Update

Hello Mason Families

Apply for AVID

As you know, we always have a large number of students wanting to take 7th and 8th grade AVID electives. The main focus of our AVID program is to help students master the skills needed for high school and beyond while also learning about high school and beyond opportunities.

  • Since we have limited spots with more students interested in taking AVID than we have seats for, we are starting our AVID application process.
  • If you are a current 6th and 7th grader and want to be in AVID next year, here is the process.
  • Fill out the AVID Application by April 29th: https://forms.office.com/r/V8LmNrNzUX
  • Ask 2 teachers to complete a recommendation form for you. They will have access to the link!
  • Attend the AVID Interview Info Meeting during Advisory on April 29th.
  • Wait for an invitation to interview.
  • Interviews will be on Wednesday, May 4th.
  • If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Szymczak at the phone number or email address in this evening’s email: (253) 571-7021  sszymcz@tacoma.k12.wa.us

8th Grade Dance Theme Survey

If your student is an 8th grader, please encourage them to complete the Forms survey that was sent to their Outlook e-mail from Mrs. Corpolongo or Mrs. Davidson on Thursday, April 21st about a theme for the 8th grade dance.  The survey must be completed by Wednesday, April 27th.  If students have any questions, they can e-mail Mrs. Brown.
