"Seeing the students’ excitement in designing and building their own app is what the Coders program is all about,” said Paul Busick, VP, Card Technology and site sponsor for Capital One Coders in Richmond. “Watching these students from Henderson and Elkhardt-Thompson showcase what they have built, the fun they had, and the skills they learn gives technology an even brighter future."

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year! It gives me great pleasure to serve another year as your principal.
My first year was challenging, yet productive. I'm thrilled at the amount of support that Mason received from our parents, partners and community this past year. It was with your support that I deem that it was a successful year! For this, I say "Thank you!"
I'm proud to share that our students' data reveals academic growth in all tested areas. Unfortunately, we still have a lot of work to do to ensure that all students are proficient at each grade level. I am excited and encouraged in the direction that we are headed as a school and district. If we continue to work together towards the same common goal, "Student achievement and success" , I'm certain our students will soar to their potential.
As we enter a new school year, I solicit your continued support. I've worked diligently with my staff this summer to plan for a even better outcome for students, staff, parents and all stakeholders. I am excited!
Will you pledge to give your best support for the sake of our students and school? I promise, with your support and encouragement at every level, we will show the world, how exceptionally smart our students are! Are you ready? On the mark, get ready, get set, Let's go!!!
Rose Ferguson, Principal
