Dear Mastbaum Students and Parents/Guardians:
Welcome to another successful school year! As always, we are looking forward to students experiencing and gaining a world-class education, demonstrating vocational and academic and excellence, and continuing to develop their unique, valuable talents. Each and every student is a vitally important individual at Mastbaum, in our community, and in the world.
As each student demonstrates mastery of the skills presented this year, he/she will be one step closer to being prepared to successfully compete in the 21st century. Please know that all staff and administration are always here to help each student to continue to be safe, achieve, and to recognize and use his/her extraordinary abilities.
At Mastbaum, academic and vocational excellence and success are a result of daily planning, preparation, and demonstrating purpose, pride, dedication, and respect.
