MI Reading Challange
The Mason Schools Foundation will host their annual Reading Challenge (MECC, ME and MI) beginning January 13. We are in need of volunteers for the below activities to ensure a successful and fun event for the students and schools:
PLEASE NOTE NEW SECURITY PROCEDURES: Safety is always top of mind in Mason City Schools. In an effort to create an environment that is both safe and inviting, we are making a few changes to our process for guests and volunteers after consultation with our City of Mason Campus Safety Team and Safe & Inviting Schools Council.
Guests visiting our school buildings during the day must complete the acknowledgment of expectations while in the building. This will appear when completing the Lobby Guard process. In addition, guests will be asked to leave an ID in the office while visiting to be returned when they sign out of Lobby Guard. This allows us to know who is in the building in the event of an emergency.
Volunteers, too, must complete the acknowledgment of expectations. In addition, volunteers need to complete a background check. The cost is $16 and it is good for 5 years and covers all of our schools and events (does not include overnight trips). Background checks are completed at Mason Central in the HR Offices. The information can be mailed in. If you include your telephone number we will call to get your social security number so it is not written on your documentation. While the results are usually returned immediately, they can take up to four weeks if the results are mailed.
Week 1: January 13-17 (Monday-Friday)
The kids at MI will be reading all week and each student will be able to record their daily reading minutes in a google form! There will be a daily reading prize for the class that records the most minutes read each day.
Week 2: January 21-24 (Monday-Friday)
ENVELOPE COLLECTION - Volunteers will help collect donation envelopes
MONEY COUNTING-Volunteers will help count the money the students bring in each day.
LUNCH PRIZE DISTRIBUTION - Volunteers will help students redeem raffle tickets/prizes they earned
VIP EVENT- Mr. Messer has selected the evening of January 31st to host the VIP event for his school.
We're grateful for your consideration and continued support of the Mason Schools Foundation.
