    Leukemia & Lymphoma Pennies for Patients Begins!!!

    The month of March is Student Council's big service project which is Pennies for Patients.  ALL funding gets donated to the St. Louis Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Our school's Campaign manager is Rebekah Bogacz, and all donations service the St. Louis and Metro East area.  The funding goes to help families with transportation to and from getting care at their local medical facilities as well as searching for a cure.  Our goal for a school is $2018.00.    
     
    Classes will compete against each other to win a free Olive Garden Meal enough for the whole class.  The top three classes will receive pennants to display in the classroom. Due to scheduling, 8th graders can either donate to their first hour or second hour teachers.

    The Mason-Clark Middle School Student Council launched its 4th Annual Race to give this November.  This great cause allows students come together in the season of giving to donate what they can to the Flyers Feeding Families Food Pantry.  Students bring in canned goods and non-persihable items for donation.  Student Council collects all the items, tallies and packages them in boxes for donation.  For the past four years the Council has worked hand in hand with Dr. Mateen to ensure these goods make it to those who need it most.  This year, Mason Clark donated a whopping 1,000 items.  Way to go Cardinals!

    remsept11 Teaching about September 11th to students with no memory of it

    For educators, figuring out how to teach the events of 9/11 is challenging, largely because there are no official guidelines. So the Mason Clark Social Science Department developed a project to focus on adjusting to a shifting student perspective and highlighting major themes that impact student lives which tie in with the event. The special project is used as a way to discuss race, religion, tolerance, and diversity with students who weren’t alive during the time of the attacks.  Read more about this activity and it's impact in the Belleville News Democrat.
