MHS Media Center Transformed into Learning Commons
There's no "shushing" here. Instead, the heart of Mason High School has a definitive buzz. Over the summer, Mason High School's Media Center was transformed into a Learning Commons. This isn't just a name change - it's an attitude adjustment.
The Learning Commons' vision came from a spirit of collaboration, and was completed re-purposing many items already in the media center.
Mason High School Band Director Bob Bass has been elected into the membership of the American Bandmasters Association (ABA).
Flipping burgers isn’t on this summer’s agenda for ten Mason High School students. Instead, they’ll be putting their Information Technology skills to work at General Electric, KnowledgeWorks, Kroger, and the Western & Southern Financial Group.
Three Mason band ensembles participated in America's premiere music education festival - the Music for All National Concert Band Festival, March 6-8 in Indianapolis. Mason is the only school district ever to have three ensembles invited to participate at the festival in the same year.
