Mason Crest Students R.O.A.R.!
(R: Respectful to All, O: Own Your Choices, A: Always be Safe, R: Responsible for Your World)
Students at Mason Crest have been learning about the “M.C.E. Way to Be,” and showing R.O.A.R. behavior at Mason Crest. This will help us to build a positive atmosphere in our classrooms and throughout the school. As tigers, we remember to be Respectful to all, Own our choices, Always be safe, and be Responsible for our world! Be on the lookout for Pawsitive stickers that show your child has been caught R.O.A.R.ing at school!
Check out this video of our principals demonstrating the "Tiger Way".
