Come join us for the Mason County Family Christmas. Saturday December 10, 2022, from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM at the old Central School Gym.
Feast mode: activated! Mason County students enjoyed their holiday meal today. We would like to thank everyone that helped serve, we couldn't have done it without you. A special thank you to our Superintendent, Dr. Burdette, for serving and eating lunch with the students. We are Mason County proud and wish everyone a blessed holiday season. Thanksgiving Turkey Tips: Plan ahead. Cut down on holiday anxiety and stress by planning ahead. Plan the menu two to three weeks before the holiday. Shopping early for your Thanksgiving meal will ease the countdown tension. Fresh or Frozen? That is one of the Thanksgiving turkey questions. There is no difference in quality between a fresh or frozen turkey. You can buy a frozen turkey in advance and take advantage of special sales. Fresh turkeys provide convenience because they don’t require thawing, but they have shorter shelf lives. Before buying, make sure there is enough space in the refrigerator or freezer. When to buy the bird. A whole frozen turkey takes about 24 hours per four to five pounds to thaw in the refrigerator. Purchase a frozen turkey as far in advance as necessary to safely thaw it in the refrigerator. If buying fresh, purchase it only one to two days before the meal and keep it refrigerated. How do you know when it’s done? A whole turkey is safe when cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) throughout, as measured with a food thermometer. Insert a food thermometer into the innermost part of the thigh and wing and the thickest part of the breast, not touching bone to measure the temperature. Carving and food safety. Worried about food safety when carving and serving turkey? It’s best to let the turkey rest for 20 minutes before carving to allow juices to set, and it will carve easier. Use a clean cutting board that has a well to catch juices. Make sure the knife is sharp before you start carving. Storing leftovers. It’s important to store leftover turkey (cut into smaller pieces) in shallow containers and put them in the refrigerator or freezer within two hours of cooking. Use refrigerated leftover turkey, stuffing and gravy within three to four days. If freezing leftovers, use within 2 to 6 months for best quality. Reheat leftovers thoroughly to 165 °F.
Reminder-tomorrow November 18, 2022 is a 2 Hour Early Release for PLC Meetings. Students and Staff will then be on Thanksgiving Break from November 21-25, 2022. School resumes on regular schedule November 28, 2022.

Today was a BERRY good day as we offered Wild Berry smoothies for breakfast. Did you know breakfast is the most important meal of the day? We “fast” for seven or more hours a night when we sleep, and breakfast means to “break the fast.” It is vital that when we awake that we fuel our bodies for the day with breakfast!
